living it again


yea i was getting worked over yesterday. i need to rest pretty good for the coming weekend. back to back UCI in NC. should be good. Nys hurting? actually this shot is from saturdays race in Jaarmarktcross Niel in Belgium when Nys shifted his rear der into his wheel and had to run about 1k to the finish. he still got 3rd. i guess running that distance carrying your bike will throw anybody into the red zone. i'm sure he was happy about sunday though. frick'n nice.


the pics are rolling in, big thanks to all the photographers who took time out to take shots of the race. super fun to re-live it. thanks andrea, gatto, balogh, and marne.

Me in no mans land suffering in cyclo-cross. if only i could get to saari! i hope i can find a nice wheel in NC. we'll see. rest this week is important. leave me alone DC!

i can't get away without a word to Sven Vanthourenhout. hes awesome. one of the only pros that dismounts drive side. pretty cool. new team jan 1. he will be the new leader of a new team for the rest of 2007. he said he has no hard feelings leaving rabo. he and Nys are pals.


ripping through the hurdles. that turn just before the dismount threw me off just enough so i couldn't quite get it right all day. i guess i got it right enough for 6th place!

so 12 starters in the mens A race. 11 finished. what happend to all the cyclo-crossers? i sure hope we have better turn outs at bloomer and states!

The Iceman is over. That should tell you why there were only 12 Elite riders. Besides, the name of your blog says it all. This sport is too hard to just come out and have fun.

I'm racing B's because

1. I SUCK!!!
2. I can barely keep upright.
3. I'm not even close to race-fit.
4. did I mention that I SUCK???


Maybe, if I have free time for the next tailwind race (or if I feel like it), I might double up.

Get almost lapped in the 'B' race
Get lapped in the 'A' race.

What a way to spend a weekend....

yea i'm not sure about that. as soon as you get on 700c wheels you'll be up about a dozen places i'm sure. i knew if i posted something about attendance it would stir things up a bit. i'm just thankful we have cross at all.

Yes attendace was poor for elite but the rest of the classes were good. we need to get more elite riders but cross is really showing what these guys are made of and it hurts. jay u rock!
