Just When You Thought Cyclocross Was Gone Forever…
It comes back.
Actually, the season is only over for lowly newbies like myself. The big-kids are still going strong.
The point of this blog is to focus on the "everyman and woman", not the hot-shots, so I don’t generally spend a lot of time covering pro news, but it’s worth mentioning that local crusher Sue Butler just won the National Title in the 35-39 division.
As a woman in this sport, it is so cool to have elite, national level racers living just around the corner from me (I’m sure she’s around here somewhere!). I can run into these people at the coffee shop or in the grocery store. They’re real. And they’re really down-to-earth to boot.
Congratulations to Sue! Way to represent!
As I was cruising around reading news from Nats, I also ran into this superb video, posted over at Mud, Sweat, and Gears. It’s very well done and does a pretty good job of accurately capturing what it is about ‘cross that makes us so crazy. Full of classic one-liners like, "This isn’t for normal people." and "It’s a weird culture. It’s kind of like ice fishing." it is not to be missed!
