Hey Christine,
I read your editorial about the UCI tire size rule, good work. I don’t see how this benefits anyone really. If they want to keep the cost down for Jr’s then the rule should only apply to them. Like was mentioned in your editorial the big names and teams will still have truckloads of tires and wheels. I want to know how the UCI is going to check tire size “during the races”. “The commissaires will be checking the width of tires on site, randomly or systematically, whenever they want, before, during and/or after the races.” I could just see it now lap 3 tech inspections, everyone stops where they are and a commissar caliper checks all the racers tire widths!!!

Thanks for the info. I'm planning on staying in Brussels and was going to rent a car to travel to both Lille and Zonhoven. Do you have any suggestions for public transportation? I tried looking to a train but couldn't find any that went to race course. I have a hotel in Brussels but am open to other suggestions also. Thanks again for your help and cant wait to meet you next weekend!

Hi Christine,

I'm heading over the Belgium next weekend and going to try to watch the GVA in Lille and possibly the Superprestige in Zonhoven. Do you have any tips or suggestions on how to plan the trip? I cant find any information online on where in the city these races are. Thanks and keep up the awesome interviews and columns.

Hi C, Wanted to drop you a note and let you know who much I like the Frogs. Thanks a ton for your feedback as it made all the difference in me going with them. Best, Basil

thanks for the heads up on the no "click" when engaging/releasing. i did read that on some of the reviews but as you say the learning curve shouldn't be too bad.

on a similar note SP has a new pedal in the works but who knows when it'll be out:

i'll pick up some frogs in the meantime,

Hi C,

Thanks so much for your feedback. You have me convinced that the Frogs are good option for me especially since we see little to no mud in our racing here (NorCal).

Hello Christine,

Andrew from CXM mentioned to me that you use the Speedplay Frog pedals and I was wondering how you liked them. I need a pedal with float and for now these seem to be the bes option, I've read various reviews but none where from cross racers so I was wondering what your take was.

Hey, do you remember a guy that hooked you up with a Trico Sports Iron Case? If yeah, that's me. I'm glad to see that you're living the dream! Down a Duvel for me (or two).

Okay, Frankfurt is one I might ride as well, I'm not 100% sure yet though. If I happen to go, I expect me to be so far back that it looks I'm in front leading! Haha... I'll let you know if I'll be there.

Yup, best of luck for you, too!

ps: okay, I saw you have a list of your upcoming races on your blog. Seems we're covering the german races in turns... I also have Zeddam on my agenda, but that most likely is not going to happen. Hmmm, I'm pretty sure I'll be in Hoogerheide for the WCS a spectator... Cheering for you... then... finally...

Buh, too bad, I'll be in the Netherlands next weekend (not that I don't like it there also, not at all).
I would have loved to go to Magstadt though, I have many friends down there (They really love when they have to go to rainy, cold cross races to see me... haha)
As for Deutschlandcup races: I'll most definitly be in Herford on december 31st. I'll try to be in Vechta, Hamburg plus the Schmelz/Homburg weekend (though otherwise I might want to make that weekend a Belgium weekend at the Vlaamse Cyclocross Cup - never been there, like to check it out.)

Christine, I blogged about your blog today, regarding your Mario DeClercq experience and one of your readers comments about dismouting (right leg in front of left or right leg behind left). Stole a photo too, hope you don't mind. I thought it was so enlightening, I had to bring it to the forefront.

Here's the link:
