in a matter of a sentence, Malone went from having a coach to having no coaching whatsoever!  the inconsistency only adds to the lore ... nice read.

Tubulars and hidden spoke nipples just don't seem like a good idea for most riders - a five minute truing job turns into an all day project. ease of maintenance is huge for 'cross, and there's real value in that - I'd pay extra to use my "unspecial" spoke wrench and have my wheels race ready again quickly if they needed to be touched up. if the Revs go wonky on Saturday, most folks aren't going to be riding them on Sunday. and if you don't do your own truing and gluing, it becomes an even bigger hassle.

i understand the "stonger rim" theory because of the small spoke holes (although I'd love to see some support for that), but I'm not convinced that it's a good trade off - at least for cyclocross.

@brianlawney interesting. i have no idea how receptive UVM might be - it's an interesting situation in Burlington because there's a nearby venue (catamount family outdoor center) that hosts a weekly MTB and CX series, and even some UCI racing. a lot of UVMers just race out there.

still, an on campus race seems doable and definitely worthwhile for school like UVM, especially given the caliber of racers (and graduates) from there.

UVM Cycling does so much for my local cycling scene, and I'm fortunate to have a lot of fast kids to chase around. I'll be sure to give back when I can, and to that end . ... is there a particular reason why schools with strong cycling programs don't host cyclocross races? As noted in the article, putting cyclocross front and center on campus is *great* advertising for collegiate cycling (and cx, in general). It could also be a fundraising opportunity and chance to strengthen a school's relationship with the community/local non-student cyclists.
