ANDY ASKED IF I WENT TO CX NATIONALS?
Heck no! That's way too hard for me. I tried it once and it was terrible. All the pain of XC MTB racing and none of the fun!
Have you ever tried it?
Yes... I'm a national champ.

Well, that shut me up. So nice ol' Andy is a CX National Champ. Who'd a guessed it? Nothing personal Andy, but... one, you're too nice to breathe fire like CX racers; two, you used to race Vision Quest a long painful slog across the Santa Anas the opposite of CX's all out pace for 30 minutes; three....
CX is wildly popular with a very wild crowd. It's 30-60 minutes of the most painful, relentless style of bike racing ever invented. On a road bike. And they hope for miserable conditions: rain? sleet? snow? BRING IT!
Check out NonDot Adventures a super fun race series in OC Parks.
What does that say about me?
That I've tried every kind of bicycle racing at least once, or twice.
That I know what I like,
I don't breathe fire,
I prefer fun.
It's fun to compete,
In the disciplines that fit my abilities
Ya gotta try all the flavors to know what you like.
