Cindy Is Going To Worlds!
May 20, 2018, 12:00 am

While plenty of us were weathering the storm at Arcadia Grit & Gravel or waiting out the rain a bit closer to home, John and Cindy Duby were wrapping up a week-long trip to Alabama with the culmination of a lot of hard work with the Xterra Offroad at Oak Mountain. 

Take the three disciplines of a normal triathlon, and now make it even harder. The XTERRA Offroad series offers a much dirtier way to swim, bike, and run, pushing athletes into the woods for mountain biking and trail running. The added challenge make the sport very demanding, and requires a very high level of fitness and even more skill; bike handling is often just as important in these events as pure horsepower. 

It was a great week for the Duby's, with great weather making their trip just about perfect. And that extra time in South is especially important this year, where we've had very few truly warm days all spring. Having time to get to know the course and acclimatize to the heat and humidity was a huge help, and with lots of time to put the Scott Spark to use all over the Oak Mountian course, it was a lot of fun, too! 

While Cindy did the racing, John was able to hop in and ride all week, too. It certainly makes for a heckuva fun time and an unforgettable adventure! 

In just her first offroad tri, Cindy put everything together perfectly, including a strong bike split, and finished second in her age group! They better get ready for another trip, too; finishing on the podium and posting her overall time, she qualified for the Xterra Worlds in Hawaii on October 28. We think that sounds like ideal Iceman training! 

From everyone at City Bike Shop and the rest of the team, congrats Cindy! 

Also, and a little closer to home, our own Mike Walters put down the shovel and traded building trails for actually racing bikes at a memorable edition of Arcadia Grit & Gravel. The forecast was dicey most of the week, and the clouds were low and the skies dark as the sun rose Saturday morning. There was a strong downpour with lingering showers as the racers took off, and the opening miles of gravel roads were turned to a sloppy, soggy mess. It was like riding through peanut butter, and Mike was looking to hold until he could show his stuff in the singeltrack. After what seemed like forever, Mike hit some of the most enjoyable (and today, slickest) trails in Northern Michigan. Even after being a bit backed up by slower traffic, Mike posted a very strong 12th place in his age group, right around the two-hour mark. 

In the Short Grit, David Haapala rolled in just a minute behind his flying-fast son, Will. Will and the Norte kids did really well in pretty abysmal conditions, all under the watchful eye of David and fellow Norte-pa Michael DeBruyn.
