Vicarious Abundance

An appropriate theme for Thanksgiving. Going back to last Wednesday, we have had 10 races in 5 days--4 in the Fall Classics Pool and 6 in the Cyclocross Pool. With races in Cincinnati, Providence, Italy, France, and Belgium we've been an industrious bunch.

With only two races to go in the inaugural Fall Classics Pool, the Vicarious Cobra, Chris D, has snatched the lead from Ali. That is actually a bit creepy, as it coincides with the Real Cobra winning a real race. Ricco won the Coppa Sabatini. In any case, Ali now sits in second place and King Andy is just another 20 points back. It is still very close though. Just 135 points separate the top three spots. There are two races to go: the Giro del Piemonte and the Giro di Lombardi. The latter, being a monument, will be doling out extra points. It's still very much up for grabs.

Full results and standings here.

Over in the 2010-11 FGBC Cyclocross Pool, Jonny N, Gary, and Jonah continue to cruise along. They've occupied the top three spots for a while now. And while there is plenty of jostling around for position below them, they've established a sizable gap on the rest of the field. But the first World Cup race of the season is coming up next weekend. With bigger points on hand and some of the top racers left behind, that often changes things up a bit.

Just wait! The season isn't over yet.
