Who Will Win CX World Championships?

Choose your rider NOW by clicking your favorite rider (or rather one of my few top picks) to the left in my first-ever blog poll.

If enough of you inform me that i failed to list certain favorites, then I'm happy to add them.

By the way, I just picked up a very old road bike today that i'll be converting to a fixed gear. It's funny how it's so incredibly easy to find old bikes perfect for converting to fixed gears since almost every single household in Belgium has at least one very old bike that they want to get rid of. Photos to come...I must first wash the bike since pros are never caught in possession of a dirty bike.

How did G get a "M"anderkitten t-shirt. Have you met G? Are you sure you want him to be your poster boy?

gewilli said...

Gary,
I got those fierce little iron on cat heads on my MDOT (dirty) orange jump suit... and I wear that Manderkitten T With PRIDE.

...bgw that Cymru Y Ddraig Goch is way more fierce than that silly pussy cat on the Belgium banner...

PEANUT said...

Yeah, I know GWilli. He's been part of the Vanderkitten Pit crew this year and thus hard earned the Tee. I must admit, though, that the Vanderkitten kitty heads on his gigantic orange body suit is the most hilariously endearing thing i've ever seen. You gotta see it to believe it.

...gewilli...me great, great grandpa on me mum's side was morgan morgans, the miller of flour in machynlleth, cymru yars ago...machynlleth was cymru's original capital...tis was afore ta brits made cardiff the capital for their own likin' & easy gettin' to, for stealin' ta taxes of ta workin' man...

...why i'm faking a bs accent i don't know...but i do know that old morgan morgans mill in town is set up as a working flour mill for the tourists (stop & have a cup of tea & watch the process) & his other mill outside town is now a beautifully gardened, scenic homestead...

...gotta agree w/ you on the flag...that is just an amazingly beautiful banner, proud & defiant...'cymru y draig goch'...is that simply, 'wales' dragon standard' ???...

...peanut, please excuse old home week, but gewilli, richard burton, the singer tom jones & myself are practically first cousins...hah !...

PEANUT said...

first cousins? I don't need to hum that tune from Deliverance...haha. I actually thought the comparisons were entertaining.

GCDavid said...

Oh, I can believe it.

Please tell us again what it is like doing a cross race. I've already forgot : (.

gewilli said...

...my dad's side is all from Blaenau Ffestiniog... but from the ministry side of things (vs the miners)

Dave Noisy said...

Aww..you're not on the poll, what's the point in voting??

I voted for my neighbor Wendy Simms. =)

I don't see any poll but my money is on Lars Boom, Niels Albert and Marilyne Salvetat.
