Joules Cross

Joules = The work required to produce one watt of power for one second, or one "watt second" (W·s) (compare kilowatt hour). This relationship can be used to define the watt.

Joules Cross was this past weekend. Promoted by Michelle Jensen of the Free State Women's Cycling Team. The event was held on some private land in Lawrence, Kansas. The course was a little bumpy (it is pasture land ), not technical and required plenty of Joules to be successful on the day.

Roger Harrison had plenty of pictures from his day in the pasture. Day 1 Pictures. Day 2 Pictures.
John Williams used his power to secure 2nd place on the day in the Master's 30+ class.
Richard Barrett continues a strong cross season with a 4th place in the Cat 3/4 class.

Boss Cross #1 & #2

This past weekend were the first two races of the Boss Cross series put on by Joe Fox and Jeremy Haynes. The races were held at barry platte park, which offered all the fixin's for a good cross race. The course was run one way on Saturday and the opposite on Sunday. The general assessment was that Sat. was harder, but either way it was a fun yet challenging course that had all the elements, including two desert crossings that would have Moses himself asking for mercy.

Rick Barret and John Williams represented the herd with top tens on either day. looking forward to the next installments of Boss Cross, which are to be held at the Raytown BMX track. Ashley I hope you are reading this.
