The Erik Tonkin Column

I’m happy to announce that local professional ‘cross racer Erik Tonkin will be publishing a weekly column here on Well, not exactly here…I went and made him his own space.

He’s gotten off to a great start with this article about how his friends help beat him up in mock races around Reed College in preparation for the World Championships.

Erik leaves this morning for the Netherlands and I’m looking forward to posting his race reports before the mud dries. Good luck to Erik and the entire Oregon contigent!
