My apologies fine lady.
Dear lady running on the bike path with headphones on, Although it may not have looked like it, when I came right at you two wheel drifting and back wheel smoking on pavement in the half dark tonight I was in complete control. I’m sure it was hard to tell but when I missed you by the width of a bee’s wiener there was in fact no way I was going to hit you and furthermore had the...

As is the fashion I am watching the ref as he lifts his whistle to his lips but hesitates at the last moment, turning to the official next to him and asking “Are you ready to go? Those close to the ref heard the whole question, those not so close just heard the last word, GO!! As 4 or 5 riders on right side near the front row sat...

We just rode and enjoyed the sport we love. Later today I went to my son’s...
If you are a rabid crosser there is the race you dream of. That perfect race with the perfect course, perfect conditions, perfect weather, perfect flow. We did that race today and it was, well, perfect. From the moist loamy earth to the gorgeous Dutch women, Bakel, Holland was better than your dreamiest dreams. We arrived under a sky of pillowy clouds to a nicely balanced course of woods, grass,...
