From the sidelines

10 comments = A new blog entry

plus I have a few pieces of eye candy from the UCI cross race in Hendersonville this past weekend. Watching cross makes me realize how much I miss racing it. Yea, when your out there your wondering why you would ever subject yourself to such a massacre, but there is a certain beauty to being on a cross bike and rippin through mud or layin a nice arc through a grassy corner. I miss it. trying to keep the eyes on the future though and get my knee healed up. It was still great to watch Clara, the LMC kids and a handful of others I hadn't been able to catch up with in a while.

Clara in cool down mode.
NC state champ John Hamblen put up a brave fight the first day.....
but was tag teamed by these two. they clearly ate their wheaties for breakfast.
the womens field stacked with cheerwiners.
sheedy got the award for most places gained from start to finish.
long sleeve skinsuit!!! oooo la la


Looks like Sheedy, Clara and myself are packing into the 4 runner and heading to MI for thanksgiving. a short trip but will nice to see the family before the whirlwind of training and racing begins.

turkey, chicken, duck, tofurkey??

I check in every other update. And I'm psyched to come ride with you guys and see what North Carolina is all about. BBQ? Hills? Old man winter can take a hike.

What's up Brent! This is Jed, your housing connect in Richmond, Va. We are treking up to R.I. this weekend and didn't know if you would be ridin' dirty with the rest of the cross guys.

Hi Jed,
Thanks for the shout. No cross nats for me this year. sad indeed. You'll have to do lots of yelling and cow belling for me. Have fun!
