me = ready

... to give the cross bikes some dirty lovin'.

so, so, so wanting September to roll around so i can jump into that wicked little sport. me wantee the action, the grime, the squeals and butt clenchings.

the hops, the grunts, the obstacles.

the pure fun, the drunkin delights, the mad cat-calls, and gongs of glee, baby.

.

~ bring on the good stuff ~

All this talk about SeaSlotter has me fantasizing about the free-wheeling joys of dirt riding ... and yes, dirt racing. I have to admit, road racing can sometimes get a wee bit snore-arific, you dig? And, even the crits can, at times, become a lil' bit predictable.

But the cross?

... achtung my lovelies ~

the concentration is a razor's edge,
the skillz must be full-tilt 24/7,
the efforts are straight up other-worldy.

And, the vibe is so ... bellarific.

the vibe, baby ~ the vibe.

it was just a few months ago (during cross season) that you were just drooling for a crit...

but you read my mind on this one

i actually tried to check the calendar to see when the first cross race was

but it's not posted yet

Velo Bella said...

its true....something about if there were a road race within 600 miles or something....

PAB said...

Yeah, yeah, a oupl weekends of no racing and you will be re-energized for the road.

Or else there's gonna be trouble...

oh, and if you think crits can be predictable, please read my latest post.

I think oV should come out and do D-ville on his CX bike...

PAB said...

I think I'm gonna kidnap and hide Ov's cross bike...

Velo Bella said...

I've got plenty he could use.
and mountain bikes too.

I am a bad influence.

PAB said...

one word for you, VB

Velojuice said...

I love it OV, cross is the cat's meow! And all that. I live to cross and cross to live! Bring it!

this weekend, some buddies and i said: "screw the rain. let's grab the cx bikes and go climb mt. tam in the dirt." whoever's idea it was, it was the best one i'd heard in a while. mud and rain and hell with intervals and heart rates. cx-tastic!

Miss Mary said...

i'm with vj on cx, it's what i look forward to the rest of the year

Josh and Barb said...

Man, I can really relate. I've got some unfinished business on the road at this point, but not a day goes by that I don't think about the upcoming cross season... I can't friggin wait. -j

Hick said...

I read this earlier and decided not to take the race bike out in the rain.

CX bike got off the hook and out into the wet stuff for some fun.

Excellant postage.

WHAT ABOUT THE TRACK!!!! to hell with all them other types of riding, the TRACK IS KING!!! ;)

Miss Mary said...

skib, i think you're the lone voice on this post

but i do need to get out to the track once and for all

Benjaminiac said...

i usually wait until july or so to start fiending for CX. no wonder you always come out swinging.

i suggest a self-imposed ban. three weeks. then see how you feel, i guarantee you'll want to race ye-olde-crit more then anything.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

what i really want,
is to do a long-ass stage race.

the drama,
the epic,
the eating 6000 calories each night!

ah well.

it's 2 weeks of no racey-racey for me ... first time in a long time. I may only get 80 races in this year, gasp!

[all-ready feelin' better, by the way ... sickness + moved + new job = tired hernando]

X Bunny said...

2 weeks with no racing is really like 3 weeks between races

i'm sure you'll feel better everday up to a point and then you'll start to break out with hives, unable to wait until the next race....

PAB said...

i have a prediction, of course...

and I'm keepin it to myself, of course...

X Bunny said...

you may be keeping it to yourself as far as this blog goes

You need to race the downieville classic if you want to keep your "attention".
