Hank's OVCX Journal

While y'all are having a wonderful training day down in sunny FL, I'll be cold and wet and pinning it (hopefully) in Louisville, KY. The forecast says rain, and you know the rest. I raced well at Champions Park when I was there for the USGP back in October, so hopefully I can have a good race tomorrow. The course should be different, but the terrain will be similar; except for the muck! At least I hope!

It might work out that I can get down there to Dade City on the 14th. If so, I'll be bringing the heat, or lack there of. I'll post my result tomorrow after the race. Send your good vibes my way, I'm gonna need em'. 

Florida Cyclocross '08 Race #1 &2

The Tallahassee races were this past weekend and our roving reporter, who is the news, was there to capture it. Here's the link to Adam's bike blog
There's some photos to show how the course was laid out.

One day to go!

Most of the country is wrapping up their seasons now, but we're just hours away from the first race. Tally here we come!

The New York Times' obligatory annual cyclocross story

Every year, in that dark news chasm that exists between Election Day and Christmas, it seems the Times rediscovers cyclocross. Seems this year is no different.

Hank's OVCX Journal

This weekend I went with my trusted driver/ mechanic/ frame builder/ blogger KT, to the OVCX race in Dayton ,OH. It sucked! Or at least the race did. KT just received his super miniature tiny MSI notebook, on which he downloaded a bunch of cross videos from Nathan Spear

So even though I finished 15th, I felt like a winner thanks to some exciting GVA Trofee and World cup races. Oh yeah, now I need a euro mullet like Niels Albert.

Tallahassee cyclocross details

The organizers have the race's Web site up and running, so head on over and check it out. You can also download the race flyer here [.pdf].

They're promising two courses for the two separate races and a Saturday night party. The course should be brutal. After all, Tally ain't flat!

Stay tuned for more!

PSA: Wear Gloves!

Looking cool is over-rated. I usually don't wear gloves when the
weather is warm, but alas, that we never- ever be the case again.
These mangled hands took me to a 3rd place finish on Saturday at Uncle
and an 8th place finish on Sunday at the Gun Club. If only I'd
been able to grab the bars. Who knew?
