HighFlange does the Lone Star CX Festival in Austin, TX

The cyclocross season in TX is coming to a sad close. No more 30 minute dry heaving running jumping sliding and getting lapped by the actually fast guys.
A broken chain during the warmup lap knocked me out of the cross race in the Woodlands last week, but the 26 inch rig is back with a new BMX style half link chain from Bicycle World and Fitness and I finally am going to be lacking an excuse for my poor performance this weekend!
The lone star cx festival is coming with collegiate races on Saturday, and the rest of us on Sunday. I’ll be racing with the rest of the cross noobs in Cat 4. They have taken mercy and made the Cat 4 race only 30 minutes instead of the usual punishing 60 minutes. Picture this: You were probably going to waste those 30 minutes of your life watching television, surfing the web, and scratching yourself anyway, so why not come out and race?

Time to stretch those muscles and get those few cool down rides in before the subjecting myself to the last muddy lycra of the season.

If you’re in Austin, catch us out there! I’ll be in the fluorescent pink blue and black Tarckbike.com jersey and shorts…

more to come post race…
