Travels to Cold Bike Races Pt 1

Posted by on 3/6/13 at 05:50pm

Last month Cameron and I traveled to Louisville Kentucky to attend the Cyclocross World Championships, which were taking place for the first time ever outside of Europe. It was an amazing and very cold time standing course-side in our muddy rubber boots watching the junior’s, women’s, and men’s races. The experience was great to be so close to the athletes; so close in fact that Sven Nys, the newly crowned men’s world champion, splashed mud on Cameron’s jacket. She will never wash it.   Click to Read More

So out went the st. augustine grass and in went the buffalo grass; Click to Read More
