The Wed Morning Cross World Championships...2007 No. 2

It is on. The group was extensive today. It will only get bigger as the weeks roll on and Mountain States Cup and other racing series finish up and those people start transitioning into their 'cross mode. I'll ask them where they've been...

Inexplicably fun this AM. People are giddy about the season upcoming. We railed it at Elks and then a park on Folsom this AM. The port-o's were in good use and everyone got their share of technique under stress this AM. I made the course a bit long-ish today and tried to get as many off the bike sections as I could find. I think it worked. People *were* worked it seemed.

The body responded well and I listened to myself and T and stayed within it the whole time. Holding back a bit to truly see where things are at. Even power output, no wad-shooting. Only flow while mixing it up with my friends. Smiles. That's about all I'll say for now. Just glee.

Some pics below. Brandon's got a new bike sponsor this year so people's jaws as you would expect were on the floor. It was pure show and tell time for that boy. Like a kindergartener with a new Transformer.

Brandon's new toy (Bike 1 of 2 of course...)

Time's interesting Ahead system being explained...

Baker smirking as he's heading off with family in tow to Belgium

Troy throwing down this AM.



Ben Turner's been spotted and involed in secret training missions.


Yum 2.

TRP are coming out with carbon versions of these. Yum again.
SRAM is going to make a move in 'cross big time . It just makes sense.

OMG! who is that next to Brandon? Is it T Johnson? He was ranked 30th in the world by the UCI in 2004, before the shark bite!!!! What is he doing in Btown?

Whatup Kiwi?? This is not KL, is it?

Indeed that is T Johnson. We all had a good 'ol time this AM at the "Boulder World Cup". T Johnson and I were tradin' some paint. Fun! True story:
Ya gotta remember that this is Boulder so everyone and their uncle is some sort of world champ or pro. So he lines up next to me this AM and I'm checking out his tubulars and on teh side they say "T Johnson". I'm like: Dude, no fair. You have Tim Johnson's wheels!" He's like: "Uh, no, they're mine. Ty;er Johnson's" Ha! I felt bad! But I digress. We had a good old time indeed. He's a cool cat.

So, perhaps this isn't the best place to ask these questions, but the internet is proving to be a damned poor resource tonight and this blogger seems pretty informed. I just moved to Boulder and am wondering about (a) what race license I need (b) where I can find a complete race calendar (should one exist) and (c) how do I join onto the Wednesday morning training ride.
If you have detailed information, or just want to tell me to take my comments elsewhere, it is

Take your comments elsewhere!

Ha! Kidding Ben! Wilkommen to za Reepoobleek, man.

For the CO, NM and NV regions, you need an ACA license as opposed to a USCF license (although random crits and road races occasionally penetrate our fortress of steel so it's good to have both. ACA is the American Cycling Association which is the governing body in this here part of the country. If you have a USCF license, you can typically trade cat for cat with a resume sent with your application. You can get license info and the complete road and cross schedules here:

As the the Wed AM cross rides, we typically meet up at Amante Coffee about 8AM and train for a few hours.

What's up Greg? Clay here - you know, white sunglasses Clay. I've never done the Wed Boulder ride - how long do you guys go? It's always fun to get my ass kicked before 9am.

Whatup Clay! Haven't seen you since Winter Park. Hope you're well!

Wed AM's are basically 8 to 10. Two to 3 sessions.

See you this season??
