There is a different kinda race being run out there!

“I’m a pop enigma. I live and breathe every element in life. I rock a bespoke suit and I go to Harold’s for fried chicken. It’s all these things at once, because, as a tastemaker, I find the best of everything. There’s certain things that black people are the best at and certain things that white people are the best at. Whatever we as black people are the best at, I’m a go get that. Like, on Christmas I don’t want any food that tastes white. And when I go to purchase a house, I don’t want my credit to look black."

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

Christmas past, present and future...

Christmas Past. It seems every year around this time my thought are still sent on the passing Cyclocross season and what its going to be like next year. All so running through my head are the thoughts of regaining my place on the podium at Xterra National races. But this year is a little different. I have a plan and some big goals. The last time i had a goals like this i had a wonderful season, and hope to return to that this year. So here is my Christmas wish list.

Win Duathlon nationals in Richmond Va.
Win Xterra Richmond.
Finish top 10 at one Norba XC and STXC
Top 3 At Tahoe Xterra
Top 3 At Maui Xterra Wolrds
Top 10 overall at USGP of Cross
Top 8 at Nationals
Trip to race cross with Euro Cross Camp 6

I know there are lots of people that think i cant do it, but i'm finding more and more that your out numbered by the ones who think i can.

Here are a few shot from cross seasons past. starting with 2001,2002,2004,2005,2007...

Chirstmas cross

I cant wait to see results from the next two weeks worth of Euro races. I know that Ryan, Tim, and Jpows are all going to kill it. The level of US cross has come up so much in the last 3 years. I just hope we can start to make bigger waves in Euroland.

In other notes, next season will see me return to my roots. That is a bit of everything. I have a bunch of big time MTB races on tap. As well ass Duathlon Nationals, US Xterra's and Cross. Only this year i have started a team, that should give me the support i will need for such and undertaking. In Jan i'm moving to Sand Diego with Lindsey's blessing. This will be super key! I have not put a solid base down since 2003 when i was in Clarmont Fl. Also It looks like the team will be all sorted with BMC and Sram goodies. Can't tell you how badly i want new bikes right now. This Cross season was such a fuck-up. i even missed Xterra Nationals just to stand around at Interbike with people who ether didnt know or could tell if they were really at all interested with Bikes or not. You dont get into bikes to make money you get into bike because they get into you. Its not a part time gig. I cant wait to dawn a short sleeve jersey and go for runs on the coast. Maybe catch some waves, and do a little swimming.

Till then i'm stuck in the cold waiting for Lindsey to get back from WA.


This past summer in New Haven with Will and Dom who will both be teammates this year.

I still cant get over what happend to Ryan at Nationals. I'm with Geoff Proctor in saying that they need to have differnet course for the Elite race and the Amature races. I would also like to say at this point that the mens elite field need to be limited. There should never be more then 60 pro men at the National Championship. Hell they could have a B nationals, I think that would be great idea. They split the field in the pro short track at sea otter why not cross nat's. That way instead of having guys who are going to fight to stay within two laps of the leaders riding off a over worked course and into favorites. You give the Pro men the respect they deserve, and you get one of the greatest shows on two wheels. The elites need to be treated that way. So i would like to say best of luck to Ryan and a speedy recovery to Steve. Next year i hope they have things sorted out. To those of you who say
Ryan would not have won the race. There are lots of you out there on you tube. I say fuck off ryan is a talent and if you look close ryan was in forth still in front of Timmy.
