Watch cyclocross races, train for next year, and buy/sell cycling items on ebay.

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. :cool:

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! :D
