The Wed Morning Cross World Championships...2007

Went down to Amante today to snoop on who's 'crossdified and salivating this early in the pre season. Baker shows up with his beautiful little son Axel in the Burley (OK, check, he's geeked up already as much as I am if he's prowling!), Taro, Lane and some team Haul-n-Ass bros. Small, but cozy.

On the ride over, good to catch up with Baker. He is living the dream and moving family and life to Brugge and going to throw his hat in the world ring this cyclocross season....fully Belgium style. My mini trip for 10 days is a logistical needle in his giant haystack of preparations to live this out. Sick.

We hit up Elks, set up the Port-O's and got it on for a few laps. Just enough intensity for me on what is a very low key week for me. The body responded unbelievably. So, we'll see....

Change subjects: CROSS CLINIC PART DEUX:
For Boulder cross geeks, would Friday AM early be OK to do another round? I'm thinking 7:30 AM. Comment back if you are interested. Last time we did barrier work, this time I am thinking about porting techniques. This may have to wait till next week though.

I can do weekday mornings. Count me in for the next clinic for sure.

Whatup David!

Tell you what, I will be out there at Elks 7:30-7:35 AM tomorrow for about a 1 to 1.5 hour workout. I'm not going for the full up clinic but just am going to skills train. Glad to do walk throughs as well.

Hey Greg, TJ here on the right coast. Just been enjoying all that your site has to offer and fueling up my own prep for the good season that is cross. Enough messing around on the road bike, eh? Good luck training and see you in Vegas I assume?

Whaddup, TJ?! Thanks for the note! My GOD, today felt all cross like what with the temps this AM in the mid 50's when we went out and trained. Yummy. As a former crusty East Coaster (CT), I remember those fallish days coming. CO is a lot like that.

You know, not sure about CrossVegas. My man Chris G is putting it on but it is a UCI race and while I'd get teh shit kicked out of me, it'd still be fun! The issue though is that to do this Master's Worlds thing in 08, I am verboten from competing in any Open UCI points races in 07. BEAT! Oh well. Maybe I'll go and guzzle beers.
