The Summit Daily News printed a great article that made me smile this AM. It describes the course for Breck this weekend and is what I love to hear: Course designers who want to make technical 'cross courses...and not dirt crits. Get us on and off the bike as many times as possible. That is 'cross.
But, ah, Jeff, this is funny:
Course familiarity could give local riders an inherent advantage over their Front Range counterparts on Sunday. According to Cospolich, so could the time of year. "I think a lot of mountain riders like to focus on the early (cyclocross) season," he said. "A lot of us are usually in good shape after the mountain biking season, while the Front Range riders can be burned out because they've had all year to ride their bikes."
Gotta get my digs in somewhere!
