The first installment of the Cross Crusade series at Alpenrose Dairy this weekend definitely proved that #crossishere. Day two provided a dose of PNW rain which makes Portland cyclocross and Cross Crusade the envy of CX'ers everywhere.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to race this weekend but I still had time to get out and watch a little. Actually, not racing saved me from having to dip into my suitcase of excuses about why I suck so bad in the rain and mud. Hope you enjoy a few of the muddy memories from the weekend while you think about next weekend's race.
