i've been racing bikes since 7, and now that I'm a master, I guess I have to admit that's a damn long time. I did my first 'cross race in '91 in new england, and have been hooked since in a bad way.

Favorite thing about cyclocross:
1) simplicity of riding your bike over any surface as fast as possible
3) spectator friendly
5) keeps me off the couch just when my less-evolved body wants to hibernate and pack on the pounds
I am Alexendria Guerrero From, Austin Texas, United States. I am US Army Special Force Team working at Us military base in syria, if you don't mind i would like you to send me message to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can exchange pictures to know each other better.
Three of those bikes always make it out to race day. I haven't raced cross on the Humber for a few years. If you watch some Blinkey junkyard 'cross videos and see a guy in a tweed suit on an English 3speed, you'll know who I am!
Holy Crap! I just received issue 10 in the mail today are you freaking kidding me? It is AWESOME! The new layout is absolutely wonderful and I noticed that there are more ads BUT they are pertinent to Cyclocross… bravo. See you at Starcrossed!
No sweat. I have a stock redline cro-mo (or whatever alloy) fork. I just set it up with a steer tube cable stop high straddle cable and way toed in pads. This worked fine when dry but wet weather is a different story my next thing I going to try per the issue 8 article is shorter road style pads. But I'm in no big rush I'm waiting for the shorty ultimate’s, then I'll really worry about set up. Hey! also the tubular wheel test/buyers guide in 8 was well put together , not just specs, but real world insight. I would have never known that $220 could get me a complete wheelset! Thanks again...
