This is cool. A Clydesdale category for cyclocross. Makes sense to me.

I'd go so far as to suggest a whole seperate race.

In the rare instance where I successfully complete a high speed dismount, well... let's just say there's a lot of momentum built up.

I fear for anything that might get in the way- small trees, barriers, 150lb cyclists....

My first real 'cross race is tomorrow. I'm stoked.

I'm soooo ready for this. But I don't have a cyclocross bike yet.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
