Mountain Sports Festival Asheville CX Race

Hoffenchard was out in full force this past Friday for the annual Mountain Sports Festival cross race put on by Asheville Cyclocross.  With 3 ladies and 6 men competing it was a good showing of what is to come this September.  This is the first time the Hoff ladies have come out and I think they are hooked. Lil'A and Shorty McAwesome were rocking their mtn bikes, and thanks to our friends at Challenge, we mounted up some Grifo XS open tubulars to KB's Surly Pacer.  We had KB, Lil'A, and Shorty McAwesome in the ladies C race, Sweagle, Joshie, and RDR in the B's, and Nemesis, Kylie, and Drooh in the A race.  

This was KB's third cross race ever, her last one being in 2010, and both Lil'A's and Jens first cross race ever (Jen's first race EVER).  They lined up, rode laps, and came out placing 1st, and 3rd, with KB taking her first win!

Sand pit action.  It should be noted that the ladies rode the sandpit without dabbing the entire race.

Shorty McAwesome getting it done!  Rumor has it that she may have had a couple of libations nearby to calm the nerves before the race.

Winner winner chicken dinner!  Such panache...Kisses to the crowd and she remembered to zip up.  

Hoff ladies making us proud!

Sweagle just made it in time after performing in a talent show just an hour earlier.  No lie.

Uhhh, Kylie

Nemesis in the sandpit.  Notice KB's head center left side.

High five!

There really wasn't a podium Friday night but Cameron and Kevin from AVLCX were polite enough to present a "fauxdium" for the ladies. KB 1st, Megan 2nd, and Lil'A 3rd

Gold I9 belt buckle for the winner!
