The Wed Morning Cross World Championships...2007 No. 10

West and weewaxashun today! I spun down on my single speed to hang with friends and just shoot photos of the Wednesday Cross Crew at the 'world championships'. I am still hurting and just taking care of myself these days so I did not participate and just shot pics and had fun. Clearly there were lots of people resting this week so while a big crowd, many of the antagonists were AWOL. Paco and JHK threw down and I was able to film a bit which was fun. Paco inexplicably scorched on a 39 x 16 single speed Primus Mootry cross bike this past weekend at the UCI races and did so again today! I watched carefully and it is amazing how he can use that gear (arguably a small one) so effectively against folks who have 2 x 10 speeds! Amazing.

wow, that's a lot of people! Is this at a park, or somewhere else? Can you write something up describing this ride? Pretty cool.

Whatup, Erik! Indeed, like your native Portland, 'cross is larger than life here. To get a sense of the morning rides (at least the last 10 weeks of them), click on the meta tag called 'cyclocross training' you see at the bottom of the original post. All posts that relate to teh Wednesday rides will be filtered so you can review them.

Nice. I wish my Ridley would show up. Then, I'd ride down from the Fort to join you.
