Have you seen Sanne Cant smile? So many reasons to watch last weeks race if you missed, Sanne Cant’s smile is one thing. Awesome and tight racing in perfect autumn weather is another one. A race where you can’t tell who is going to win
I’m not for that women (or men) should get a job to make the workplace equal between men and women. I’m for the best one for the job. Everyone should be worth the same no matter of gender or skin colour. Cyclocross is a sport where women and men aren’t worth the same, sadly but true.
But it can be changed. So let’s give everyone a the same chances. The girl on the picture for example, she isn’t so old in the sport but she is a girl you should know of if you’re interested in cyclocross.
Here is both men’s and women’s race from Ronse yesterday:
You know the feeling when you got a high quality set of hubs, some nice rims and new spokes and putting them together for a wheelset you really wish for?
This morning was my plan to finish this wheelset for my cyclocross. Cyclocross is the sport that needs wheels and where you got to have tubulars to go fast without puncturing.
Then it went wrong. DT Swiss spoke calculator showed wrong spokelengths so the spokes was 2mm too short on all places. And of course we didn’t have the right spokes at home. Anyone got 292mm DT Revolution for sale in Stockholm?
Then it was the hardest part. I mounted the cassette and tried it on a bike as a friend was curious if it works with Tune Kong 12×135 rear hub on a bike with SCS spacing. Can say it doesn’t! The cassette lock-ring was laying against the derailleur hanger and my wheelset is worthless for my CX 😦 Maybe I will hear or find a solution tomorrow. But will have to race GP Hasse Mård tomorrow evening with clinchers.
So please hold a thumb we find a way to make them work tomorrow. Otherwise they will go on my roadbike.
The good thing buying a bike from a good bike company is that there isn’t any other brands with the same frame. It’s not like you find a Specialized Tarmac with for example Fuji on, if you find a frame looking the same it’s a unlegal copy.
But with smaller companies just buying a frame and puts their sticker on you can find copies. Here we have a girl riding a Wilier CX last sunday in Valkenburg:
But she isn’t alone riding that frame, Sophie de Boer and some others are riding Guerciotti Lembeek which to me seems to be the same frame:
Has Wilier just got the same frame as the CX company Guerciotti or is it opposite?
If you see one CXvideo this year, or in your life it should be this one. It shows how hard CX is, how beautiful it is, how european it is and it shows that women is racing as hard as men or maybe even harder for less money.
