Now that it actually feels like winter in the mountains, thanks to Sidi I am totally prepared:
After a full season on the roots, rocks, sand, and creek crossings, my Dragon 2’s have taken a beating. One of the coolest features of these shoes is that the Dragon SRS sole is completely replaceable and in a few minutes they are like new!
The Techno 2 buckle, instep closure and caliper buckle can be replaced as well.
These are the best cycling shoes I’ve ever owned and the level of quality and craftsmanship is unparalleled. The option for toe spikes and adjustable heel security system made a huge difference on the run-ups in cyclocross races.
Also making a difference in cyclocross is Bob’s Red Mill. Check out a great article on the company in CX Magazine HERE. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to represent BRM for the past two CX seasons! I’ve been a fan of the steel-cut oats, flax seed and baking flour for years and am excited to try out a plethora of Gluten-free products:
With my grits, cornbread and biscuit mix I am ready for my first winter down South! Cutting out gluten was a difficult but important decision for me to make and at first I was worried that I’d be missing out on a lot of delicious food. Bob’s Red Mill has proved me wrong! Dave has been suspicious of the consistency and flavor of gluten-free foods and I even impressed him with some BRM GF pancakes. He didn’t even know that they were gluten free until I told him later on…this is a big deal. Bob’s Red Mill is committed to quality (they even won the Golden Spurtle at the 2009 World Porridge Championship!) and I can find GF products that taste great!
My off-season has been anything but quiet and I’ve been busy preparing for the 2011 mountain bike season. I have a lot to be thankful for and even more to look forward to!
