Mud, Snow, and Cyclocross

Was anybody else super excited to wake up and see the white blanket of snow covering the ground this morning? If Molly Hurford's recent (and very awesome) book is to be believed, mud, snow, and cyclocross are the three main ingredients in a recipe for grassroots sports that's taking North America by storm these days. So we should count ourselves very lucky that this weekend's big cyclocross party looks set to take place against the backdrop of these perfect conditions. Seriously! Molly wrote a whole book about it. How can you not be quivering with excitement?

And if that wasn't already enough, there will be three additional ingredients that will be added to take what is already awesome and make it even awesomer:

1) Costumes! Cousin Thomas's bear suit, the Cricket's fairy wings, and Lindsay's ode to the Great Pumpkin. These are the things that make for good great times.

2) Tunes! Every party needs good tunes. We are very excited that DJ Ryan and friends will be on hand to spin tunes for us.

3) Last but not least, Winnipeg's answer to the legendary Richard Fries will be there as well. Steve Scoles will be working his usual narrative magic to tie all the drama together just as the rug did for the Dude's living room.

If you are not already registered, stop everything and click on this link right now. You don't want to live with the regret you will feel for the next 12 months if you miss this one.

And if you haven't already done so, make sure to buy Molly's book and read it.
