Krawatencross and ECOPOP talk update on CYCLOCROSS Magazine
This weekend was a week off from racing since Saturday's event was "too small" to support a womens event and Sunday's race was Superprestige which isnt particularly supportive of women - not yet. Instead Jonas and I joined our friends Ronny (pro mtb racer), and Tony (who has a mtb that weighs only 7kg) for a mountain bike cyclotourist tour. What a blast! They must have had at least 1000 riders show up to play in the snow and ice. For a good part of the tour we didnt even have to pedal as we'd just slide along on the ice.
On a side note, I ran into another cyclocross racer at the start - Nicole de Bie. I finally got to find out how she went from crap to superstar all in one season. Turns out she and her husband bought a house and they'd been working day and night on it, making her exhausted and giving her no time to train. But now that the house is done she is on fire. Maybe jonas and i need to do some major renovations on the house and time the project to end just before the next cross season begins.
My last official races of the season are this weekend. It'll be a bitter sweet time. But thanks to the Erwin Bolt Uit event the following saturday I wont have too get too emotional over the season end.
Thanks for reading!
