Good Article on SexyBank

Frankie in 2007

There was a good article about Team Sexy Bank's prospects in the coming season at Podium Cafe. Check it out. Although I do not agree that Jens F.A. Voigt is beginning to show his age!!! He is timeless!

Sorry Rina- I can't get to that vid link you emailed. Happy Turkey Day to all and to all a good night.

I want me a pair of those new Argyle socks!

I already have 2 pairs of the predominantly blue ones. If anyone is wondering what they should get me for xmas- these new argyle socks that Christian VdV is sporting would definitely be accepted. Not many shopping days left you know.

I want this car!

I wonder if it is full of jelly beans?

Gorilla Man

I Love this dude! He is at all the NE Cross races. I think his "drum"/5 gallon plastic bucket blew out this weekend though. I really do- I saw him scratching his head and looking at the holes in it. He is actually a heckler extraordinaire from nycross.com  The First vid is from Gloucester Day 2. Monkey Man is in a tree. In the 2nd he chases J-Pow up a hill. Look at Jeremy bunny hop those barriers!

Here's how short I am

Now I am 5'2". I realize that I am rather short, but geez I'm not a flippin' midget. Compared to Kona riders Barry Wicks and Ryan Trebon I am. 

Jesse Anthony Day 1 VS Day 2 Mercer Cup 2008

Above is a pic I took of Jesse at the end of the race on Saturday. Was white a good choice for him? I don't think so. He still rocks though.

Wearing all white on Saturday was a major fashion faux pas considering the 8 inches of mud he had to ride through. The pic above is from Yesterday. Guess he wised up. Jesse Rocks!

Totally true story: After my husband hosed off his bike and brought it back to the car; he was still picking gunk out of the derailleur. He pulled out a living worm. How cool is that?

Ding Dong Chicken Boy is Dead!

It's official. I saw this with my own eyes and took the picture with my own Sony Cybershot. Rasmussin will be pedaling sans one claw.....errrr....foot. If he is STILL ALIVE that is. 

Here's my theory: Emaciated Chicken Boy was at the Mercer Gran Prix of Cyclocross this past weekend. It was very cold and VERY muddy. I think that one of his claws got stuck in the mud and just cracked off. Then (there are a lot of dogs at 'Cross races, you see) a dog sniffed it out- dug it up, brought it down the patio for a quick snack. Apparently the dog found it to be unappetizing and left it in its present state.

Day 2 Mercer Cup Cat 4 Men

This is Tom Hopper. He is  mechanic for Slipstream Chipotle. He is also an awesome Cyclocross Rider and a very nice guy who didn't mind chatting after riding for 40 minutes in mud-wind-and cold. He is usually based in Girona and loves traveling with the team during the season. He's a real sweety.

Below is another lamo youtube. This time, being a dumbass, I deleted the vid, so it's just photos, but it gives you a feel for the course conditions. Terrible- or Great (depending on perspective)

Mercer Cup Men's UCI Elite 11-05-08

Yesterday was awesome. Got to see and meet all the big names up close an personal. It was muddy as hell, but at least the rain held off while we were there. The riders struggled. Except for Tim Johnson who has always said he thrives in mud. Anyhow, check out this lame youtube, and I am off to the races again.

VdV Photo Shoot at Garmin

See Helen, this is what you could be doing when you get out of Uni. Of course it will have to be in the off season because you'll be at all the Grand Tours during the season and will of course remember all of the little people who knew you before you became a big-time photographer.

Pirates Week Invitational Circuit

VdV wins the 1st annual Pirates Week Invitational Circuit!
Go Christian! I wonder what kind of shwag he gets? A parrot? An eye-patch? 
Maybe a bottle of rum? Yo Ho Ho!

Someone want to 'splain me something?

Someone want to tell me why Dan Martin (a fine young Irish lad after me own heart) had to wait in LINE to get his Best Young Rider's Jersey at the Tour of (Irish Haters) Portugal? I mean....just look at how ticked he looks as he waits in line with a bunch of stuck-up podium girls who are also in line to get their new bouquets. Either that or he's never been around so many hot chicks and he's thinking "ZOMG! Should I ask one for a date? But they're all like 6 inches taller and 20 lbs heavier than I am. Maybe I'll just stand here looking nonplussed.....but I really want that Jersey....and I really think the twins in the red mini-skirts would totally dis me if I started talking to them. And why is that black guy with the headset staring at me. Holy crap! I really need to talk to Allen Lim!"

disclaimer: the author in this blog has nothing against: the Portugese people, podium girls, twins, or black guys with headsets.

Putney Vermont Cyclocross 11-09-08 West Hill Shop

The funniest part is when the dude falls jumping the barriers in the beginning of the video. He is like a guru of Cyclocross. He creates all these "how-to" videos. Nice guy!

Overcoming #1

Good vid with all our boys; including Jens FA Voigt! The First Vid is 2006 the Second is 2007.

Hey Helen!

Hey Helen, Do you know this dude? He's from your neck of the woods. 

Amstel Andy and Carmen Miranda

Bananas is my business too, Carmen.

They have some weirdass podium girls down there.

 Is she sporting fruit on her head ala Carmen Miranda? Nice spot for a race though. At least they could hop in the ocean/pool/whatever and throw back a few cold ones when they were done.

Northhampton Cross 11-1 & 11-2

Well I have decided to add crappy video to my crappy photo montages. This one is from the VERGE Cycle Smart Cross Race in Northhampton, MA. Jon competed both days and did quite well. 

I however, need to learn to either ring the cowbell and yell OR record video with my Sony Cybershot. Both can not be done effectively at the same time. Enjoy- it was REALLY fun! Get out to a Cross race, girls. You will love it.

BTW- Jon is wearing the maillot jeune (kind of old and ratty) and you can hear me screaming at him when he goes by. The pic of me towards the end is with Daniel Cody. He is an Elite dude and is quite an awesome racer and fellow.

Sorry if you don't like Limp Bizkit- I just thought the Mission Impossible theme was appropriate.

Dave Millar Chucking his bike

Sansen- this one's for you.

Wouldn't it be nice?

JUST IN: Cadel Evans new ride for 2009

Cadel contracted this German Bike maker to build his custom ride for the 2009 season. Totally Awesome! 

Don't know how it will do in the mountains though, up or down.

I could be losing it

Do you guys think this kid looks like Andy Schleck? In person he really did.

I saw this kid at the Cross race today and I really thought he looked like Andy Schleck. His name is actually Peter Stetson. He came in 4th- he lost his chain after one of the run-ups. This is from Northhampton, MA Verge Cross Race.
