super tech

yea i've been blogging a lot lately but i simply can't get enough of cyclo-cross. blogging about it just keeps me in check with reality since i will never be the fastest racer or able to live the dream of pure dedication to the sport. if anyone else is obsessed about the sport as much as me and follows not only the local scene but the entire sport, nationally and internationally check out this interview while your sipping your morning coffee or laxing after a meal with a fine glass of vino. its fun to read about what others are doing especially the wolds biggest stars. Nys is an interesting fellow and its rare to hear his voice with clear american words. the interview is text but its fun.

i new i was going to ride again today. it was a bit cooler but perfect for cross. i hate driving to rides after i spend all day on the road. while driving back to A2 from the north i had another little park picked out that would be good for tonight and i wouldn't have to drive half way across the map just to get there. on the north end of A2 is olsen park. single track. all of it.

for cross its super tech. on a mountain bike this trail would be pretty mellow but when the conditions are a bit greasy and your on the cross bike its great for technical practice. always turning the bike and negotiating very tight corners with acceleration.

i was on tonight. feeling really good. i did 4 laps here and the legs felt light and snappy. if i feel anything like this on sunday i'll be totally satisfied no matter what the place. of course i would like a good finish but if i can't stay with the leaders i will be happy just knowing i felt good.

more and more this year on rides by myself (which is a lot) i ride with my ipod. i love to trance out and really roll the trail with the right music. i had the gas tonight and the music fit the trail perfectly. some local racers are in the mind set that we only have 3 races left. not me. i have 6. the last 3 tailwind races, ashville UCI north carolina 2 days and nationals. cross is far from over for me. still rolling into the cold.
