    New to Cyclocross [Photos too!]

    Hey all.. I am a mountain biker who does XC and DH, but this year I found a new world in Cyclocross. When the XC and DH races end in September, there is a long wait for summer again... CX runs those cold winter months and although I have yet to race, I've been out at least getting shots while I build up a cross bike... check it out, here's what Cross racing looks like in Ottawa, Ontario:











    You can view the whole gallery if you are interested here:

    No.. I missed that one because I was in Toronto visiting family. I will be at the next one for sure! Did you go to any of the ones that I have photos of already? Any photo you want of you is always free! Just give me the link, and I'll forward you the hi-res original.

    Make sure you come and say hi at the next race... I'm the one with the camera! It's so cool that locals are on this site too!! Good work Joe!! (Not me, Joe Gardner!)

    Hey Matt,

    I was at Upper Canada and I thought I recognized you. Having never met you in person, I wasn't entirely sure. You ride a Kona JS, don't you? I was the guy on the singlespeed Seven.

    I didn't have one of my better races at Upper Canada...bailed hard on the 2nd lap on the hairpin gravel turn. The crash left my left brake lever bent in 45-degrees. I had to stop and bash it back out. Lost several positions.

    I then had my rear wheel come loose in the dropouts, which caused excess brake-rub.

    Managed to finish though.

    Ride Hard,
    Mike B.

    hey! mike! that was you! we were talking about you and your bike on the ride back, actually. my buddy tim [master c, rides a blue redline and wears a green ireland jacket] said "now that's the way to do cross!].

    i haven't been having the best of seasons because of persistent health issues [i seem to be getting cold fairly regularly], but ucv was fun.

    i'll be at sunday's race with my crew. i am, indeed on a yellow kona major jake with campy bits. i'd like to actually get acquainted with you and joe-mtbkanata.

    no... i wasn't feeling well. i actually bailed on my ride at 6:30 sunday morning.

    two of my friends were there: andre [trek x01, wearing jogging shoes] and jessica [blue trek 8000 mtb, she apparently did quite well].

    sounds like it was a blast, i'm sorry to have missed it.
