BRAC Annual Club Council Meeting: November 20, 2013

To get you in the mood for cyclocross, this photo of the day is from Denver, Colorado, where the snow is again falling softly outside. Most of us have big rides planned within 3 months, although beautiful and restful, this much snow makes me wonder how I will ever be in shape again by early June.
Heavy wet spring snow makes great snowmen. A happy sight in the neighborhood.
Related posts by Pedal Dancer: Colorado Cyclocross Championships, a fun look at the sport of cyclocross. Also a cool slideshow of pictures from the day at the race by Pedal Dancer®: slideshow (with dramatic music. Gotta have fun with this sport).

Update - September 2013:  I regret that I will not be volunteering my time every weekend to come out and photograph and write about the weekend cyclocross races in Colorado this year. I look forward to attending just a few, including the Gold races, the Boulder Cup races, and CX Nationals in Boulder in January 2014, to witness the excellent level of sportsmanship, skill, and competition. And hopefully - fun.
