Season in Review

2009 plans are in full swing....Gravel Rouser,WCA Road, Joe Martin, WORS, Triple Crown, WCA CX, Cross....lots of options, lots, of training, new sponsors and the original sponsors who have been through the thick and thin. I thought I better recap 08, before moving on....

Many goals were accomplished, dreams fulfilled, and victories achieved. It started off a little slow though...the purchase of a new house in March of 08, didn't have me flying early in the season. Lots of flat tires didn't help the mental attitude. Midway through the mtb season I gave up on the dream and switched focus to another dream of cyclocross and competing in the motherland. I have been racing cross since 97, but many times on a mountain bike. I have always loved the short intense effort. So being mentally fresh at the beginning of cross season was huge. I traveled to MI for the double cross and landed my first UCI podium on the second day. From their things snowballed into an opportunity to race in Europe, a long time goal. With some forced rest in the middle of cross season I was fresh enough in Europe to have solid results and earn a spot on the WORLDS Team. This of course was the highlight of my season and I would love to go back and do it again with my gained experience.

I am so lucky to have the sponsors I do, and to have all the people who supported me with donations for my Euro Cross experience. I ended up spending about $1700 of my own money to make it 2X to Europe! Without everyone's support it would have been way more expensive and I would not have been able to do it....now I'll have it with me forever so thanks again for a great 2008 season! Looking forward to '09

Hey Brian,

Thanks for the link and letting people know about the video!

The site just went live about a week ago so spreading the word is a huge help! I hate the idea of people missing some of the grat stuff from Worlds just 'cause they don't know it's out there!

Hope you're enjoying some off season!
