Successful Junior 'Cross Fundraiser

Last week, Brandon Dwight (co-owner of Boulder Cycle Sport, and who helped me found the TIAA-CREF/CLIF BAR cross team) and I put on a fundraiser for the ACA's junior cyclo-cross program, the Mudskippers.

Almost 200 people came out to the Boulder Theater to enjoy Sam Smith's new 'cross documentary, Cyclofile 1.

The best part of the movie for me was seeing the featured segment on our team - very cool because Sam has been hanging out with the team and filming the kids at races and on trips since our very first season in everyone got to see some "retro" footage of Brady Kappius winning the Portland USGP as a Junior, Alex Howes blasting onto the Jr Nats podium in snowy Providence, and both of Danny Summerhill's Jr National titles.

The latest installment of Chocolate, waffles, and 'cross is up over at, and Brandon reports on not only his THREE!!!!! race wins so far in 2007 but also the fundraiser, and the crucial time (now!) for Boulder cyclists to express their voice about the proposed inclusion of a cyclo-cross course in the new Valmont City Park master plan...head on over to to find out how to get your voice heard!
