Next Saturday is the unofficial kick off for the Montana Road Season. The Montana Junior Cycling Federation is hosting back to back race weekends. Starting this Saturday the 22nd, racing will begin @12. The race starts at the Clinton exit. Registration will be from 10-11 at Missoula Bicycle Works. The first Saturday will be 32 miles (4 laps), and the second Saturday will be 40 miles (4 laps). This is a great event for first time racers. If you are curious about racing you should definetly come out. MT Cross will provide full race reports for each category (to the best of my knowledge :)). Hope to see everyone out.
This week's poll has been interesting. Scotty Herzig is holding a good lead with 30% of the votes, but Josh Tack is making a late surge with 23% of the votes. Kiefer Hahn, Matt Seeley, and Brad Morgan all have 11% of the votes and Frank Gonzalez has 7%. I think the poll is accurate. Scott is a great rider and has consistently performed at a high level year after year. I was surprised to see my teamate jtack get some votes this late in the poll. Maybe it was the brief show of his climbing ability in Saturday's group ride?? Another thing I noticed was that the top riders are all from different teams. GAS, MT Velo, NRO, and FVV all have dudes in the top 5. That should provide for good racing this season. Thanks everyone for voting. One more day left. Keep your eyes open for this week's poll.
