For Mr. BigWheel:

Denver EnduroCross update

Yes, Taddy did it again. He was easily half a track ahead of Taylor Robert when he took first place. But go easy on him, Enduro Alaska; he's such a nice boy.

I took my son to get rider autographs, but just as we reached Taddy he said to us, "I am sorry, but I have to go race now." So polite, so sincere, and so genuinely joyful about racing. With him looking like a 14-year old desperately trying to grow a beard, my maternal instincts flared. It was all I could do not to say, "Be careful out there, sweetie." Instead we wished him luck, which he clearly didn't need.

Mike Brown was looking good early on; he's so graceful on his bike that one wonders, "is this EnduroCross or ballet?" But he faltered in the Main Event.

Best wishes to the Metamucil Militia next week--but be nice to Taddy.
