240lb CX!!!

Hey everyone. It's monday morning and yesterday was my first cyclocross race!! Kept in in the low lowww category 4, but I think its great to go out and do these to help keep you on track if you are like me and have a weight loss goal in mind. It makes training a lot of fun!

Congrats! I want to try a cyclocross race someday.

I did a MTB race on Sat in the mud. Good times. Racing is a good way to find more motivation, and learn you can push yourself farther then you thought you could.

Awesome!
Some of my crazy buddies have convinced me to try the SSCX circuit up here next season.

SMILING?! Wipe that grin off your face! There's no smiling in cyclocross!





Any details on your bike? Look like a cool monstercross build.
