Julie Comes Out On Top!

It was a great weekend in Warwick, RI for the New England Verge Series finale at NBX. I remember last year at this race being bitter cold, the only race at which I wore leg-warmers. This year brought unseasonably warm conditions, in the 50s - perfect for a long walk on the beach! But this isn’t a weather report…

Let’s talk about Julie! If you’ve ever met Julie, you know that she’s overwhelmingly positive and also incredibly humble. Put her in front of a camera and she blushes immediately. Tell her how great she is and she turns it around into a compliment to you. So let’s use this week to say all the nice things about her that she won't say herself? Deal? Ok, good.

Northampton CX, A Team Averica Dinner Discussion

Julie - I put my handlebar in Brittlee Bowman’s wheel and feel badly about it. I tried chasing her around the entire course to apologize, but she wouldn’t wait up. Sorry Brittlee!

Hannah - I ate it on the pro-only section. But I kept riding it because why not?

Erin - I needed a closer look at the barrier. Unclipping is overrated.


Julie - On Saturday I carried my bike up the run-up like it was a teacup, with my pinky high in the air.

Hannah - I finished on the lead lap, triumphantly.

Erin - I saw Julie stop pedaling for a second and it made me pedal harder. I still didn’t catch her.

Team Averica with Photographer Chris McIntosh

I would love to call myself a lark, but it’s really only under duress.  Like catching the crisp autumn light at Larz Anderson in Brookline, MA for photos with local, Boston-based photographer, Chris McIntosh.  The Avericans, as we are interpersonally known, showed up ready to meet the world, through images.  There was running, sprinting, riding up stairs, and ledge-sitting.  Also cartwheeling, which was Erin’s idea and she’s especially bad at them.  Something about the landing process, doesn’t quite work.  Julie showed us the pointy end of her skill base by riding up a set of steps. I’ll chalk it up to her new Seven, even she said it was like cheating.  It was fun.  #CxIsHere, we are working hard for results, and looking like we’re hardly working--wait that’s not true, it’s ‘cross.  See you over the barriers, through the sand and mud with a fight for the finish line.

#CrossIsHere, #NECX Edition

It's finally happening. That time of year has arrived. Yes friends, we can officially say that 'cross is indeed HERE. And here to stay, at least for the next 3 months. If you keep up with any of us on social media you probably know that some of our team has been dabbling in the 'cross scene for a couple weeks now, but the unofficial Official #NECX Season Opener has always been QuadCX. And so, with that in mind, here's a little recap of Mike Wissell's Official Season Opening Race (and a few pictures of the weekend that we were able to scrounge up):
