"Nicely done! I'll check out your links. Good to see another CX-centric team coming out of Bellingham this year - we added also Kulshan Cycling (my project) and Trailhead Athletics!
Despite the fact you call yourself a non-local non-team, I will…"
"Pirate Race - yes, those look very similar. The ones I used are white and don't have rubber tips. I think they're too tall/narrow to fall on - they would just bend & pop out of the ground unless someone did something really freaky.…"

"Check out Chilly Cross in Bellingham, WA this Saturday! We always welcome our Canadian CX brethren & sisteren with no special license requirements and your dollar at par! After-party included for another 5 spot. http://cascadecross.com"

The big one's I barely pull together. Western Washington University campus, '06. Through a tunnel and a rock ring sculpture. Tyler Ferrar came. Or was it NW Washington Fairgrounds in '07? Demolition Derby for bonzo mud, skate park ramp, and killer steep run-up.
