and the world of blogs, webs, twits, videos, and even paper magazines. (still prefer the real thing, like Cyclocross Magazine.) can water down, or enlighten, this cross racing nation.
What cross has going for it, is that it is hard, and most of us lose, repeatedly. I came 18th sat. and 28th sun. I looked for some consolations, found none. I got beat by faster, more motivated racers. Period.
I rode yesterday, my big loop, and I felt stronger than ever. The climbs I powered up, when I hit the single track I just whipped the bike, not thinking. 3hrs of riding. Racing makes me faster and a better bike rider.
Isn't that important? Sure I've got my training intervals and shit, but most of the time on the bike is this "riding" time.
Style: Penguin or Perry?
or the Mod?
I suspect we will see Team Sky (I'm liking their style and speed), them English blokes, be outfitted by Fred P. when they are off the bikes, next year. and why not? Bike racers are the right build for the clothes. Thin, gangly.
my choice? maybe one of each, .... but mostly I like t-shirts and jeans.
but I might be ordering something from Fred P. from the Amy Winehouse collection for my wife.
speak your mind especially when you r drunk or been drinking lots of coffee, and you can't hold it in or edit.
