Charm City is coming up on Sunday. There are a few registration spots left. Come on out and join the fun. Even if you aren't racing, come and check out the scene. Charm City Cross is a total carnival, a great day of racing and cameraderie set in a beautiful urban park. It's one of the two or three showcase cross races of the year. You come to this race, you'll leave knowing what cross is all about.
The new Coppi cross/MTB/winter training kit is in. It looks spectacular. Well done, Giacomo! The rest of you people will see it on the road, mostly on the Sporca Azzuri.
Big announcement about Coppi / Tacchino Cross venue and details coming up later this week. Stay tuned.
And now, for no apparent reason, other than I think you'll find it weirdly fascinating, a Kafkaesque Gnarls Barkley remake of an awesome Violent Femmes song, Gone Daddy Gone.
Gnarls Barkley "Gone Daddy Gone"
If that little slice of Gnarls got you down... well, you need another dose of Gnarls to pick you right back up. Check this out and tell me if it's not the musical equivalent of Red Bull in Vodka - pick you up and make you feel good all over at the same time.
