We’re sorry there’s some dust collecting on our blog but don’t think we’ve gone into hiding. We’ve just been busy riding, racing, partying, having babies, and getting hitched (not necessarily in that order). Since 2012 is wrapping up, it might be nice to look back over the year and what went on with MTBNJ.
With a mild winter, many of us enjoyed warmer temps and building our base miles. We also started up the season in March with our Walt’s No-Frills Short Track Series. We’d like to think this was a hit as each race we saw more people coming out for a fun ride and awesome prizes.
Spring was full of mountain bike and road races for the team, with lots of podiums and superb finishes. We were also busy planning our two summer races - Stewart Super Six Pack (SSSP) in July and Mooch Madness in August.
We earned a scorching day for our 2nd annual SSSP but that didn’t scare too many people away.
Following the SSSP, we were introduced to guest team member, The Chair. So the story goes, Jeremy accidently left The Chair behind at the SSSP race, and some other teammates gladly took The Chair in. The Chair really got around during the month of July...
We are happy to report that the Chair and Jeremy were reunited at the Darkhorse 40.
August we were able to host our 2nd annual Mooch Madness...sans hurricane this year.
As the season changed to fall, some of us continued riding the trails and others raced CX. Lots of CX actually. We have been drafting ideas for the upcoming 2013 season and looking forward to it! From everyone at MTBNJ, we wish you a Happy New Year! Thanks for reading and we’ll see you (more often) in 2013.
