"Who was in front of me when I went down."
Answer - The Tifosi and the Burly , that's who !!


And now a recap of the last stage

Everyone has CROSS-FEVER


Sepia Cross



Ha Ha Ha , look that Mexican is still trying to do cyclocross.
Give it up already.


Tramp Stamp



" That Wayne , he's such a fuckin' tool."


The Pusher Man


That is a very light front wheel. Tim must have one at any cost.


We had a nice turnout despite the weather ( 25 ). Some were forced to show up by Wayne.

That is not a tumor


Some of the best hand-ups you will ever see. Thanks to our sponsors , the U S Armed Forces, PYOC and The Napa Valley Wine Growers in a Box Association( NVWGBA ).


You can check out more of the Reilly Press bandit series pics at


And that is it. We had 9 races in 2009. Maybe even more in 2010.



I just wanted to say "Thanks" for all the cx races. They have been everything a cx race should be, tough and fun. Best of all are the people, both racers and fans.

El Bandido 10-13-9 " Who was in front of us when I went down ?"

No points this week.
Because we had very little help picking up the course.
No race next week as a result.
Exempt was the guy with the concussion.

El Bandido 10-7-09 " Your course designing abilities are genius." or " You know these caps have gun powder in them."

Not many races can say they have a starters gun.
Forest Preserve races are the only ones I can think of.


Now watch ! For my next amazing trick I will give the signal to release the target.
Look this way...and fire the pistol that way. I will not hit the target but rather shoot the front tire out .....causing the bike to steer out of control into the pit of fire my brothers have built.

I hope she is not THE TARGET


The pain in Spain leaves a vomit stain



For Bandit #5 , Wayne is riding the backup to the pit bike , which backs up the race bike.
Ridley is making a fortune off the green team.

Cross Vegas 09

The run-up was not that tough. Maybe some fire or oil might have helped.


This a cool pic from a $5 camera


video

Show me the money. This guy wanted his drunk-off-his-ass buddy to get a pic of the action. It seemed like to much to ask of his friend.

RV is very popular with Filipino men under 5 feet tall. The K-town motor was shaking hands like he was running for office. The New Blagojovich?

Cross Vegas is the coolest event on the calendar. We need lights , beer and hookers in the future.
