BCSCX Clinic No. 2!

OK, CLEARLY 'cross is growing off the charts. I think we had double the amount of people here at tonight's clinic that we had last week. INCREDIBLE! Again we had children, pro 1-2's AND national champions in our midst, all honing their skills to completely rip it this season. In fact, I even think some confidence is brewing on how the gauntlet is going to be thrown down, especially on other cross hotbeds in our big Nation. I hear PDX is in the cross hairs of a few Boulder 'crossers:

Ha! Kidding Chris D and our 'cross brethren in Portland. But seriously, watch your backs.


Today we had so many folks, Dubba, Matt Pacocha and I had to break the main group into roughly 3 groups of 15-20 and focus on individuals. Today, we re-capped our skills from last week, then broke into these groups and went deeper into the nuances. We capped it off with start drills. I damn near killed myself demonstrating fdast starts by blowing the chain right off my bike! Ha!

But all said and done, I am in LOVE with watching folks fall in LOVE with this sport.

Digital celluloid:

Dubba's new toy.
Challenge White Sex file treads.
Kabush: careful when you remount cause I think Dubba stole your seat.
Velonews was on staff shooting photos and video.
Only a section of the people who came tonight...I need a fisheye!
Yup. This is about family. SO good! Can't wait for my boys to hup it up

Huh. Mork, DIA and Argyle spandex. Seems like Colorado needs an intervention.

Ha! You pretty much nailed it, Muddy C. You missed Prairie Dogs though. In all sincerity, we've got some dear friends in PDX with Chris D being at the top of our Christmas Card list. Just screwin' with ya!

'Cross on.

Very cool to see that! Look forward to riding down and watching you guys suffer this Fall

The excitement and hope in your posts is so awesome. Thanks again.

I think you almost have me convinced that it's time to swap the cross frame and hang up the road frame. Almost.

Dude, seriously -- 5+ years of crossing and I never learned a proper remount. Until last night, I was a victim of the dreaded stutter step. Too worried about my giblets, I guess.

Thanks to you and Brandon for breaking this shit down for us masses. Awesome work.

Greg, why don't you have a little vid of your proper remounts for those of us that wished we lived in Boulder to join you! It's always nice to learn from the pros! Just spread the evangelism via the web!

Inspired by watching Pure Sweet Hell over lunch just now, I'm considering picking up a sweet new HD video camera. Would you guys be interested in filming some skills videos?

September 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

I think that would be a great idea! There are some great resources on VeloNews Brandon did a couple of years ago and Cycle Smart has a nicely produced vid as well. B ut I'd be stoked to do something too!
