Yetti Cross

The cooler (albeit slight) temperatures of the "fall" in Houston mean the start of cyclocross racing for Brad. This year is Brad's second year to race in the local event called Yetti Cross. Last year the race location was minutes from our place downtown and this year they moved the new location to again minutes from our place out of the city limits. Lucky us! For those unfamiliar with cyclocross, its a racing event which I would describe as a mix of road bike crits with mountain bike terrain. Bikes typically consist of road style bikes, with beefier breaks and tires to handle the ground. Obstacles are part of the course with several where riders have to dismount, jump over some obstacle (tree log, board plank, etc) and remount and continue pushing on. It doesn't look easy....

So for your viewing pleasure, here is my man looking all sorts of fine in his bike gear working hard!



Our bestest couple friends, Jody and Keslie, even came out to support Brad one Wednesday evening. Don't think look thrilled to be there....


I tried out the camera mode on my point and shoot to see if I could get some fun video shots of him jumping an obstacle. Excuse the crazy cheering fiance.....
