*CROSS SERIES. Yes, there is a 2009 CENTRAL IOWA CROSS SERIES. 8 races. 6 in the metro. 2 within 40 minutes of the metro. There will be overall prizes, leaders jerseys, great competition, consistent classes and more fun than you can shake a stick at. I promise. We have an unreal group of promoters with a common bond. That is to GROW the sport…….If you add the STATE cross race (not part of the series), you will have NINE (!!!) cross races in and around the metro. How rad is that???
*CROSS WEBSITE. You got it. Next week Mr. Scott Sumpter (of BIKEIOWA.com fame) will unveil a cross website. Blog updates. Race calendar. Race flyers. Results. Series information. Series results. Renegade info. Anything you could ever want or need on an awesome one-stop-shop.

A couple other races lasting into 2010, but not on calendar. KC is a couple hour drive and STL is 3 1/2hr so I tend to stick to the west side of the state (better racing also). I plan to race primarily Cat III and a handful of Masters (that's right Crusty, there is someone older than you...).
Looking forward to packing away the kits to the right and busting out the pink, orange, and green this year!

But fearless coach Crusty, he of many excuses already, is trying to keep me on track for at least a little affirmation during the cross season. So I did my workout, rode home, and looked at the map of the roads I used to ride for hours hp here.
After the accident, finishing will be goal #1 at the first cross races.
But for now, it's all about the spirit of cross, having more fun than legally allowed on two wheels. Season starts in how many days, Mike?
By the way, when I rode this morning, it felt chilly, like fall was coming. All I could think: cross is coming, cross is coming...
