An off week with no cyclocross racing locally was a welcomed break. I think that even if there was an event, I probably wouldn't have participated. A person can only get their butt kicked so many times before they call it quits.
The few rounds of the MORE series have been fun this year. Christopher got on the box today but we had to leave early to get home so we could work. The courses are a little harder than the Forward Motion series for the most part and Christopher seems to do better on these courses. I need a lot of practice on the rocky technical courses especially when they are wet. Slick rocks are not my forte' but one day they will be.
This past weekends break from cyclocross has been nice. It has really made me question my desires. I know for one thing I do not enjoy getting my butt kicked in cyclocross. I thought my form would improve over the past month but it has actually regressed. Maybe over training? It could be the excess wight that I am carrying and the hilly courses that have been used. There are some flatter courses coming up in November so maybe there is hope for me.

Carolynn and I were out snapping some action photos from today's Joules Cyclocross event in Lawrence, KS. The below album is from Saturday's Men's Masters 40+, 50+, 60+, 65+, Men's Cat 4/5 and Single Speed.

A review of my last two races starting with the 360 Cup two weeks ago.
Robidox Roundup Cyclocross in Saint Joesph, MO. What a breath of fresh air. The course was awesome and even had some short single track sections. Christopher really liked the course.
So far my season has been very unsuccessful. Basically I am just Pack Fodder right now and I have to live with it. I kind of feel like the Alaskan Pack Fodder.

He won so many that the Kansas City Star even wrote an article on him. Those were the days....
This guy had an awesome handmade bike and he could ride that thing on that Riverside course. I do miss those old courses and the cool features they had.
Part II coming soon....
