This past weekend the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team traveled to the MAC states and had a grand road trip taking in UCI C2 races at Grenogue and Wissahickon. I have to say at the front end of this text that the team we have representing the sponsors in 2009 is having the finest, most consistent start to a season that I have ever been associated with. It goes without saying that the riders – Pookums, Amy, Dan, Josh, and Will, are bonding well and helping each other achieve personal goals. The camaraderie on the road has been wonderful. The message at this time is about the racing and the results atmo. In the Brandywine Valley, the RS ‘Cross Team had the most complete two days of racing ever. Here is a laundry list of sorts that speaks to this:
- Dan Timmerman – 5th Grenogue UCI C2, 3rd Wissahickon UCI C2
- Matt Kraus – 3rd Grenogue 35+ Masters, 2nd Wissahickon 35+ Masters
- Josh Dillon – 8th Grenogue UCI C2, 6th Wissahickon UCI C2
- Will Dugan – 6th Grenogue UCI C2, 9th Wissahickon UCI C2
- Richard Sachs – 1st Grenogue 55+ Masters, 3rd Wissahickon 55+ Masters
Atmo there are many, MANY galleries on the net this weekend and mining the best pictures would be a task so daunting that I am not up for it at this time. To that end, I’ll paste in some links* that will allow you to find the images. Have fun…

An eff-why-eye as well: I have dumped a few cool “lifestyle” pictures on a dedicated Flickr gallery. These were all from my G10 and are fro this past weekend. have a peek – XXX
On behalf of all of us who traveled south this past weekend, I want to extend a hearty thanks and a dozen man hugs to Rich Roat and Ben Kiel from House Industries, our sponsor from Yorklyn, Delaware. These cats extended hospitality to us that is unrivaled in all the years of team road trips. You two went to the well for us, it showed in spades, and we are eternally grateful atmo. I also want to mention that Joel Ankey from the RGM Watch Company was present at the race on Sunday and it was a treat to see him again after first meeting several years ago. Many thanks for coming, Joel!
I know there is so much more to write, yet I am weary from the driving, the 3 days away, and the ongoing routine of still getting settled into the new empire here in Franklin County, Massachusetts. Apologies for any ommissions. Oh and ps – please buy some of my t-shirts so we can live (sic) another week. Clickmo!
‘Cross does kcufign rule atmo!
All my best.
