So glad to see Pedros still making great products.  I was worried we lost them a few years ago.

Sung to the tune of "In the Ghetto" By Elvis Aaron Presley, enjoy...

As the snow flies

On a cold and gray chicago mornin

A poor little CX Racer crashes

In the barriers

And his hecklers cry

 

Cause if there's one thing that they don't need

It’s another crash photo on their twitter feed

In the barriers

 

People, don't you understand

The cx racers need a helping hand

Or hell grow to be an angry roadie  man some day

 

Take a look at you and me,

We all will miss the USGP,

Do we simply turn our heads

And look for another race

Well the wheels turn

 

And a muddy cx racer with a pressure wash hose

Plays in the mud  as the cold wind blows

Near  the barriers

 

And his embro burns

 

So he starts to roam the beer gar-den

And he starts to drink

And he starts to heckle

 

Near the barriers

 

Then one race in desperation

A young man breaks a chain

He buys new cleats, losses a wheel,

Tries to run, but he doesn’t get far

 

And his wife cries

 

As a crowd gathers round a muddy cx racer

Face down on the mud with a beer in his hand

 

Near the barriers

 

As other racers go by,

 

On a cold and gray chicago mornin,

A poor little CX Racer  crashes

In the barriers

Late afternoon ride, applied some embro cause it was cold.  Never notice that it was working so whatever, come home take a nap (pre shower, i know gross) 20 minutes later I wake up with my legs on fire! Jumping out of bed i rush to the shower to wash it off. I guess it was old product and the action was super delayed.

I find if I ride to work I am more alert, have a better attitude and more energy too.  Then when I ride home I am relaxed and not stressed at all...

 @uhalevi Not when it's Free... My point is to those new to the sport or juniors is that you don't have to spend a mint to participate.

Noobs and junior racers take note.  Goes to show that you dont need all the latest, greatest high-zoot gear.  Training, determination and heart will get you pretty far.

Is Logan Owen THE most successful Junior Cyclocross Racer in North American history?  I would say so.  Go get em in Louisville Logan.  He's no cannibal...He's Logan, the Wolverine!

Whew...$335 for a cassette?!? That's almost 16 race entries fees, 10 Clement Crusade PDX tires, 5 Sram Rival rear derailleurs or 81 six packs of PBR.

Great bike, certainly love my 2012 e5 alloy. Hate the seat collar!  I torqued mine to spec and the seat post slipped each time.  Had to upgrade to a TRP seat collar during the build process.

I was just about to get a room in Bend for the final,  now I am going to wait to see if they can pull it off or not.  Too bad the USGP is one of my fav's.

Way to go dummies!  I'm sure selling brand new cx frames, all the same size with National Champion color ways won't be as easy as selling stolen car stereos...dummies.

Every Cyclist worst nightmare with out a doubt.  Hopefully, given the circumstances of his arrest, he won't be on the roads anytime soon.  It's getting rough out there, be safe everyone.
