9/26/2005 - Hellooooo Cross Season!
The season of falling leaves is just around the river bend, and that means trading in that sleek, sexy road bike (which, let's admit it, we're all sick of by now anyway) for the knobbies and barriers. Bring on the season of Psycho-cross! And what better way to enjoy the festive mood of racing than participating in Velo Bella's 3 (count 'em -3!) Surf City Races. Mark your calendars!
October 16 - Get ready to explore the tropics of California in this jungle-themed race
October 30 - Annual Halloween race!
November 19 - UCI Gran Prix, come race, then watch the Pro's!
Which reminds me, I need to start thinking of a good costume for race #2. I've got some stiff competition - gorillas and a Cat in the Hat, Bella Slayers and who can forget THIS?
Also, look out for Bellas taking on Cross all over the nation. Not only will our 2005 Elite Squad be traveling all over da place, but our amateur crew will be representing in California, Washington, Michigan, North Carolina, and more!

Watch Out, World!
....... And as an aside, this author would like to challenge any willing individual to a Death Biking Dual. "My cycling carreer will not be complete until I beat Nicole Freedman in a Death Biking Match. Rainbow Stripes here I come! ..... I need a lot of practice."
