      Cyclo-cross is ALWAYS very tough! Nothing's changed very much.

      well, they now have gears and super light parts... just imagine leaving your shifters alone for a ride...

      Not to mention brakes! Equipment doesn't make cyclo-cross any easier. It's brutal.

      so, if there wasn't any advantage, they would still ride the same bikes!

      The same guys would win the races, no matter the bikes. It all comes down to the rider if they're all riding the same bikes.

      Oui, CX is still brutal, but with those bikes it was even more brutaller! The course is what's tripping me out. And the bystanders' berets...

      Great photo, Jeremy. The berets make it!

      Yes, visiondrawn's right, the photograph is great . . . and I love the berets too. Thanks for showing it to us KA.
