Whether intentionally or not, the ChiCrossCup has helped us prepare for the potential sand show that Montrose can bring via PsiCross and Melas’s increasing volume of the stuff.  If the nice people at Spider Monkey Cycles and Ten27 Cycles decide to exact revenge for having to drill holes in the frozen ground simply to put the stakes down we’re in for way more of the same.  Which reminds me, give those folks some extra love out there in Chicago (and Norge this weekend).  Putting a race on in the conditions that can come up this time of year is tough!

This article includes a great description of the art of the sand crossing.  It’s difficult to put something like body English into words and once again Cyclocross Magazine comes through.

Enjoy the Holidays!
