Nittany Cross

This past Sunday was the global kickoff of the 2010-2011 cyclocross season in Trexlertown PA with the first UCI points being handed out for the season. While T-town is usually noted for the concrete crater sprouting Olympic track champions, those of us who enjoy getting dirty rode around the track instead of in it. It was a warm September day with four HUP riders toeing the line, and in a massive cloud of dust we threw down some solid laps.

Ian was quick off the front, showing great starting form-

I did what I do in the corners-

And Mark battled it out to the bitter end-

Plunkett pushed the pedals and danced over the barriers-

All in all, we put on a great show, fought for every placing, and had a solid time in the B and B Masters categories for the day. HUP Mid-Atlantic is looking like we will be having a solid year and we kicked off the season in style!

Thanks to Anthony from Cyclingcaptured.com for making us look good.
