Mountain Bike Monday - A Monster Ride
Yesterday Dynamo geared up for the half Monster Cross Race at Poco!
A little chilly first thing, but things warmed up and it really turned out to be a lovely day! The parking area was packed with over 500 riders and their fan clubs!
The race started in waves.
They flew up the hill at the start!
And, here comes Dynamo...
Here he is at the start!
(Do you see him?)
Go Dynamo go!!
Our friends Jim and Missy came to cheer him on! Here's Jim at the start ready to cheer!
After the start we hopped in the car and headed to the front of the park for some pics! We watched and waited for Dynamo to come around the corner.
While we waited I just started snapping pics of everyone! We saw some people we knew!
Some riders were good sports like this guy waving!
Or this guy making a silly face...
Here's a closeup...
Or this guy with the blowup dummy on his back!
We got to see Dynamo twice at the front, mile 12 ish...
And mile 18 ish. While we waited we took a group shot!
Here he comes!
He looked good and was making good time!
We were yelling and cheering for him!
He was so fast that we missed him crossing the finish line! When we got there he was chatting with a friend!
Here's Jim checking in...
My parents came to cheer him on too!
Missy was giving Charlie some love!
Great finish! I was so proud of him! He works so hard and he's such a star...my star!!
Charlie enjoyed his first race! He was proud of his Dad! 22.5 miles done! Results to be posted today!
Thanks so much to Jim, Missy, Mom, and Dad for coming out to cheer Dynamo on! All the riders appreciated the encouragement, especially Dynamo!
