Closing in on CO States

The 2nd to last Wednesday Worlds went down today in balmy weather out here in the Ree-poo-bleek and I'll report it later. Matty Opp took the pics today and I'm waiting on them! (hint hint, Matt!)

Coming up: Coloardo State Championships. Now, for non-Coloradans, you'll be interested to know that there are two State Championships. The USCF States (a.k.a. the 'Durango States') and the ROTS* Championships. Weird, but we all know what the real one is. Ha! The course shockingly will not be at Xilinx this year (as it always/traditionally is...I'll have to get the scoop as I love that course and its bunny hop-able ditch). This year, it is in Lyons CO....just North of Boulder in a new park. I'll be reconning this but I hear it's grassy and flat.

I'm feeling better and better since last weekend and today showed good signs. All I know is that the work is in and the head feels happy. I want to finish up strong as I can and move on into some training before Belgie.

Looking forward to the recon report.
As the 'local' season nears its finale, just wanted to say thanks from this 'cross newbie for all the great info, motivation, and for passing on your contagious passion for the sport. I'm hooked!
Good luck at States and beyond, and remember that even if you don't have your best day out there, you've probably already helped somebody like me to have their best day. Hup, hup!

Holy mackinole! I'm blushing! Thanks you guys! Homies, I am STOKED you guys are falling in love with 'cross. It's bar none the most beautiful discipline of cycling and keeps me daydreaming like a little boy 12 months a year. Go big at States!

Hey Greg, what info do you have on the USA cycling version of states? Their lame website has nothing,
Not that I'm going but there are plenty of folks who would love to race against 3 others to get points and medals.

Yo Kris!

I'll see if I can find anything regarding it. I had the flier from last year somewhere but will see what else I can dig up.
