Blind date at the Dairy. aka: "a win is a win".

Ok, all I’m saying is… where the hell is the coverage of the new Chris King road stuff from Interbike?! I barely got to see those things when they were getting built up in the Veloshop. More info please. (this may also be due to the fact that I’ve stopped reading cyclingnews). A rare sight. […]

USGP of Cyclocross #1 – brief report

ouch. Everyone is feeling this last week of racing and travel. Starcrossed, Rad Racing + Vegas and now Wisconsin. Lots of travel, lost luggage, rerouted flights, the standard misc BS that comes with chasing cyclocross around the country. – I should probably start back in Vegas. I rode my eyes out. Had a pretty decent […]

Take a deep breath.

and savor it. I love this fucking sport. I truly do. One minute you are up, the next you are down. This weekend saw top renners hitting the deck left and right, saw riders dropping out and walking away empty handed while new names and faces showed their mettle, stepping up their game and filling […]

2010 Cyclocross schedule:

ps: have you seen Parbo’s new fan card? WTF! Look out for that tidal wave homie! This is my tentative fall/winter racing schedule right now. I really want to go back to Toronto and Granogue but, I have to be honest, I am still trying to pay down my credit card from my trip to […]

Oregon cyclocross season. Officially started.

I need to do a real post. No more of this Twitting and Tweeting. I need to let out more than “fah che” book. – I seem to do this every year. Win one smaller local race. Then crash myself out and break some bones at another local race. Luckily this year, I did not […]

A couple more awesome sponsors lined up today!

That is always a great way to start your week. Well that and then freaking out that you have not seen all the rest of your equipment and the first cx races are mere weeks away. – Thanks for the video heads up Booooooom. Combines a few of my favorite things: skateboarding, architecture and film: […]

FMB tubulars. Challenge treads. Dugast Rhinos.

I had a tyre sponsor for cx all summer long. And then suddenly, I don’t have a tyre sponsor anymore! Not many details to be had. Business is business. And business is good! I like to take the positive out of most situations. And the exciting thing now is that I’ll be able to ride […]

Top secret glance at my new cx kit:

Thanks for the digital tip Dean. I love me some acrobatic cycling. And I love how, after the Germans obviously nail their routine, the crews roll the goal net out for the cycle-ball competition. efficient. Tarck bike kids eat your hearts out. Backwards-no handed-wheelie with someone standing on your shoulders.

The lightness of being… race free.

“why are’nt you racing tonight?” Clearly, I’m training for cx… can’t you tell? Geez! (Thanks Yakima for the veggie dawg!) I sometimes feel a little guilty for showing up to watch some racing and not actually racing. The promoter scowls at me, industry types heckle me for being so PRO and too disaffected to even […]
