Cross Nats coming up quick

Cross Nationals is going to be crazy. The snow is predicted to keep falling. The course is already a mess.

The men's elite race is going to be interesting. Defending champ Trebon is the favorite, but anything can happen in snowy conditions. Wells and Johnson are excellent on technical courses. Johnson hasn't looked as good in his last couple races, but he's always a favorite. Jonathan Page is a threat. He hasn't had his best season, but he's one to watch. Also, J. Powers will be up there. He doesn't like the snow as much, but he's got power up the wazooo. My pick is Todd Wells. He won in 2004 in similar conditions. He's been racing well, and I think he's peaking for this race. He'll edge out Trebon who will finish second. Page will be third, Johnson fourth, and Wicks fifth.

The U23's will be taken by Driscoll. He is unstoppable on the technical stuff. Selander will be second and Summerhill third. In the ladies, Katie will defend her title, but it won't be easy. Gould will be all over her from start to finish. Katrina Nash will get third. The juniors will be taken by Steve Fisher. He's a crosser on the rise, watch out!

And in my favorite category the collegiate's it will be a battle between Fort Lewis and Lee Mcrea. Also, watch out for UV. I'm going with my dog Chris Perrish from Western WA. He had good results at mtb nationals, and is a rider for the future. If Driscoll races for UV he'll win, but I don't know if he's still in school. Watch out for Perrish. He's pictured above...

Props

Props to B. Ferencz for the sick cross movie last Tuesday. Some of those dudes can do crazy stuff. It makes me want to get a fixie and rally. To bad there was three inches of snow when I woke up today. I put up the youtube preview. Check it out if you didn't see the movie.


Props to yesterday's cross race in Rhode Island. It looked like a great event. Cyclofile will put out a video soon. Powers barely got by Todd Wells who was hopping barriers all race long. Check out the photos on Velonews. Also, Jamey Driscoll continues to creep up. He is a consistent rider and a star of the future.

Props to Club Passion's party on Friday. The fellas don't always come through on the parties but Friday's was a gem. Dale, Halp, Pitbull, Huge Daniels, and the gang came up with an excellent array of decorations and beverages. Thanks for the good time.

Props to Lolo Pass. I can't get enough of that place right now. The snow has been crappy, and Ive still been having a blast. Above is what it looks like right now.
