Cyclocross!! I guess that is some form of pretending it's not over? It's like the last hour of a minor one day race: very exciting, almost no boring moments.
Go to this forum (during the season I never have the time), I even visited the Clinic yesterday.
I also check results of oversea races like Tahu/Colombia more oftenas long as I recognise some names or teams, so Beijing is in that categorie.

I'll be writing my thesis this winter. Yay!

Actually, it'll be fun, if stressful. James Joyce, colonialism, and the Celtic Revival. What more does a cycling fan need between now and March?

Oh and my buddies are way into American football. I suppose I'll drink too much on Sundays and watch some of that. Training like Ulle.

Now I'm off to vote in polls...

A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Voted for the Clinic.

I actually forget going to the Professional road racing section most of the time last weeks.

It's always good the season ends, because I always notice my interest in cycling fades a bit during September. Normally I follow and try to see pretty much any race, but once September comes I only watch the big races and actually miss results of smaller races.

Once it's over though it won't take long before I start to miss it. I'm allready looking forward to the TDU. No kidding!

I try to watch cyclocross, but I always forget about it.

I'm so depressed I try to avoid this forum so I can try to forget that cycling actually exists.

Reading about whatever crazy stuff the teams get up to on their big winter training camp/ first meeting with new guys is rather entertaining!
In Italy when you need a coffee you need the right barista, so you need to teach Chris [Juul Jensen] how to make the right coffee.
