Passing the torch.

This is so brilliant.When you get to watch your offspring railing through corners looking like a young Belgian neo-pro. A throng of heckling cyclocross fans lining the course, urging them on.

You know you are doing something right with your life.

This is brilliant. Sent to me from Al in Illinois, that is his kid.

Al loves cyclocross. Brilliant.

  7. [...] Molly Cameronのブログにあったこの写真をとても気に入った。少年が一生懸命に走っている。周りのオヤジどもは、コースロープからせり出し、ヤジを浴びせ、おせっかいにも競技中の少年の体を押し、飲め!と言わんばかりにビールを差し出している。しかし少年は動じもせず、自らの進むべき方向を見据えている。そんな状況についてMollyはこう書く。"This is brilliant." [...]
