I am officially nominating myself for tree kissing duty. I was out hitting the trails again on my cyclocross bike.

Rob Chamberlain, Jason Roon and I are tentatively discussing the Oct 22, or the Nov 2nd cross race up in GR.

With that in mind I pedalled out to Kleinstock to poach their minitrail system. I got my body working hard in the mud, trying dismounts and remounts at speed. Good fun. I even bunnyhopped a tree root or two.

This will be my first bike race. I am pretty excited, but as I posted earlier I am out of my element on land. And all falls hurt man!
