Cyclocross eBay auction - wow. just wow.

Not mine - sent out on my team listserv...

My loss is your gain. I am selling everything I own that involves cyclocross. I had the car packed and was headed to Bend for cyclocross nationals. The weather report and course conditions sounded brutal. I searched deep into my soul, and I have become too soft to finish my 2009 CX season. This sport has broken my heart and crushed my dreams for possibly the last time. Everything must go. Everything is included. If you win this auction you will have everything you will ever need to race cyclocross, and look like a complete pro. I have decided that I enjoy buying cyclocross stuff more than racing it. So do me a favor and buy it all. Unfortunately for me I will probably buy most of it back piece by piece on Ebay later this summer when my mental stability and optimism return. My motivation is high.... my spirits are low. Everthing listed below is real and is yours if you BID.

That's f'ing awesome.

This is priceless:

"The last items I am including are a National Champion Skin-suit and a bottle of Champagne. I stole the national champion skin-suit from my wife. Sometimes when no one is home I drink a few beers, lower the lights, and gently slip on her skin-suit and stare in the mirror for hours just to feel special. Just pull on the skin-suit and walk around the cyclocross venue in BEND drinking large gulps of cheap Champagne. I promise by the time you finish the entire bottle you will feel like a winner and probably convince yourself to come back next year and race again. Most of the spectators will congratulate you like you’re Katie Compton or Ryan Trebon."

That is really funny, anyone know who that is? I'm pretty sure they changed the rules now to where you have to be on a UCI team to enter the pro event. It used to be all you needed was the license. It was nice to at least say, "good job man!" as Trebon blasted past you on the lap

I saw that show up in my search for CX bikes and passed it around to all my cyclist friends.
Good sense of humor.
