^ I see almost no aero wheels in that shot which I find really interesting. Is this a collegiate race and if so is that a rule or something?

On the other hand everyone is in their drops. Nice.

cat 4 race. there were numerous people with deep dish carbons, little hard to see from the picture angle. my c50 tubs were missing a rear tire so i raced my c24's instead.

didn't even know I was going to be racing until the day before so I'm very happy. my teammate also took 2nd out of a 3 man break in the 2/3's which was a pretty insane race

A couple of cyclocross photos, plenty of suffering to go around in them.

Passing my teammate on the way to the front of the race:



And a couple of laps later, alone in the lead and on the way to the W:



That hurt like hell, but it was worth it!

CX race from this weekend... first one of the year for me.


Finish of a "hill climb" from Sept. with total gained of 6,000 in 24 miles. I was wiped.


btw, will NEVER put the camera on the helmet again. aside from looking dumb it gets heavy.
