Well, I am tired of looking at the post below this one, as I am sure you have been too for the last two weeks. It hasn't been a lack of time this winter, more a lack of news. Overall not too much to report over here in snowmageddon, besides I have scored the first day of February off with a snow day today. The weather man was actually right as the storm came in around 12 last night, dumped off about 3 inches and got really cold so right when decision time came to close the schools, it was terrible out. Perfect, not as if it is nice out now, it just isn't the day after tomorrow. In Cyclocross News (what else is new), the UCI calendar came out for next year. This is the first year America's Nationals will take place in January FYI (if you have been living on another planet recently) So, the schedule in the U.S. has been moved around a good bit including the classic UCI3 Cincinnati weekend being pushed into the second week of November. Hopefully that means global warming won't takes it toll and push the races to 80°F+ like each of the last three years. My schedule is relatively limited as it is every year especially since this following fall/winter I want to acheive perfect attendance in my junior year of high school. So it is basically the same as last year, with a few more possibilites: the USGP weekend in Louisville and Nationals. The two other races I noted in red are races I'd really love to do, but it would depend on when the State Cyclocross race is, and how the lack of budget is affecting me. Nationals would obviously be the big goal of the year even though they are technically in 2012. This would mean anyone going to Nationals (and considering they are in Madison, everyone IS going) would really like a few local races in the final weeks of 2011 (can you say christmas weekend at Broadview) Just some thoughts.
