They're still Penguins - just on fatter tires!

It was a beautiful, late summer day for the 2012 Millstone Grind mountain bike race.  Although it was rather warm and very different from their natural, arctic habitat, the Penguins, represented by John, Jesse, Eric & the superhuman Marc, decided to come out and test the waters. This was in spite of just wrapping up an epic weekend at the 24 Hours of Great Glen (for which the team also did a stand-up job, considering illness and newbie-ness).

Turns out 24 hours of bike racing does a body good!  Marc took second in his marathon single speed race, as well!!  (John did great, too, by the way - they just didn't have that many rock podiums to stand on. We'll have to speak to them about that for next year.)

Its shaping up to be a good season for the Penguins!

Who is starting to think about the 2012 season!?

Two events to consider that are not part of the typical penguin schedule...

Tough Mudder - Sunday May 6th

this is going to be SUPER AWESOME.  i'm soooo excited.  we have a team started with some folks in town and it already includes 3 penguins (Raina, Deb & John) plus 2 more considering it (Molly & Eric).  any more penguins jumping on board?  (Mark - I think this will be right up your alley!!  are you in?)

24 Hours of Great Glen - Aug 11 & 12

I've wanted to do this the past few years and haven't for various reasons (pregnant, life with babies, etc).  anyone interested?????

Also mark your calendars... to race and/or help.... the Ascutney Hill climbs are the same weekend this year
Saturday July 21 is the bike race
