X Racing Turkey Day on the Western Slope

We had some Thanksgiving fun on The Western Slopes of the Rockies.
Carbondale celebrated with its first X race - I think it was the frist.
We set up a course on the school grounds and hoped the racers would show up.
I raced the B event and finished  in the top half -all I could ask for.
but look who showed up

Fast guy, endurance MTBer, Ergon representative, Pro cyclist and former IowanCedarfalls.....  JEFF KERKOVE.


Jeff is in his off season and came down to carbondale for some fun in the sun and a little speed work.  Racing in the A race - on his MTB - he was happy with his hard fought 4th place finish.

Jeff friend??? Karen Jarchow raced her fat bike in the women's A event and could have won if it was for the extra bike weight running the barriers.
The event was a big success and it looks like next we'll be a part of a Fruita and Grand Junction series.


  1. Great to see the Twisted Spokes colors being worn in Colorado. So at Nationals are you an Iowan or Colorado resident? Hmmm.

  2. I'll be an Iowan and a Twisted Spoke - next year as well. Landon - looks like you are in better position than ever for Nats
