Coming to the rear of a CX4 race near you!

Yes, soon you will be able to marvel at my tremendous beer gut, lack of fitness, and complete lack of cyclocross skills at a race near you. Through a recent series of very complicated transactions I have acquired quite a hot Santa Cruz Stigmata cross bike.


Alpha Q CX20 fork to come and I'm done just in time for the charlotte race next week. Hoff crew should be representin' well!

This bike is complete overkill for me, on a racing level. Hell, I can't even ride in the drops comfortably because of my ginormous gut. But here in Asheville it'll be used more for mixed dirt/pavement riding and some singletrack as well.

Bonus points if you can name that water bottle cage.

So with my new job I have limited access to the internet (being I work for a credit union now) and everyday when I get off work I look forward to getting my daily dose of bike related internet surfing. In the past few weeks or maybe even the past month ive noticed a trend and i just wanted to share it and or get if off my chest.

Who gives a shit about Alberto Contador and his freaking contract? Who gives a a shit about next year's Tour route? Who gives a shit about next year's Giro route?

It's freaking cross season people! Now more than ever should there be homepages dominated by cross coverage. Not what random roadie is going to what random team and who is sponsoring who. Do these guys really not know how rad cross racing is? I mean seriously!

So now that's out of the way. In case you missed it last night, you serious need to check out Race across the Sky. Im not sure when it will be showing again but find out! Its totally worth it! Those kids are insane!

Look for the Hoffen kids in Augusta this weekend in the Georgia Cyclocross Series race #3. Should be a pretty good showing!

Lady Hoff down

Kelly, AKA my boo, has been down for the count all week with a non swine like cold that has her perpetually TKO'ed it seems. She is in good spirits though and made it to work today despite her weak state. I made her as comfortable as possible tonight with chocolate milk and Advil PM. Please send your get well Haiku's and let's hope for a speedy recovery.

Suck it Kyle

In all of your sticker collecting days you will never be able to compete with the one I just procured. Behold:

That's right... A sideways Richard sachs cross sticker.

In other news Joshua fixed my iPhone blogging capability so expect lots more useless drivel from me.
