Widow Maker/P-Town #1
Cyclocross finally started up, which turns out to be one of our favorite times of the year. P-town cross is put on by Joe Johnson, a local firefighter here in Utah. We just got to know Joe this year and what a rad dude he is. His love for cycling and motivation to grow the sport of cyclocross here in Utah is outstanding. He puts a lot of effort into these races, and if your local to Utah please check out these races during the week. The races are lot of fun, and the courses are true cross courses. Jeff was able to attend the first P-town race this year and was able to pull off third place. Not a bad way to start the season.
We'll keep this one short and sweet. A 45 minute hill climb from the base of Snowbird Ski Resort all the way to the top called the "Widow Maker". The name speaks for itself, full gas from eight thousand feet to 10 thousand feet. Jamey Driscoll and Rob Squire were there and went balls out from the gun. Jeff and Tom tried to hang on but those two were flying. Jeff ended up taking third and Tom was fifth. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned for one of our favorites the Chaquamegon Fat Tire race.
