First CX race of the year, and I was completely shocked at how the intensity was so much more than what I'd been training at. Wow.
I mean, not that this course SHOULD be all that bad, but for me it was. For climbers and those who have good threshold, it's a quickish climb, and then a large recovery. It opens on an uphill, and cuts across a side slope, before going up a longish (for a cross race) climb up a paved path. This climb killed me 4 of the 5 times we went up it. Once up on… Continue

I think I would have been top 1/3 in the C race. The course was a lot of fun, but still brutal...especially with a LOOOOONG run-up that wasn't fun to get going on the singlespeed. Next race in a couple weeks on the 19th at Cannonsburg Ski Area. Maybe I will see ya there!
BTW, I added a bunch of… Continue

4 months of training for it and now it is here!
Had the day out of the office to prep the bike and pack a bag. Off to France tomorrow morning...
I'm a little apprehensive, not of the distance but of the reputation of the cobbles, and of the weather. 160 mile sin the rain anyone???

Well I'm starting with what is the final countdown to my first real goal of the year... Paris Roubaix, the amateur 'sportive'... with over 2000miles under my belt in preparartion my taper has been more of an abrupt stop in the passed 10 days due to my FIL becoming ill...
Not really a 'cross race but I guess as close as it gets in the off season.

Hello everyone in cross land. You will not find anything too exciting in my first blog post as it is only to test the feature. I will say that I went to go see Forgeting Sarah Marshall this weekend and it is Hilarious! Crude, funny vulgar. Be forewarned...male frontal nudity. No kidding.
