New cross racers: Practice dismounts and remounts- Alot of time is given up at the barriers and run-ups if you can't dismount and remount smoothly. First time at Interbike: Make a list of what you want to see and go to those booths first- you won't believe how BIG it is until you realize you've been there 3 days and realize you missed a lot! As for CrossVegas, no tips are necessary: Just have fun!

My dream date for CrossVegas... How about a Pro racer with broad shoulders, a red beard, and the sexiest pair of legs ever seen on a man? None other than Robert Marion...and just so you know I'm not the only one who thinks so, here is a link to the BDIPC article about him http://bangabledudesinprocycling.com/post/40187410223 Yep, drool away ladies!

I asked my husband for a funny gluing story since I have never glued a tire... He told me he don't have any funny stories because everything he does is perfect, lol. It's nice to be married to such perfection!

I would totally watch a reality show featuring Adam Myerson. He races, coaches, promotes and always has an opinion about everything. He is the most entertaining person on my Twitter feed.

I'm all about some Vegas buffets, so a "Surf&Turf" Clif Builder's Bar. Packed with prime rib and shrimp flavored pieces and 20grams of protein!

I think the best ever cx course feature ever thought up is the hot tub flyover... I would love to see this at CrossVegas. For those who haven't heard of the hot tub flyover, check out this link http://www.cxmagazine.com/win-trip-uci-world-cyclocross-championships-louisville-singlespeed-obstacle-winners Raleigh and cx magazine had a contest and Keith Vonachen came up this. I loved it then and immediately remembered it when I saw this challenge! He even has a video of how it all works! But on second thought, since it will probably still be hot in Vegas in September, maybe cold-tub flyover!

Vegas had a race at the soccer field

A cyclocross course is what they had to build

The crowd was cheering and race began to go

You could already hear the heckler's say "you're going too slow"

 

Chorus:

Let's race, everybody, let's race

Everybody in this Vegas Place

Was cheering for the Cross Vegas race

 

The group comes back across the finish line,

Only six more to go says the lap count sign

The announcer in the stand says on the mike

The leader of the race sure knows how to handle that bike

 

Chorus

 

Number eighty-four says to eighty-three

a better crowd, you won't ever see

Even though we're not winning, there's no where else I'd rather be

This is Cross Vegas, so keep racing with me

 

Chorus

 

Over the barriers, then climb the run-up

the racers grab for dollars or beer in a cup

Georgia might stuff a rubber chicken in her shirt

Sven Nys dont grab for hand-ups, but delivers the hurt

 

Chorus

 

If you get a flat tire, try to run it to the pit

The winner of the race will be the one with the grit

We'll see them on the podium at the end of the show

Be sure to go see Clif bar for a sample before you go

 

Chorus

Cheering for the Cross Vegas Race

Cheering the the Cross Vegas Race

Cheering for the Cross Vegas Race

Cheering the the Cross Vegas Race

Cheering for the Cross Vegas Race

My favorite experiences with embrocation include applying before my cross race, then continuing to have toasty legs while pitting for my husband. I never had a bad experience because my sweet husband warned me of what might happen if did not use the embrocation wisely!

It keeps you from getting the crotch-rot... Don't ride your bike without it!

I want to see my husband be able to race Crossvegas. He is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and it would be great for him to heal fast enough for the race!
