A Great Big Hairy Clydesdale
and a Horse
There is apparently a big stink going down about Nat Ross taking a beer handup during the recent CX Vegas cyclocross race that was held as a centerpiece of Interbike. Some of the Powers What Be are upset at Mr. Ross for making a mockery of this most serious of cycling disciplines (giggle. snort). Some folks in the Boulder CO crowd are telling Mr. Ross they aren't going to use his race announcing services in retaliation. That kinda sucks - I think they are missing out on the levity and joy that surrounds cross. Shit, they sound like the kind of people who would pull riders who are on the lead lap for supposed 'safety' reasons - total killjoys. For supposed free spirits, a lot of these cycling folks are awfully frickin' uptight and puritannical.
Cankle Update - the Cankle is doing alright, there's some residual pain in the big toe and arch, but I'm at about 90% right now. With a little luck I'll be healed up by Saturday.
I'm considering hooking up with Trevor and John and trying to join the cross practice session that Harshman heads up on Wednesday night. I've heard it's pretty good and it might make a nice change from the usual. That, and I'd be able to sleep in until nearly 6:00 AM for a change...
