Cross Crusade #2 - Alpenrose Dairy, Portland OR

Portland resident and Sellwood Cycle Repair employee Erik Tonkin is racing his heart out on the World Cup cyclocross circuit. His candid reports reveal how tough the racing is:

Oh my god that was hard. Thankfully, even the top guys consider it one of the toughest. The sand is long and deep and then wet and mucky, and the course is short…I’m happy to say that I survived on the lead lap, though…”

Read the entire report and stay tuned to the OBRA email list for more of Erik’s reports from Belgium.
