Cyclocross Nationals 2003: Tomorrow, the top US cyclocrossers will compete for the National championship in Portland Oregon. What is cyclocross , you ask. While we're no Belgium when it comes to this discipline of cycling, there will still be some good racing.

If the weather in Portland is like the weather in Eugene, we can look forward to an incredibly muddy race....

Cyclocross is sheer freakin' madness. Makes me wish we had enough snow and slush around here so I could do it.

Also, Lance Armstrong does a hell of a lot of cyclocross in the off-season. Some think that's what helped him keep his head during this year's Tour when he veered off course into a sheep field. Sweet.
