I’ve Got Some Serious

16 Aug

How much serious? This much serious:

Enough serious about the upcoming cross season that not only did I sign up for and complete a cyclocross camp, seriously I did, but I also now have a skinsuit, a very limited edition, very serious skinsuit. Thanks to the fine folks at Revolution especially, one Mr. Stupidbike .

Can you think of anything so serious as skinsuits and cross camp? Didn’t think so, it’s next to impossible.

Not just any cross camp would qualify as serious but a camp put on by pretty much the best cross racer in the Western hemisphere Mr. Jeremy Powers.  You might be asking where JPow’s serious went in the following pic, I think it’s pretty obvious that I took it from him.

I’ve got the bike, I’ve got the skinsuit, I’ve got a few skills (including a super secret JPow hole shot move) but most importantly I’ve got some serious.

    I’ve ordered myself a skinsuit. But all I’ve got is a serious paunch.

    And you’ve got one serious crazy ass looking getup. The design on that skinsuit made me avert my eyes!

    OK, so I get the hole shot idea in MTB. But it seems as though in ‘cross you’d be moving fast enough that drafting would be of some benefit. Am I wrong about that? Do you really want to be on the front the whole time? Please help, cuz I’m kind of ignorant about this whole ‘cross business.

      Mark, you want the hole shot cause it’s badass to get the hole shot. I think some races even have preems for the hole shot getter.

    Brad, in that last photo you appear to have a smirk and appear to be fighting off a laugh or a smile. Definitely not serious in my eyes.

    You are hilarious! I mean, what you wrote, not how you look. Does CR come with Mr. Serious instructions?

    Okay, I busting out laughing at seeing the skinsuit photo. For CX, that’s spot-on. Good work. CR will definitely get noticed in the upper Midwest this fall season.
