All Crossed Up

Cyclocross man! I love it! I haven't been able to race much cross this year due to me working so much, but when I do I make it count. I love getting out there and suffering so much that you are certain you are going to pass out, but you want to catch up the guys in front of you, but still keep away from the guys behind. It doesn't hurt that most of the Durango cycling population is there either racing or yelling and shouting at you to go faster. It's really hard to get enough of something so good and so fun.

It's more fun when you are racing against a bunch of friends who you normally never get to race with. In this case it's Cody Wilderman, long time friend, big time pinner on the downhill bike. It was awesome seeing him up chasing the top guys today for most of the race until his back gave out. We had a long talk today after the race where we were trying to think of things that came close to being as awesome as bike riding/racing. We both concluded that the only things that came remotely close were coffee and burritos. Anyways, I need some dinner. Tomorrow is the official start off my week off from school and I am super excited. See you on the bike!
