December 11 thru 16, 2018
If you ever get the opportunity to race in a Nationals cycling event, do it!
With this year's Cyclocross Nationals less than an 8 hour drive away, three Diablo's jumped at the chance to race amonst the best in the United States.
John and Jeff had to contend with slick and muddy course conditions but nothing like the 7" deep muck that Ethan Janssen perservered thru.
With the exception of (some) injuries and catastrophic equipment failure, cyclocrosser's never DNF
due to deteriorating course conditions. In fact, we like it.
All three Diablo's pushed on, as they watched several of their competitors switch to clean pit bikes lap after lap (I missed you Jed - JA).
Congratulations on representing Diablo Cycling and our sponsors!
