Last International Race of the Season Complete...with PARTIES

Last Sunday was my last big "official" race of the season. It was GVA Trofee's Oostmalle event.  The course was lots of fun - very mountain bike-style, the crowds were incredible and the aprés-race parties a blast!!!

I wrote all about it on the CYCLOCROSS Magazine website that was just posted today. Click HERE to read it. There are also a million photos to see as well.

Tomorrow is my last big "unofficial" race. It is called Cyclo Cross Masters - an indoor cyclocross race. Even though it is not internationally ranked, i am fairly certain it will be the hardest! Only twelve gals were invited - and most of them ranked in the top ten internationally. But as for the course, I just saw a video of it and it's like no other!! Click HERE to see all the crazy jumping ramps, sand pits and stuff.

Photo of Jonas, my new official photographer, was taken by Marc Van Est, the one of me holding the incriminating evidence as well as the top photo the was taken by Francois Buyssens.  The last was by Dirk Verhelst.

Hey your new official photographer is pretty good, no?

Great shot of you at the back of your van! Nice to see you sans helmet and glasses!!!

Indoor cross, crazy! But I'll bet it's a blast for spectators?

Pretty intense course.
Good luck.

Wish I could have been there. In spirit I am. Think of you often. Looking forward to next season. Go for it! ONE more Time!

BTW, I'll be riding my bike to work most days now as I am working @ UCSF doing all pediatrics now.

K-1 Fiancee visa filed for Ela! I am excited.
