First off, I probably should apologize. This vlog is long. And I mean *really* long. Well, at least for a vlog, it is. I realize we vloggers should keep our videos to a short and easily digestible length. I get we all have things to do and a 30-minute video about a #thickboyofcross is 20 minutes too long. But it’s mostly because a majority of us have the attention span of a gnat.

Sorry, again. That was uncalled for. But, you should know this is the HIGHLY edited version. I pulled as much out as I could while managing to maintain the narrative. I even tried splitting it, but that didn’t work at all. So here we are, facing 30 minutes of cross content. For those of you more into podcasts, think of this as half a podcast, but with unbelievably gorgeous moving pictures instead of a shitty logo as the episode cover, plus the major upside that it’s not a podcast.

Have to thank the Charm City CX crew and everyone who makes this incredible event happen. At the moment, I can’t find the vocabulary to convey the superlatives associated with this race. Check out the VeloNews interview with race director, Chris Auer, to get an idea of how special this event is.

SPOILER: We didn’t make it to D2. Engine is fixed tho.
