Sandbagger…What a nice compliment.
Being called a Sandbagger is usually considered a negative by most racers. But this CX race season it has been nothing but a compliment for many MoFi racers. You see, 14 weeks ago we began training (as a team) with Ryan Miller and his crew at Arrivee Sports. He brutalized us twice a week with sumo squats, stair-monster sessions, kettle bell swing, box jumps, all with a heavy dose of competition and competitive circuits. After 14 weeks of training the results are easy to quantify. Sandbagger you say… here are just a few stats comparing 2009 cx to 2010 cx. In the first three SCX races, Chris has been cleaning up with a 4th, 3rd and 1st place finish. His results in the same races last year, 32nd, 16th and 22nd. Greg has posted a 5th, 4th and 6th place finish in 2010 – last year, 45th, 73rd, and 40th respectively. Sean has probably had his best season in the MFG races, with a 6th place finish this week. Clive has consistently finished in the top ten, he currently sits 4th overall in the SCX series and 7th overall in the MFG series. Both Travis and Brian have had many solid starts powering their way through the field to finish strong above mid pack, consistently better than last year. Elise, a newbie to cross this season, has turned in progressively better finishes with a 22nd, 14th then 11th place finish.
So a big thank you to Arrivee and Ryan Miller for all your Motofish team training. We’re already looking forward to the beginning of our road season training. Hopefully with all our hard work we can once again be called Sandbaggers. Oh, and if you are reading this and your not a MoFi racer…you’ve never heard of Arrivee or Ryan Miller….
