JJ’s latest passion, as the weather turns cool (and then warm again, and then cool) is cyclo-cross. In layman’s terms that its some combination of cross country and cycling. And the bike itself is a cross between a road bike and mountain bike. While he has followed the sport for some time now, I just attended my first race this past weekend. Pretty cool, I should say, I can understand the attraction – it actually reminded me a lot of the days on the cross country course complete with cow bells and enthusiastic followers (ok, not sure there were enthusiastic followers of cross country – maybe just enthusiastic parents, but there were definitely cow bells.)
Who knows maybe next year JJ will be out on the course himself. For now, the goal is just to acquire a mountain bike.
