Well as you are probably aware by now, road races are so yesterday, because right now it's cyclocross season. The seasons change and so do the ingredients necessary to be a successful racer. As a rookie racer in this unique discipline, I'm learning what it takes to fit in. It's hair - and lots of it!

Nah, the leaderboard is littered with guys like this rouge's alley. They know the secret which I will break down for you right now! HAIR+TATS=STYLE and unless we're going to an insurance convention to race our bikes we need to get with it people.

Are these two 'rocking enough strands'?
uhhhh, no way right?
And this guy?

No way - that skin is pampered, my guess is he shaves his face like those guys on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy".
So, I conclude with an open letter to FareStart and all those who love them. If you want your racer to take it to the next level this year in 'cross you must join me in unplugging the trimmer! Hide the razor! Tell the barber you moved out of town because until we can bring the complete package like Ricker here, we don't stand a chance.
ps - Cycle U., is this part of 'cross boot camp?
