I raced there but did not have an Irish Coffee.

Leaves fall to make way for winter snows with the re-birth of green to follow. These changes happen whether or not we notice. For this reason, stop and assess, so you may change accordingly. Ride fast thru fallen leaves.

Dust Collection

"I am not on my road bike during cross season" Marianne Vos, so the de Rosa will get a rest and much needed makeover.

The Syndicate

As we have begun in earnest the CO 'cross season, I am overwhelmed with the prospect of getting to race the whole season. The routine is in place as workouts are specific to increasing speed and suffering. I have been easing into the race scene as I prepare for a solid weekend in Frisco.
Remember to apply sunscreen, the sun still shines in the fall.

Big Red Country

Prior to the invasion of Texas into the once quiet Big 8, my only impression on Lincoln was that of the whipping they gave ISU every year and that of my home town neighbors fervor. As time passes and new friends are made, those scoreboard images and the sea of red have been replaced with the color gravel. Hence, 14 hours in the car (without Ipod) made for intraspection while listening to songs like "Rocking the Beer Gut" and "Fat Bottom Girls." Throw in 13 hours of riding gravel with over 9000 ft of climbing, Lincoln nite life, and some couch surfing (thanks loads, Cornbread!). I came back to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a vision for 2010. Vive Gravetes!

I find myself in a perpetual spiral into the abyss of autumn while the rest of blogdom keeps typing away. The future holds more details. Stay tuned, I hope to be back soon.
