MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES FOR NOT HAVING ONE BIT OF VIDEO OR PICTURES FROM YESTERDAY'S CULT CROSS FINAL, I WAS TOO BUSY WORKING IT AND RACING TO GET THE MEDIA SIDE COVERED. HOWEVER, BRIAN PATRICK FROM ONSIGHT MEDIA WILL HAVE AN ABSOLUTE BOMB OF A CULT CROSS SHOW COMING UP ON RSN IN APRIL, TAPE IT, TIVO IT, WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO.

YESTERDAY WAS A GREAT DAY FOR CULT CROSS AND CYCLOCROSS IN GENERAL. THE RANTS AND RAVES ABOUT THE COURSE INSPIRED THIS POST AND I SAW IT FIT THAT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PARTCIPATED, YOU CAN COME HERE, RIGHT TO THIS BLOG POST, TO CHECK OUT THE PICS OF SOME OF THE COURSE HIGHLIGHTS. THE CULT CROSS GRAN FINAL WAS ALL ABOUT THE DIRT, ROCKS AND GRASS YOU RACED ON. THESE PICTURES CAN NEVER CAPTURE THE SOUL AND HARD FAUGHT EFFORTS YOU ALL LEFT OUT THERE AT THE EAGLE FAIRGROUNDS YESTERDAY, BUT, IF YOU WERE THERE, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A PIECE OF YOU OUT THERE ON THAT GRASS FIELD. ENJOY THESE PICTURES, TALK ABOUT THEM AND REMEMBER THE PEOPLE AND THE PARTY. WHEN YOU TRY TO EXPLAIN TO YOUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN SOME DAY ABOUT THE "TRUTH OR DARE" BRIDGE OR THE "AIR OR SCARE" BARRIER...ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CLICK TO THIS POST, FOR ETERNITY, AND THESE PICS WILL BE HERE TO TALK AND LAUGH ABOUT. CHEERS TO THE SOULS OF CYCLOCROSS, CHEERS TO THE FANS AND RACERS WHO SUPPORTED THE CAUSE...I POP A "TEN FIDY" FOR YOU!
IM ELGEE, ADDICTED TO BICYCLES...AND I'M OUT!
