If you have any comments or photos from this weekend’s race, feel more than free to post them!

 

While I was out doing other important things, my favorite course in WV was being raced on. That’s right, Thad’s singletrack, AKA, Race to ‘lil Moes. Moe’s is a bar in Phillipi, WV, and I don’t know if the race ever ended there, but if you have not ridden this course, I should slap you right here and now.

Joey Riddle had this to say:

Tomorrow in Philippi there is a MTB race on what could quite possibly be the best course in WV. Thad Kelly and his merry band of trail elves have the Lil Moes course in tip top shape. Come out and join in or at least spectate and chear on all the racers.

The Lil Moes race race went fairly well for team JBS today. John Weber was third place in the Vet Exp class. Sara Chua was the 1st vet sport woman. Clara Hitchcock finished third in womens exp. JJ Ford finished 4th in mens sport. Mandi had an awesome race and finished second in womens exp. I benefited from the miss fortune of others and finished third overall and 2nd in mens exp.

Also thanks to Thad Kelley and all his trail helpers for a wonderful race coarse. My favorite coarse of the year.~Mandi

So who else is going to join us in the Double Philippi Tour de Moe’s? Thad Kelley always gives a little extra coin to the person that does the best in the Barbour de Tour and then Race to Lil’ Moe’s. Racing is fun, racing twice is more fun and having it close to home is da Best!

Would have joined you guys for both, but I am in Florida with no elevation gain to speak of. My next double header races will be Rowlesburg/Watters smith. Good luck to you and Betsy Schauer Shogren in Philippi.

I really wish I could have been there. It’s always a great crowd, and lots of fun at the park where the race is held. If you did not attend like me this year, I hope to see you there next year!

Last time I went to NYC and walked around in Manhattan it really felt as if I was in a different world or something. I didn’t feel comfortable asking someone I was walking right next to where something was located or to even strike a conversation with them. People are in a world of their own and couldn’t give a damn about you (overall). Philly is just the same, but a little bit more open and receptive to communication. Got to admit, I love Philadelphia though… Jersey… last time I was there, people were CRAZY. They probably still are crazy now. Almost everything spoken ends in either the person gawking like a wild hen, or laughing similar to a hyena. Floridians tend to be quiet unless you approach them, but then the kindness shines through. In Virginia, at least in the Hampton/Metro area where I lived, people are starting to pick up the “I don’t need to involve myself in anything” way of life. I think crime has to do a little bit with people and the way they behave in public.
