2006 world cross champs part one


2006 World cross Champs part one:

Oh Niels…

The cute one on your right was the favorite for the U23 race. The fat, pimply kid in the middle? Got lucky. Two years in a row lucky I guess. hehheh.

I’m off to the gym with Cary and Brian in a second. More crunchs than you can handle.

Pete, Brian and I rode rollers and then all fell asleep on the floor while watching the 2005 Giro. My aspiration for tonight is getting back on the rollers and doing a solid hour watching Salvodelli hang on for the win.

Cary just set up his blinging KONA cross bike with a set of Dura Ace cranks. One of the 2 pair I attempted to mount onto my Vanilla cross bikes this fall with no luck. The superior tyre/mud clearance of the Vanilla chain stays proved too much for ANY combination of Dura Ace+XTR-Dura-outboard bearing sets. Looks like I am going to have to find something that WILL fit on there. Those Gucci Stronglight’s I have on my Vanilla Road bike? Maybe. Maybe.

Listening to Sunny Day Real Estate (the first album, of course.) Best album ever.

I’m putting my hands on my Chris King, Vanilla team issue tubulars, adjusting them and getting them ready for a road racing season. I got really excited again about Chris King hubs. Going to buy myself a pair of disc hubs to put onto whatever I end up racing (if you can call it that) this XC season.

I have NOT been riding much. Had a tumultous last couple weeks.

Ok, bad post, I’ll give you more dirt later tonight.

  1. Doesn’t Shannon run the Dura 10 cranks on his bike?

    I saw it on cyclingnews!

    I wonder why he has more chainstay clearance than you do. . . have you consulted?

  2. Ok, Ok.

    The truth is, Shannon’s bike is not as cool as mine. I mean, mine is a Vanilla!

    I think it states somewhere in my contract:

    “at no time throughout the duration of this agreement shall the rider (Molly Cameron) suffer the humiliation of less mud clearance, chainstay width or lightness of bicycle than other teammates, rivals, arch enemies or Shannon Skerritt.”

  5. Ok, ok. Really what happened, Campy paid me off to make Shimano look bad. You know, a little cash on the side, publish a demeaning photo of Dura Ace product.

    Sorry bout giving Shimano the finger.

    The moment took me, I made a bad decision. The money was too good.

    Think $900 Zipp cranks. 2 bikes worth. Maybe 3 bikes worth. I hear Sacha is building us spare bikes for each state we race in next season.

    I should make a journal entry soon so there is something more exciting to talk about.
