Let the Cow Bells Begin to Ring

It has finally arrived. The 2008 Cyclocross season begins this weekend for me over in Hermann, MO. On tap are 20 races (actually more with doubling up at some events). For the De Stad series I will race in the Single Speed class and try and defend my 2007 series championship. At other events I will either race Cat 1/2/3 or Masters 35+ (or both :-))

This is the best shape for cyclocross season I have been in since 2001. Feeling really fresh and ready for the Pure Sweet Hell that is about to begin and the sweet sounds of cow bells a ringing.

So what is your explanation for being the best shape for cross season since 2001?

I have been following a secret training program. Not allowed to divulge any more info than that.

We'll let your performance speak for your training/trainer. But I'd say that the fact that you're not whining about how old you are/feel says that your trainer is doing something right. ;-)
