Bicycle Racing - Cycle-Smart International Cyclocross Tournament
The Cycle-Smart Fantastical Tournament of Cyclocross Racing is HANDS DOWN my favorite race of the year.  I love the course, I love the town and I love making weird allusions to Jeremy Durrin’s penis. As an added bonus, it was DRY.  Which I also love.

DUDES! EVERYTHING IS FUCKING AWESOME. 5

DUDES!  EVERYTHING IS FUCKING AWESOME.
In 2006, I put on a cross race at UNH.  We thought it would be a good idea to do it on a field near campus.  We thought it would be awesome and everyone would have fun. HOWEVER, we did not take into account that most of the course was practically five feet below the ...

Sports Base Online Is Gone, So Is Your Money 4

SportsBase Online (SBO) issued a short statement apologizing to event promoters, but informing ...

SRAM SOCKS and NOR'EASTERS.
