USGP 'cross

I decided over the weekend that I want to become a ride whore. I don't actually have the time to be a mileage whore, which is the preferred means of expressing a cycling obsession. Instead, I'm going to try and ride as many days as I can, whether it be a century or a 2m coffee run. Just Ride! After getting back from a soccer tourney in Evansville I hopped on the Sogn and went down to the USGP Derby City Cup, where I met up with Timothy and later Patrick. We roamed around and took in as many of the hot spots that we could. I took a lot of pictures, most of which suck, but that's alright. It was fun and a teeny bit motivating, seeing all those fit bodies out there. Below are a few images. Enjoy!

Canadian Emily Batty is a very talented rider.


Old man Tim Johnson leads through first sand run on first lap. I think he finished 4th.

Lot's like a great time. I haven't been to a cyclocross race in TOO LONG.

For me, it's not about mileage, it's about hours. That said, I would like those hours distributed across a goodly number of days...
