OLver, you look really familiar. have you ever crossed the border and done some racing in the states? I have raced a few times in quebec, maybe i saw you then. what category do you ride? i don't know what the canadian equivalent is, but i race Junior X (expert) here in vermont.

adri, you look like one of those insane hardcore old dudes who eats juniors for lunch :)

there is a guy in my area who is US national champion in cyclocross for 55+ and he beats the crap out of me in races (at local races we race the same level). it makes me sad :cry:
except i cought him once! w00t. i was so happy.

Hi,

i'm new here, been reading this forum a couple of months but finally took the step!
My name is Arno Janssen, 28 years old, living in The Netherlands. Doing my mountainbiking ( marathons ) and roadracing, sometimes a little swimming or running. My bike is a Cannondale F2000 SL with CrossMax XL, xt-xtr, RaceFace, 959, Mosquito Airlights, SLR, Louise etc.
Hoping to read and learn some things here and meeting some nice tech-heads along the way :wink:

greets, Arno

Pic is an attachment since it's not online, hope this works !

Well seen Adri :wink:
Pic was at the 2003 GRC as you can see, rode a GT Karakoram with SID SL, xt-xtr, RaceFace, King, CrossMax, 959, HS-33. Bought the Cannondale last April and traded the GT in, with pain in my heart...
I will place a pic of the Cannondale in the 'What do you ride' topic very soon !
