The past few days have gone quickly as the Vanderkitten CX team has settled in. The weekend's cyclocross races at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester were a blast, and now I'm totally itching to try cyclocross. Being a VanderkittenVIP has opened up so many new opportunities for me in such a short year -- first RAAM and now cyclocross! I love, love, love having Rebecca, Caro and Zane in the house. It's been ah-maaaa-zing.
The Rapha Super Cross Gloucester was... WOW. I don't think I'll ever look at Stage Fort Park the same way again. It was actually a little overwhelming to watch all of the races, (though I missed Shayne's early race as the girls didn't need to be up in Gloucester so early. It's a long day.) I saw and met riders I've only read about and admired but never met before, and that was kinda cool -- (Rebecca and Caro are my faves, though) -- and ran into a few friends while I was there, but missed a bunch, too. It was a lot to take in. Mostly I just chilled out and absorbed it all -- which means it will all hit me later like a shot of adrenaline. Ohmigosh, I need a cross bike!
Up next is the KMC Cyclo-Cross Festival in Providence this weekend. Yaaay! The fun continues!
