So my Google Alert picked up this nice story about the growing popularity of 'cross in Utah. It's growing everywhere, huh? The article also published some pictures which is always cool, but why oh why do these guys have number plates on the front of their bikes??? This isn't BMX and having complete visibility in front of your tire/bike (especially coming into barriers hot) as well as for folks who port their bike Belgie-style with the arm around the head tube would go INSANE with this practice. Why can't you guys in Utah tell your race officials to allow numbering on your uniforms?
