Thursday Anticipation

We have reached February. That is very exciting. In part, because it means January is over and spring is just around the corner. But also because, short little month that it is, February is packed full of good times.

In order of appearance, here are some of the big events on the horizon.

1) Ice Bike

Always a good time, it goes down this Sunday. It's the 12th annual. Apparently, that means it's too old to make a poster. But you can find more info by visiting its tired old cousin, the MCA website.

2) Ice TT

The next race on the Snow Crits calendar will not actually be a snow crit. Rather it will be the Ice TT. This is the race that introduced Bill to the FGBC's Tuesday night shenanigans. That is all that needs to be said.

3) Sloth Cross

In just over a week, we will begin the 24 Hour Race and Film Festival otherwise known as Sloth Cross. We still have to finalize the course and the program. But you can count on it being awesome. Just like it always is.

4) Vicarious Cobbles

The 2009-10 FGBC CX Pool is winding down. It has been going on so long, one could be forgiven for thinking it was never going to end. But sad as it may be that the end is near, it is also good news. Because it means that the spring classics are coming up. With apologies to the Ground Tours, these are the sweetest road races in the world. It is also, in my opinion, the best of the FGBC cycling pools. It all starts on Feb. 27 with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Mike G destroyed the field last year. This year the results will count toward the 2010 FGBC - RRR FGD Challenge. More info coming soon.

Interesting observation. If we were to go with the poosher all the way here, we might end up with Slot Cross or perhaps Slut Cross rather Sloth Cross. Neither of those seems to make sense given the type of ethos we're going after here. So we'll leave the poster as a hybrid effort for now.

WV: focks

perhaps Winnie the *** could be the official mascot. Then we could go head to head with Disney.
