Recent Race Results

The NCC had a few team members compete in races around New England over the last few weekends.

Shedd Park, 11/19

Several masters athletes drove to Shedd Park in Lowell, Massachusetts for this great event put on by Riverside Racing. Henry van den Broek returned to action after some time away from his bike this season. He placed 25th in the Men’s 50+ category. Colman O’Connor and David Goodwin raced in the Men’s 60+, placing 5th and 10th, respectively, for NCC, out of 39 riders. Both avoided a crash that took out a couple of their competitors.

Crossburg, 11/25

Two NCC masters athletes competed at Crossburg, in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Joe Lellman placed a strong 5th in the Men’s 60+ category, while teammate Henry van den Broek was 8th in the Men’s 50+.

Secret Squirrel, 11/26

A few folks made it out to Raynham, Massachusetts for Secret Squirrel. David Goodwin finished 54th in the all-ages Sport Men category. Jack Quinlan (JAM Fund/NCC) was in the same race, but DNF. Mark Hewitt represented the JAM Fund in the Men’s Elite race, but he was also unable to finish.

Ice Weasels Cometh

Northampton’s own Colin Reuter brought us another fantastic edition of Ice Weasels, in Southwick, Massachusetts. There was sand. There was music. There were dogs. There were handups. There were tandems. There were strider bikes. It was Ice Weasels, what can ya say?

U15 Boys

Anders Krause (NCC Trailblasters) finished a strong 4th in the U15 Boys race. Teammate Miles Abrams finished 13th to cap off his season.

Beginner Men

Eduardo Nunez finished 21st for NCC in the Beginner Men category. Jonathan O’Keeffe was 41st.

Killer B Men

Jason Johnson placed 69th in the Killer B “non-master” category, and…
