Here it is, April 30, and I’m already thinking about cyclocross season.

Yes, the ski resorts are mostly closed, the weather is warming up, and all I can think about is when it’s going to get cold again, when it’s going to snow again, and when I can go out and play in the mud (on skinny tires!).

Makes me wonder why there isn’t a Spring Cyclocross Series to give people an alternative to the Intermountain Cup and the UCA road season.

Maybe I’m thinking this way because I’ve barely been out on the bike yet this spring. So far I think I’ve got about 100 miles under my rapidly expanding bibshorts …

At least when I’m doing ‘cross, I’m having fun while suffering.
