oh. my. god. hove.

Did you hear what happened today?


It was like a surreal painting playing over and over in my head all day.
“Was that really Jon Page on the podium at worlds?”

So, um…

“Wait, was that really Katie Compton on the podium at worlds?”


“Wait, wait, wait. Was that Danny Summerhill on the podium at worlds too!?”

That shit is crazy!

  1. freaking NUTS.

    and not only that, but jon just got pipped at the end, really – 2nd by 3 seconds.

    and not only *that*, but had the finish line been 20 meters farther away, katie was coming on strong – 2nd by only 1 second.

    *and* theres a us world cup race next year, probably in providence, with the uci top 25 coming.

    the big question is, can they come up with a course thatll be up to world cup standards? i think it was trebon who commented that the providence course is too fast, and will end up in a bunch sprint. freaking scary.

    of course, we all know that the world cup race should *really* be in portland.

    Let’s not forget to give props to Rhonda Mazza, rep’n Vanilla Bicycles and Portland Fuckin’ Oregon with an 11th place.

  3. US Racing will be H-O-T !!!

    I will try to see if I can out together a substantial US campaign in 2007. US racing will be HOT in the next 5 years.

    Today, I spoke with former World Champ, Ronald Liboton. He was psyched about the fact of a Cross Race in Vegas in conjunction with InterBike. See Promotor Chris Grealish spammed key europe cross personel during the Worlds, so the word is out…

    Snow sucks – mud rocks !!!

  4. now to just see if the courses can be kicked up that extra notch they really need to be on par with euro courses… most everything ive ever seen (mostly west coast – though nor-cal courses in the 80s were pretty nasty) has had *way* too much open space to string a group of euro pros out – itd be cross racing with a serious peloton, and bunch sprints. ugly. but the potential for taking us cross courses to the next level is immense – id love to see more brutal technicality, and less rolling/flat noodling-around-between-the-trees type stuff… the closer i can come to wishing i could die during a race, the better :)

    at interbike? awesome idea as far as getting stars to come (early season, promo opportunity…), but cross in vegas in september? UGH. brutal dust-fest in potentially boiling temps. not *my* idea of fun. but then, i think the cross season starts too early and wastes too much time with the lousy august-september-october weather anyhow these days :)

    i still vote for a uci world cup race in portland in the mud! weve got the terrain – i always tell people that this region of oregon reminds me a lot of belgium… (except hillier)
