Hooked On Cross

October 13, 2009

By Dionne Ybarra-Knudsen
Pacific Grove, California

Dionne Ybarra-Knudsen Velo Bella

Instantly hooked!

Yesterday I attended the Cross clinic sponsored by no there than ours truly, Velo Bella.  Not knowing at all what in the world I was getting into which is always better, I borrowed a mountain bike from my friend’s daughter, and shoes, cleats and pedals from Miss Mary. I received lots of encouragement from other Bellas. 

The clinic was so helpful!!!!! A must-visit when offered again. I was so excited afterwards when my new friend Susie Barber hooked me up by taking me to get some new mtn bike shoes. 

Race day, very nervous, total fish out of water. But again the Bella Crew true to their form helped calm my nerves with gettin me together and all of their encouragement. I met Rachel Wolff at the back of the start, so sweet, both our first time and both of us on mountain bikes.  On my first lap I fell in love!!!!!!!!!!  The pain, fatigue, dirt in my mouth, the nerves.  It was all wonderful and I can’t wait to do it again.

Today I learned about overdressing, about the importance of the right equipment, and that you can teach an old dog new tricks. There are definitely benefits of being of part of the right cycling team.  I couldn’t have done without the team support. Grazie!

Better late than ever…but the setting and these photos,

courtesy of Sue Atwood and Rebecca McCarthy, should make the lateness of the report worth it…

October 4, 2009 Cooperstown, NY



A total blast of a race – complete with beer handoffs, the course running through a circus tent, celebrity racers in the Open Women, a great live band and Nutella as prizes.

Open women had a VERY tough field, including a 19 year old junior pro who had been racing for Lip Smacker, Anna Young.  Suffice it to say, she smoked the field quite handily, and then went off and did the open mens’ race and beat most of them as well.


The changing leaves in brisk central NY…it was a BITTER cold start, but by the time the open women’s race began, it was warm enough for some to race with jerseys unzipped…see the blog link below.


Sue entering the beer tent…



Buff-legged Katina rounding a corner..


So, here’s the celebrity sighting: Bicycling Magazine’s “Fitness Chick” Selene Yeager, who was no slouch.  At all.  Check out her blog on the race


Official results have yet to be posted, but here’s what I THINK we got:

Women 4s:

Christy Chambers – 1st

Open Women:

Katina Sayers-Walker ~5th?

Kate Stewart ~ 8th?

Sue Atwood ~ 10th?

PS.  Here’s our Race Wench, Kim and assistant Eric.  She “won’t” race cross.  Yet.


And I couldn’t help but add this other mascot – from our “Brother Team, SCARR-Ommegang”
