I'll admit it, I was super spoiled by Hartford Nationals last year. We got to sleep in our own beds before the race and effectively zero logistical planning went into getting our bodies and our belongings to the venue. It was simple. Of course, that was an ideal scenario quite possibly never to be seen … Continue reading If Cyclocross Nationals Happens in the Desert, is it Cyclocross at all?
As I write, Gary is driving a van and trailer packed to the brim with all our gear all the way across the country for Nationals.

I assumed at least one person would return with a picture of well-composed oatmeal, especially since I've SEEN them … Continue reading What’s Cooking? OMG It’s August?!
