Last weekend's races in East Tennessee, the State Championships and Kingsport Cup UCI, crowned the seasons State and Series Champions. The consistently fast and always upbeat Jeremy Chandler was victorious in the TBRA Series both in Pro/1/2 and Single Speed categories. Here he goes over the barriers. Note the beard and visor. This is anti-Velominati in every way and a style I fully endorse and often sport.
Here he is mooning someone mid-race. I post this without permission.
I really like and respect Jeremy and I'm glad he attends so many races. Cyclocross in Tennessee would be much less interesting and challenging without him. I finished 3rd in Single Speed and tied for 3rd in Pro/1/2. I did not, of course, repeat as State Champion, I was on a mountain in California, but Adam Meyerson showed up again and stomped the boys after a strong ride for 3rd on Saturday at the UCI in Kingsport.
Another TBRA season in the books, but the hard-core winter racers still have 8 races in 4 weekends in Knoxville as part of the KnoxieCross Series. I might hit one up, or I may be done. Time will tell.
Beautiful drive from Tahoe to San Diego today, eastern Sierra's, an incredible view of Mt. Whitney and a desert sunset.
