Tis the season for cross!

Spotted this image of Sven Nys in the CyclingNews‘ coverage of the third stop in the World Cup in the Netherlands. It just screams cyclocross. Nys, who has dominated the international cross racing scene for several years, seems more human this year, facing stiff competition from young rising Belgian Neils Albert and current world champ and Sunday’s winner Lars Boom of the Netherlands. And American Jonathan Page seems on better form this year, placing high in some midweek races, but hitting bad luck in the big races. He flatted and fell way back in the field.

And me, I can’t ride, let alone race as my hip pointer heals and my form flees. At least it sounds like my teammates had fun at the Urban IX cross race in C’Ville.
