When I find the time…

I’ll update my damn website!

Let me think back… I raced a big-deal criterium a few Friday nights ago. Very fun, very fast. I like racing with road PROs. It is just so damn hard you can’t fake it and sit in. Not that I was doing much besides staying out of everyone’s way.

Last week I did a HUGE training block in the near 100 degree heat in Portland. yikes.

Now it is back to a typically Portland 60 degrees and rainy. So I ride my cx bike in the mud.

I’ve started setting up my cyclocross schedule.

The skinny?

Traveling domestically for the first month, then back home to race ALL of the Cross Crusade races and train before heading back to Europe or a month or more.

I love Phil Varner’s flickr page:

Pre-Tonkin Oregon cyclocross lore
. Note the apparently brake-less set up. Fixed? Coaster brake?

There is much to write. Yet, not enough time. I am up to my neck in cx.

Got a new batch of FMB tubulars and at the same time we sold out of Dugast Rhinos! It may be at least a few weeks till I see any more.

Belgie nationals colors on FMB SSC tyres. Amazing.

Got a small batch of FMB road tyres too. His special RACING PRO tread in 22 and 23mm.

White Challenge file tread tubulars are here and they are dope.

I am moving in with Pete next month, that is going to be really cool! Our new rental is all of 3 blocks from my current house so, I still expect to be able to spend many a late night watching South Park with Steven and Brian. Till I get tired and have to wander back home in my pajamas.

Heard a rumor that is back online.

I stole a photo from Jose for my header. Check out his photos. New-ish Veloshop team mate and excellent photographer.

Speaking of Veloshop, there is a bunch of new Veloshop kit at the Veloshop. i remember people were looking for some and I don’t have a list handy. Mostly xs – medium bib shorts and short sleeve jerseys. Call down to the shop if you are looking for some.

Sportieve groeten.

  6. that zo/vintage cross mash-up cracks me up.

    ira came home last night with an idea that took my cross bike to the next level. if i can pull everything together, the veloshop race could see my return to cx racing! i recommend safety glasses.

  7. Hey Molly,

    You can count on me for at least a couple of cx races in Belgium.
    Also got a key from your house that i forgot to turn back in. You will have it next winter.

    Keep on training!
