Last night we had Shaun in the 4/5 scoring a fine 3rd place, and Dave in the 1/2/3, slotting 18th on the cool evening and the last Monday PIR of the season.
After tonight’s final PIR (which looks to leave 2010 all wet, which is how it greeted us) that’ll be all she wrote for our road program 2010. Then it will be time to unleash the Wolf of Portland. We’re not buying the Lion of Flanders stuff, or the tricolor, or the fries, (they’re fries….not fritjes. They’re fritjes when you’re in Belgium. You’re in Portland.) or learning bits of Flemish. Besides, as The Great DiStefano pointed out, the Dutch are the better ‘Cross riders anyhow.
So let loose the Wolf of Portland. Set your course for mud. And yes, we have a very special skinsuit debuting for you this year. If you liked (and by liked we mean cringed, and remember that was the point) last year’s creamsicle death mango suits, you’ll love these. And yes, we plan on carrying on the Hand Down with great regularity.
We’ll recap tonight’s race, then a short break, then we’ll be back with our regular barrage of updates, news, and photos.
For now, here’s a cute and cuddly.
