Crossbones Style: Eric's Mad Skillz

(Yeah, I know it's a Catpower song, but I couldn't think of a good title with "cross" in it. I remember seeing them play 10 years ago and asking drunken hipsters, "Do you know when Elfpower starts playing? I drove like 14 hours for this show!" over and over. This was before the hipsters discovered the track bike and ironic facial hair)

A few brief notes. Ian Foyster remembrance tip #3: Tuneless, loud singing while walking around your office. A current single from BBC or Virgin satellite radio is preferable. Speaking of Ian (as we shall be doing for perpetuity) local gadfly Toby Porter has hinted at a New Year's Day ride in honor of the Londoner. Probably be 2 to 3 hours, dirt roads, no traffic and a small entry fee which would go to Haley's college fund. This is a developing story so stay tuned...

Eric Smith, Cane Creek wage slave and Hawley castaway gives the cyclocross crowd a sneak peek at the pain train he's bringing to Charlotte this Saturday. That's right Billy Fehr, THIS SATURDAY!

I have prior heckling commitments in Wilmingtoon NC for the Beach to Battle Ship Iron Man Triathlon(did I spell it right?). I will be taking pictures of an athlete/friend of mine and laughing at the energy crisis. Thanks for the heads up. FYI the course at Veteran's Park is wedged in between both Stay Alive approach options that I ride every day. Look out for the Army's Full Metal Jacket on the hill, they will be watchng you. Intel: There will be some steepness you are not expecting, let Eric know. Also, the Common Market Deli[aka: Le Rue de Grit](best deli in the Jar) is a mile from the course, it has tasty beers and the feel of Brooklyn NYC-Check it. Good luck and Venga, Venga, Venga!

Note to self. When Kyle gives me cross advise about loosening the tension on my pedals, take it.
