    Damn, am I ever green-with-envy towards my friends who have started CX racing season.  I really want to do this next year.  This year I have no bike and the ankle I sprained back in June is not right, yet, anyhow.  Plus I am just starting training for a HM in early Dec., so biking is about to take a bit of a back-burner to running.  But next year...YES!

     

    Anyone else here do 'cross?

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      Up until 2 days ago I was ready to pop on a new Cyclocross bike. There are two races I'm looking at next year. One is a 2 day....330 mile race over the gravel roads here in Iowa.

       

      Anway...my thoughts were to also use this as my daily commuter. But at last.....plans have been put on hold because my daughter is capped out on student loans and it appears Mom and Dad are going to have fork over some moola.

        *sigh*  In our case it is car repairs that gets in the way of new bike purchases.  DH's car has apparently hit that milestone (130k miles) where a whole bunch of stuff is crappin' out.  I guess it beats a car payment, though.
