DID YOU GO TO NATIONALS?

TODD BROWN Bike Life


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.

... insert drop the mic image here...

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!

What does that say about Andy?
Not much... since he's a now a mountain bike race promoter.
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.
