    Let’s see what can be squeezed out this morning ~

    boomage.jpgCycloCrush Worlds in … Italy?

    You’re right, it just sounds weird to have a mudbog-gruntfest of a bike race in the land that usually has more goo on hair than on tread. I don’t know much about the Treviso course other than it’s a fast hard circuit, but i reckon it’s prolly a storied and somewhat venerated venue.

    so, right on.

    Personally, I’m going to just put stock in who the Chance {{LINK}} pics as winner. I think it’s probably because Chance looks a bit like Boom … still, i’ll run with whoever that boy picks in the races.

    AND, it looks like Chance is going to have some video of the European Adventure up sometime after he gets back …

    can’t wait to see that.

    simmly.jpgI’d love to see that Wendy Simms {{LINK}} break onto the podium. She was quite all year long until this past month where she’s picked up back to back 5th places at the big races. She’ll get a decent start grid and may just be comfortable enough to ride to her potential. I’ve seen Simms at a lot of races now, (and, it’s obvious to anyone who has …) she will get faster.

    and i’m very interested to see how that uber-pedaler and National Champ Amy Dombroski {{LINK}} does. She’s about as tough a young woman as i’ve come across lately.

    dombrouchski.jpgI saw her picking herself up from a Vegas digger to start the season … and then, i read about her winning U-23’s on a hurt knee, and then lining up for Elite’s the next day, too.


    I’m also a big fan of that Driscoll kid racing in the U-23’s. I hope he gets a big chunk of medal at this year’s Worlds. My favorite pick of the kid this year has to be at Portland … in the freezing mud … there he is ~ no gloves.

    drisc.jpghe loves this shit.

    And yes, JonPage looks to be fully Euro-fied now as his cross season consists of … the Worlds.

    I think Jon has taken a Page out of a few Belgies who peak for the end of January and suffer through most the rest of the Cross season across the pond.

    … they let Nys win all those “non-important” races, i suppose …

    But the real American I want to see throw some turf in faces is the 9-ball, TimmyJ!

    Let’s hear it for a goof with some perspective on the scene. Johnson reminds me of the guy who joined a fraternity in college … but, only did it because he got sucked in … ‘cuz secretly … he’s an outsider, just like us.

      Looks like a nice uphill finish. Wellens hasn’t won a race all year and I think he is due.

      Yeah, Dombroski. I saw her at Portland and didn’t know what a youngster she is. She churns out some serious wattage. I’m a fan.

      I like Johnson. I hope he beats Page too. That guy seems like his head has just been getting bigger and bigger the last couple years. Go TJ!
