I've been trying to update for quite awhile now. I think I'll have to just start with this past weekend and at some point go back to the other stuff from the past few months. I should have a ton of photos to share from Utah and Colorado.
I got the call a few weeks ago to help Chris Jones while in town this past weekend for the Cyclocross Grand Prix in Madison. It was a pleasure to work with Chris. A true professional and a good friend.
Working the cross race was fun since it was not the same old routine I'm used to. As far as cross races go it was pretty easy for a mechanic. Typical weather for cross is mud and cold but this past weekend was relatively nice. Saturday was dry and warm. It rained a bit just before the men's race on Sunday which changed the conditions a bit but it wasn't soupy.
Cyclocross News was interested in the Focus bikes.
Chris rides Focus for the cross season. Focus is starting to make in-roads to the U.S. market.

For my techy friends out there, can you detect a modification to the brake to achieve some toe in with the brake pads?
Here is a little taste of the past. Back in August (I think) I stopped for the night in Boulder, CO and stayed with friends. Although my stay was less than 24 hour, it's always nice to be able to visit Boulder and get a ride in.
If you look up "cool" in the dictionary you might find a picture of Erin Kummer. She ROCKS! As a plus there was enough room to drop the truck in her neighborhood which is sometimes hard to do when you want to crash with friends.
