Off Season. What now?

12 Oct 2012 08:54

season is over ._.
What are we supposed to do until next year?
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Tour presentation is still two weeks away.

Can spend a month moaning about that.

Then pretend to be excited guessing which 12 MTFs will appear in the Vuelta.

Should be more Clinic news to keep things relatively interesting.

CX on Sundays.

When does XC and Biathlon start?

You're too optimistic...
I foresee 15 MTFs.

There's always football, and soon we'll have XC skiing, alpine skiing, biathlon. Sadly no NHL yet thanks to the lockout, but plenty of sports to keep me occupied. Anyway, the Tour Down Under is not that far away... ;)

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.

In terms of the RR it finishes for me after Lombardy.

Now, its time for some class CX and getting out there and getting the base miles in ready for next season.

Oh and there is something happening I think, in the clinic at the moment :)

But for me, it will mostly be frites, mayo and CX action :D

Ha - I have been reading the Clinic pages now.

If I hadn't lost Universal Sports access the answer would be "Ski racing". Watching Bode Miller was a good fill-in for me in the winter. But w/o that channel anymore, IDK what the winter will hold!

And this. Maybe even post a couple inflammatory comments that are obviously wrong to get an argument going :p.

24th November in Gällivare is the start of the world cup in XC with the usual warm up race in Bruksvallarna one week earlier. Biathlon starts 25th in Östersund. Hopefully this winter will provide better conditions than last.
I like cyclists dressed in orange.
