Bart Wellens mega-bike lift

Who doesn't love Bart Wellens? He's a scrapper. Doesn't always look like the smoothest guy out there, but without question he's a freak of nature.

Case in point: this video from the Roubaix WC last season shows Bart coming into the barriers at 88mph like Doc Brown in the Delorean, then does an insane bike port as he's going over the barriers.

Funny to see Wellens with his bike 6 feet in the air, to Boom and Stybar (love that kid!) who follow him with your standard barrier technique, which looks kind of dull in comparison.

Wednesday Cross Rides

It's that time of year - I can already feel a bit of fall in the air. Hopefully we get a bit of moisture this year for cross.

We'll be doing cross rides on Wednesdays at 5:30 - typically we'll ride at Bear Creek State Park. Meet at the Conoco on Morrison Rd. and C-470.
If you carry your bike over barriers like this gentleman, you must attend to do some learnin'.

There might be an audible now and again to go ride another cross course in Golden - contact me if you want to be on the list: clay at apexbackup com.
