RTR Cross Camp Recap

FACTORS

When you schedule an event in advance there are variables.  When you do anything there are variables.  In the case of the Guns, Grits and Gravel Cyclocross Workshop, beside the logistical planning that comes with the turf there is the fact that the professionals lined up to instruct are what the whole thing hinges on.

Both our experts not only had races to do leading up to GGG, they had major stage races.

For Joe Dombrowski of Trek Livestrong, it was the Tour of Utah, a five stage event one week prior, while Jeremiah Bishop of Cannondale was defending his title in the high altitude Breck Epic in Colorado, a six stage mountain bike endurance test that finished the day before our cross camp.

Guns, Grits and Gravel


2 wheeled ministers of fun (or pain)-   First-   Let me send out a big THANK YOU to all of you who have helped spread the word about this inaugural event going down in Lost River, WV the weekend of August 28th and 29th.   The response has been awesome.  CX is really burning like wild fire and in many ways bridging the gap between the MTB and roadie worlds. It seems to have taken hold- Not just an off season alternative- But as a real focused discipline for this new breed of racer.

RAW CX

Raw  Talent Ranch in conjunction with CycleLife USA is proud to announce the ’2010 Guns, Grits and Gravel Cyclocross Workshop’  August 28th and 29th.   This is a fully supported two day extravaganza offering detailed instruction in a relaxed and expansive setting.

Last weekend after an extensive field recon analysis session with young expert and instructor Joe Dombrowski we were fortunate to secure a 25 acre multi terrain area that includes high meadow, low meadow, a very green virtual rain forest section, a pond, a stream and a route the overseer as well as musician made famous in the Rapha video likes to call the ‘Tarzan Trail.’
