In the opening races of the 2012 Indiana Cyclocross Cup series a handful of Team Indiebike.com p/b Angie's List riders have asserted dominance at the front of the Men's Cat 4 wave. Joe Laux, Scott Brenton, Pat Hirschfeld, and Justin Yoder have made a habit of camping out near the front of the pack. This past week Will McDermott and Corbin Schmitz joined them as they collectively took 6 of the top 7 spots, sweeping the open podium and taking the top two steps of the Masters 40+ podium.

Following the past two weeks' performances Scott has coined the name "The Black Mamba" to describe the team's consolidated effort at the front of the field. After a couple of weeks knocking at the door of victory the deadly Mamba finally struck this week as Joe and Scott took their place on the top step of the podium.

This coming Saturday, October 20th, at the Team Indiebike Backyard Cross race the feared Black Mamba will be coiled and ready in hopes of coming away with the title of Cat4 Indiana State Cyclocross Champion. Good luck!
