Racer and Chaser Mtn Bike Series: Black Mtn

This winter my husband started racing in a local mountain bike race series called the Racers and Chasers. I wasn't that interested until I saw that he was having so much fun. I repeat so much fun.


Husband told me to stop smiling at cameras in races and make myself look faster and tougher. Look closely husband is smiling. He can't help it. He loves getting out there and ripping so much. He can't even make a mean and tough face.


Wifey loves to be in the thick of things. When she saw how much fun husband was having she wanted in on the action.




But first she had to get a bike......Preferably it would be made in North America and it would be pink. Not to be too picky but if it could be light, with duel suspension and lots of gears that would be appreciated too. Oh yeah, she also had to learn the ride the bike.


There is a childrens division but the above rider is acutally in the 30-39 division.

Husband said there weren't a lot of girls at the Racer and Chaser events. Wifey thought "Hmph. A party for the boys, well that's no fair. Some of the boys told her she could race beginner class. She asked what they raced. The boys said sport, she said "Me too."



She gathered a fast female friend and off the boys club they went.

They crashed the party.

They were asked if they were sisters. Yup, the Racer and Chaser sisters.
Rumor has it they can be heard a mile away cackling while climbing.


Husband ran toward them just before the finish and told them they were both had won their classes. He asked them for a sprint finish...They are still working on their skills and sprinting through a figure 8 finish in front of a crowd seemed a little daunting. Next time perhaps the Racer and Chaser sisters will pop wheelies in tandem for a grand finale.



Top honors really go to the husband for having such contagious enthusiasm for mountain biking. My thought is that I should race and ride mountain bikes as much as I can. When others find out how much fun we are having they will flock to the sport. The trails will be occupied like an L.A. freeway . If only we could keep a secret about our fun.



Husband name has officially been changed to STUD ON A SINGLE SPEED. He not only won the single speed division but he beat all the people in his age too.....with no gears and no suspension. Sources say his riding improved greatly after a certain picture of him passed out in a "Fat Cyclist" jersey aired on this blog. He also beat his wife by ...um, 20 minutes.



Trying very to hard to recall a time where so much fun was had by all. Even managed to meet some very cool girls. People were so nice.



There really isn't a more fun atmosphere.

To recap:
Sunday, April 25th. A boat load of fun was had by:

The Stud on a Single Speed!







The Racer!


and The Chaser!

The End
