Our Field of Dreams

We, the Victor Velo crew, have the same attitude that Ray Kinsella had in a Field of Dreams: If you build it, they will come. We didn't have to order custom printed course tape, or rent a backhoe to make the lanes wider and cleaner, or hand paint the barriers, or have the bleachers moved to start/finish area, or even borrow a professional PA system. But we believe in doing things one way: PRO.

Suffering up the PRO-style run-up

A quick scan of various results from the weekend tells me that cross is growing in popularity:

1400 (not a type-o) raced the Cross Crusade in Portland

Utah Cyclocross Race #1 was a big success

And then there was a little race in Gloucester, MA.

Cross racing in Teton Valley is a no brainer. Our weather typically turns to crap around the first of October anyway so why not transition to a sport that embraces the rain and snow the way a Belgian cross fan embraces beer and frites?

We hope to see more cross converts out on the course in the coming weeks.

Yeah, when will you start serving the beer and frites?

Don't get me started on the ridiculous city ordinance banning alcohol in the park.

But I am working on the waffles. :)
