@Dane Jurr @RevBigRing @gearlessinseattle The Bro Factor is what is holding single speed racing down. The fact that a real "pro" and his team thought the race worthy of entry means that is it gaining acceptance outside of the cut off shorts beer swilling crowd.That is a good thing. If anything guys like Ethridge should be bummed that more pro's don't show up. For a pro nationals is really the only chance to race single speed and have any real competition. If Justin showed up to a local race and did SS he would likely lap the field and everyone would cry about that.

@gearlessinseattle @RevBigRing SS is an open category. Any athlete should want to test themselves against the best and welcome the chance to do so. Don't wish the field was weaker, wish you were better.

I always thought cyclocross racers needed a certain degree of toughness and class, but I guess there are products of "T-Ball everyone gets a ribbon" in every sport now.  A quick look at the "PRO's" who finished in front of Mr. Ethridge shows 6 guys riding for local clubs and one guy riding for Redline.  Also how is a guy who has a team manger, team kit, and team bike not a "pro"? Get some gears and train like a pro if you want to beat a pro.

@flahute @ringcycles The real reason they got rid of the time trial is paying 2 timing crews cut into the profit of the event they do nothing to support but take all the credit for.

@ringcycles @RevBigRing This is just USAC trying to strong arm OR,CO,No Cal and UT into the fold. All of these place have thriving cross scenes without USAC. Cross Nats is USAC annual money grab where they take credit for a huge scene and growth segment that they had nothing to do with and do nothing to support.

Unreal. That really screws over the people who live in states where cross is not sanctioned by USAC. Also i seriously doubt anyone at USAC even know what an algorithm is much less how to use one.
