Cross on the west coast has been underway for 2 weeks now and the Pegasus West Coast riders are out in force.
look for us at most of the SoCal Cross events, come say hi and we might give you a beer or a high five.

Team Pegasus West Coast
Cale finished 4th! We look forward to hearing about it just as soon as he's regained consciousness.
In case you missed it, here's a lite description of the route, via the Stagecoach 400 'about' page on their website:
"Starting in Idyllwild, we will ride through the San Jacintos to Borrego Springs by way of Coyote Canyon, geographically diverse and historic in the Juan Bautista de Anza expeditions. We’ll ride through the Anza Borrego desert, up into the Cuyamacas & Lagunas, and west to the San Diego Bay. The route brings us north along the Pacific Ocean and turns inland at Torrey Pines State Beach. From there we’ll ride through Penasquitos Canyon, Black Mountain Open Space, Lake Hodges, and the San Pasqual Valley Trail. The route reenters the mountains at Ramona and brings us back home on the California Riding and Hiking Trail."
Details from Cale to follow!
Pegasus fearless leader Cale Wenthur is moving into position to begin the Stagecoach 400. Check out his blog for some more info, or skip right to the Stagecoach 400 Live Tracker page to e-stalk the riders. Or, e-support. It's a fine line.
If you don't like to watch racers and their progress, might we suggest Hawk Cam? (Hawk's nest located in Madison, WI) At first you're like 'Oh, that might be kind of interesting to see, I guess." but pretty soon you're addicted to watching mama hawk feed bits of rabbits to her three chicks. (Note the bunny hindquarters in the photo below.)
Trust us on this one, it's awesome.
So good luck, Cale! May you be as merciless to your competition as mama hawk is to the many small mammals that provide nourishment to her chicks.
Ok, we're late on this one, and repeating ourselves as well, but this:
It should speak for itself.

The Wisconsin weather may have been weak, but the local flavor was strong.
Have you ever thought, "Man, that photo is so stretched out." only to realize it's Ryan Trebon?

In related news, if you ever thought you had a crush on a pro racer, think again. THIS is what a crush looks like. It's funny how this woman 'happens' to run into Ryan Trebon at races all across the country.
p.s. He's mine and he is labeled as such.
Jesse, we won't pretend that your posts don't drive us crazy. They're usually a cool three word title that piques our interest (Ok, we're jealous because we can't do it). Sometimes that's all there is. Sometimes we can get a few more morsels of information obliquely related to what it is we desperately want to know. Like when and where we can buy your f*cking t-shirts because they're f*cking cool.
Creepyfriendly is Jesse, who works at Trek and does work for Twin Six. His stuff is awesome. Join us in waiting to hear more about his line, and wondering if perhaps he'll do some 608 specific stuff. Since we like to explain in flowery detail what we write, we'll let you know that 608 is the Madison area code. Jesse's from Madison. Some of the Pegasus crew is from Madison. Ludacris did not mention it is his song, Hoes in Different Area Codes.
We couldn't help but notice Ed White has got some great photos (as always) of the Montrose Harbor race.
Here a competitor secures his victim and bares his teeth as he attempts to forcibly remove the victim's levator scapulae muscle.
Just kidding. If we're totally honest, these photos give us the warm fuzzies over cyclocross.
Alas, it appears the guy doubled over doesn't agree with us. PDA/PDSportsmanship just make him sick to his stomach.
All photos by Ed White. Check out many, many more on his flickr.
