Is It October Yet?

Something strange happend to me this week.

I woke up Monday morning with a mad case of ‘cross fever.

I must have caught it somewhere along the Crusher route, surrounded by so many ‘cross bikes. Which is a little strange, considering that I had gone a little cold on ‘cross (or at least my ‘cross bike) after deciding to ride a mountain bike in the Crusher. Nevertheless, the fever persists.

It can’t help that I’ve been watching cyclocross videos all week. And they are only amplifying the intensity of my strange condition.

Videos like this:


Oh boy. Now you’ve got the fever too don’t you?

That’s OK. There’s a lot more amazing video footage where that came from.

Is it October yet?


Well. Fine. Lucky for me, I do know the cure for ‘cross fever: Singletrack. And ’round these parts… it’s easy to find.

    Thats pretty funny, because I have been thinking of it as well. Not sure if it is just the fact that I think I may run the CX next year at the crusher or not.

    you need to see someone to have that fever fixed, there’s no reason to be thinking of cx yet. Give it a few months, then you’ll be ready. Until then, the trails are too good to be concerned with other things than mtb :)…
