Speramus Meliora; Resurget Cineribus

Inspired by suffering
She may not be the prettiest
Or the lightest weight
Or the most technologically advanced
Or even all that fast for that matter.
But then again, neither am I.

Keep your eyes out for this new old stock build coming to a cross event near you.

Who Cares? They’re Flying!!!

This past Sunday I had the privilege of watching the second day of Michigan’s only UCI Pro Cyclocross Race. I must admit, I was a bit taken back by the panache and finesse that is Jonathan Page. I regard local favorites such as Weinert, Card, Saari, Wissink, etc. as cyclocross gods. However, it is amazing to watch the level at which a world-class athlete such as Page is really at; you come realize how good, good really is. After witnessing first hand at close range the pain faces and suffering these riders subject themselves to, I couldn’t believe my price of admission was free as it was priceless in my eyes.

The race has inspired me to piece together my dilapidated rig that I call a cross bike and perhaps subject myself to some concentrated late season suffering.

Here are some of the highlights I put together…enjoy.
