8.Keep the gravel shit for spring..lets not kill this scene as well by too many double events
9.consistent payouts at every race

everything acts like a mirror



Grunge killed  Metal
then it Killed Itself

Gravel Growlers killed Cyclocross
then


Gravel Growlers kills itself

Still shaking my head over the weekend of October 22-23
Man what is wrong with the race promoters in this state id throw some of them a bone if they are new to scene but fuck..really we all know that aint the truth....im gonna through the promoters of the Fall Fury two day cross gig under the moving bus first..and after that carnage is massaged into the pavement,,Id take whoever is in charge of picking dates for the Waterloo GG and find the nearest Kenworth and toss em under it..come on folks..serous fuckinly..As if the scene isnt ailing enough..now we gotta do dumb shit like this..What..there is no cross pollination between crosser and gravel hounds?..like one scener said i guess they like low turnouts...the scene will continue to circle the turd soup bowl as long as the race promoters keep doing fucked up shit like this...

I can see why alot of cyclist/racers hold a certain animosity to certain promoters...

sad





rainbows are coming

1.Johnny U
is this fall that this guy actually speaks to people without slightly insulting them? can he take down Burke and Yankus with his west coast attitude...

2.John Leach
Hands down still the best kit on the line..not really sure what Bissell saw in his potential  not a poor rider by no means but not quite the usual Bissell pick up..and i gotta ask this with the Nazi like officials that were rumored to be there...why is his front wheel over the line without a wrist slap or quick choke hold?

3.Jgoode
 every year it gets alittle harder for the big man said it before he puts probably he puts out  some mean numbers for the fella his size but with fast guys coming to cross from the  road or older Elites racin down makes his life harder on the grass..

4.JB
Blown away this guy still shows up here and there one of the originals..despite his results his kit is kinda sweet

5.Eric Mcbride
This guy could be pretty good...I woulda left the Alma jersey at home hanging in the trophy case though

6.Brandon Goocher
this is that kid that used be the only kid under 10 racing cross..feeling old yet? Ill say this at least never thought T would see him racing the elite field...its tough up there hope he sticks it out for awhile

7.Simon Bailey
I like this guy alot but i still can not believe he is still at it..having been there since the start and through all the huge days to now...he must really love cross..or just hates football Sundays

8.Brian Walcharz
 all around this guy is pretty solid.. cant say he has the best head for racing tactics but fuck it right? a wins a win..

9.Tim Sorry
I like how he is hiding kinda in the back row touting his State Championship jersey ever so sly..Tim was and is still a pretty solid dude all around

 its a shame the That Elite title eluded him when he was in his prime..


10.some other Jacks guy...
who is this kid..? rumor also had it he raced the 4/5 race as well as the Elite race? make matters worse he was on some big ass full suspension bike...i dunno what to think about all that..


Miscene elite cross and how it is now..
