The denial is over. Me and cross were more than likely a match made in heaven, but I guess I was in denial. Since my “lifestyle change” in 2006 (the losing 100 lbs and getting back in shape thing) I flirted with running and with triathlons and duathlons. And I had a blast. But there was always “something” missing.
Different circumstances and events have leaded me to cross in the past months, and it is finally all coming together! I currently have my favourite bike mech starting to… Continue

I finally bought a Motobeacans Fantom Cross. I spent $799 from bikesdirect.com. I have traveled about 50 miles thus far, and have a few things to say:
1) The bike is pretty good. I got the 64cm model, and don’t have any rubbing on my shoe like allot of the other riders are saying.
2) I bought some plastic strap-in pedals. I thought that I had them secure today (my 2nd ride). I was feeling SuPer pUmPeD this afternoon, and started slaying away at the miles across rural CA.… Continue

I have set up courses forever, and when I see pictures of the cross racers and what they have for set up it makes my blood boil whenever I see pictures of other races in other areas. Kansas Cross Racers should welcome what they get at a race. Look at the pictures with courses with a few taped turns, cones only, and or wire flags. Wow! We always make sure our courses are well made.

Can not wait to get back to cross, Sunday should be a blast from the past. I am looking forward to see if the boat ramp returns to the course. It may be flat but sand and mud mix well together to bring STICKY stuff in the forks, cranks, etc.. Get to take pictures again, this is going to be fun.
