Dog Fish Cross

Another edition of the Dog Fish Cross, aka "Hermann Cross" was held this past weekend. Jeff Yielding orchestrated another great event in the heart of Missouri wine country. The city really gets behind this event and together with Jeff and his team make the Dog Fish Cross one of, if not the best cross race in the region. First class all the way from the fine wines that were donated for awards to the professional announcing by John Lefler.

Dave Wathen and Chris Locke ventured over to hang out with the "down-home" folks of Hermann and start their cyclocross season in style. Dave Wathen got off to a strong start on day 1 but yet another rolled tire cost him. He came back to finish 3rd overall on the weekend after riding "team backed" tires. The "hell with tubulars" could be heard through out the wine country...."Mr. Guru" was able to step up on the podium on both days and was very thankful that he was able to bring home the wifey a couple of bottles of wine. "Sunday was the best day for sure for me. The muddy course suited my lack of form and I was able to keep pace a little better. I still have a ways to go, but this a start".
