45-year old Cat. 3, getting slower every day because job and life keeping me way too busy to train like I should.
I do ride with the bestest team in the world (NYCross.com) and the bestest club in the world, though: CBRC (Capital Bicycle Racing Club).

got it--Ellsworth is as much 'cross bike as is necessary for a poseur like me, especially with the DT Swiss carbon wheels. Them is nice.
Favorite thing about cyclocross:
