Whew! Finally, the Offseason is Here!

December 12th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

And thank goodness…C6RS is beat.  For months, we’ve been investing our heart and soul in cycling.  First there were the Spring Classics.  Weekend after weekend C6RS found itself elbow-to-elbow with crowds eager to fire up the cycling season.  Well, elbow-to-elbow with the spectators that is.  But it takes a hearty soul to be outside, sporting down-filled North Face parkas sipping caramel mocha lattes watching cyclists drive through freezing rain and high winds.  Then there were the summer crit series.  Talk about laying it all out there!  We lost track of how many tubes of sun-screen we had to lather on, sitting there in our Jens knock-off t-shirts watching riders circle lap after lap in the scorching sun.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep an iced latte “iced” in that heat!  Just when you think your body can’t take anymore, along comes the Cross series.  Once again, C6RS found itself among the huddled masses, sweating beneath our heavy wool sweaters watching cyclists anguish over sand traps and wall obstacles.  Not to mention the countless hours scraping mud off our suede mocs.

2011 was a great year.  One thing’s for sure.  C6RS earned its stripes this cycling season.  Sure, for most cyclists this would have involved actually cycling.  But no doubt C6RS has emerged from this season hungrier than ever for next year.  Like literally hungry.  Not if you’ll excuse us, we have another pan of peppermint-fudge brownies to take care of from mom.  After all, 2012 is right around the corner.
