Ethos was out in size last weekend over in Manhatten, KS for the UFD Dirty Little Secret race put on by the fine folks of Big Poppi bike shop. It was a great course, and the conditions couldn't have been better. The race was supplied with free BBQ, beer, and tons of swag! Overall it was exactly what every race should be, AWESOME!
At the end of the day we ended up with 4 podiums. Little KRocket raced the Sport Men 19-29 and took a well earned 2nd against the boys. Steve rocked the Sport Old Man class and took 3rd. Travis took 3rd overall in the Expert and 2nd in the 30-39, and I took 2nd overall and 1st in the 19-29 Expert group.
My blow by blow account is here.
Here's some action photos from our boy JP who was unfortunately sidelined with broken shifty bits.
That's JP's bike... Ya, not exactly what it's supposed to look like.
Also, I wan't everyone to go check out on of our fine sponsors and good friends KUAT. They're doing a fundraiser deal in which you buy a Unite t-shirt, and the money goes to the United Way for Joplin. They need all the help they can get, and this is a great way to do it. It's only $20. It's a sweet shirt, and it goes to a great cause. I think it would be awesome to see a huge group of us racers sporting this T-shirt at the next race.
