Boone and Crockett are both CX; Boone is CF and Crockett is Al.


How could I forget Ritchey Swiss Cross.
I need some lottery tickets.


Yea after I posted the boone, carbon doesnít sound like a good idea. I canít seem to stay on my bike when obstacles are not involved.

Ill ask, cross would be next fall, thereís no way I would try it this season. Plus I donít have a bike.

Are you also looking at road racing? That's all encompassing including road, crit, circuit, hill climbs and TT's.

Yea I want to do crits and circuits. The race team does a lot of cycle cross too, and that looks like a lot of fun.

My friend was California/Nevada CX champ for her cat one year, I think cat3. She used a Redline.

Same then. Skills, bump drills, etc. Be happy riding in a tight group while you're breathing through your tonsils.

Sometimes it's dry.

We had rain like that a few days ago. So heavy it could hardly be seen through. But only for an hour or so.

I did not ride today, as promised. Oh well. I spent a lazy morning with the dogs, before going off on a lunch date. Tomorrow I pick the wife up from the airport, after doing a little shopping. Today's drive to the lunch date was the first time the car has been touched since returning from the airport two weeks ago. Beginning Tuesday it will be used almost daily again. But not by me.

Well, after all, good art is supposed to elicit emotions.

To be more specific, it's supposed to speak to our existing emotions, and the vague art speaks to the wrong ones.

Nope. Took them myself. With my very own camera even, and not a cell phone camera. In my back yard nonetheless.

Show off.

I'm watching The Football Team visit Lambeau Field, hoping it starts to snow, but it's probably not cold enough.

It's October.

Reached out to a local race team, want to get this party started for next season. There was a local cross race today, seeing the pictures makes me want to go buy a checkpoint. sigh.

You should totally try a cross race. Someone might even loan you a bike for your first try.

Google search, because I didn't take any pictures of my commuter car, BITD.

Spoke with my sis. She had just gotten up from a nap. She sounded drowsy. Not sure if it was from the nap, the medication or after effects of seizure. I don't think it was from the nap and I didn't think the medication would cause drowsiness but I hope it isn't after effects unless it's normal. She also was kind of in denial blaming Asian food and a movie with flashing lights as a possible cause. It's sounds crazy but no one wants to admit they went non linear - it has to be something else.

Then I called my brother who is recovering from prostate surgery.

At no point did I tell them to HTFU.
