Riding Bikes in The Snow - A Nationals Preview

Saturday's Crossaflixion Cyclocross race in Bend was fabulous.... A winter wonderland, explored on two wheels. 

Skinny tires navigating over snow and ice covered terrain.
Being lapped by Adam Craig, but not before he offered up some cornering advice as he scooted around me on an tight, icy corner.
Snow flakes in my eyes instead of mud and muck.
Familiar faces lining the course.
A short car ride home.

Nationals will be held here in 10 days.  The snow doesn't seem to be letting up.  Get ready to toebrocate; you are going to need it.
