Instagram The CXOff Video



You guessed it! Absolutely riveting sub-par racing action from the back of the pack with live-commentary in the form of distressed breathing and phlegm clearing. There’s also some #cxvibes from the singlespeed race that’ll make you long for the days we could actually be close to each other; bittersweet but more sweet than bitter. Also added some trimmed down coverage of the women’s and men’s elite races with some extra bits in the post-race that weren’t in the original videos back in 2018.

Hope you’re able to enjoy this #cyclocross action despite it being from 2018. Getting these videos edited and published has been a goal for a while and I’m stoked I’ve finally had the desire to jump back in and finish them.

Instagram The CXOff Video



Since we’re spending so much time at home in 2020, I finally had time to clean out my freezer. Found this two-year-old footage jammed way in the back but I’m sure it’ll be just fine for consumption.

Yes, I realize it’s 33 freaking minutes long, but considering the lack of #cyclocross currently in everyone’s lives, I figured it couldn’t hurt to leave the edit kinda fat. I’ve included some chapters to make it easier to digest.

If you’re paying attention you’ll notice I said this is “one” of the lost episodes from Season 4. Obviously, there are more coming. Also, despite my cutting a lot of my word vomit out, you may notice something’s not quite right. There were some definite cracks in my mental health starting to show in 2018 and I caught some of it here. I’ll definitely cover all of that in the very near future.

Hope you all enjoy this edit, I had a lot of fun diving back into Premiere after a pretty substantial amount of time away. Seeing all this footage reinforced just how much I miss racing and this cyclocross community.

It’s Boredom Spice Season? Fall Into Boredom? NEW SHIRTS + MERCH

I Recall Cyclocross In Fall

There’s something special about racing cyclocross in fall. The sun streaming through the tree’s changing colors, the long shadows, the smell of the crisp air, the breeze rustling the leaves on the ground and those still hanging on, and the chill on your skin as you’re burning up from turning yourself inside out while stressed breathing efficiently delivers ragweed and mold deeply within the passages of your lungs…

OG Block Logo – LMTD Fallen Remix

Ahhh, memories. Whatever it is you associate with racing cross in the fall, we can all agree picking up one, maybe two of these shirts is a perfect pairing with a pumpkin spice latte or a pumpkin IPA, or a pumpkin-spice-a-rita.

In addition to a WIDE variety of shirt styles, there are sweatshirts, mugs, hats, totes, etc. all available in these designs as well as nearly everything else I’ve produced. In most cases you can customize what color shirt you’d like, so you’re not locked into what’s posted.

This, like the flannel drop before, is a limited edition. Once the leaves have completely turned from beauty into a lawn-killing nuisance, these are gone.

30 Seconds – A Cyclocross Love/Hate Story

Full disclosure: this started as a quick promo video for a new t-shirt, then spiraled WILDLY out of control into what you see now. And what you see now is a full emersion into nostalgia especially as COVID has canceled a majority of our cyclocross seasons around the world.

30 SECONDS – A Cyclocross Love/Hate Story

As both a racer (crying_laughing.emoji) and a content creator I was able to provide a glimpse of both sides of the starting grid.

I tried to show what’s struck me most about lining up to start a race: the rollercoaster range of emotions and dynamic energy present as you gather at the start, getting called up to your grid position then mentally preparing for the pain you’re about to put yourself through. Lots of chatter gives way to dead silence just before the whistle, although, not all the time depending on the field (SSCX FTW).

I personally have a love-hate relationship with everything leading up to the whistle. I battle with ADHD and the anxiety that started at home with making sure everything was packed, to getting my number and pinning, prepping the bike, and sometimes and getting a pre-ride; the start grid is the culmination of all that. However, there’s something profound about the 1 minute and 30-second warnings – suddenly I snap into singular focus, and everything I experienced getting to this point disappears. 30 SECONDS is the exact moment that is the most serious, the most stressful, then instantly the most calm.

Only thing left to do is to go.

TECH NOTICE: Use headphones, if possible. Some of the background conversations get lost on regular speakers.



There Still Is A Shirt Tho

Finally, just to be clear, I AM selling a t-shirt. Conveniently, it’s called 30 SECONDS which is also the name of the video. No chicken or the egg here, this was all shirt first. This is a remix of the legendary punk band shirt from legendary punk band 7 Seconds from their legendary punk album “Walk Together, Rock Together”. I used to skate ALL the time to this album, so many good tracks. The shirt was done in all yellow on black with a cartoon line drawing of the band at a show. It wasn’t the original album cover art, but I think it was used in later editions (correct me if I’m wrong).

It’s Officially Flannel Season – New Shirts Drop Today

Coming Out Of Hibernation To Sell You Shirts Perfect For Hibernation

Ignore the fact I haven’t posted on this website in well over a year. And ignore the fact that the first post in well over a year is me trying to sell something. I’ll address all that sometime in the semi-near future.

Now that we got that out of the way, I have some new hotness for you. Or, at least, I have some things I consider hotness that I hope you consider hotness and will trade me monetary compensation for said hotness.

Flannel From Now On, This Is The Way

Every year around this time I gather all my t-shirts (except my own brand, ofc) and button-downs into a pile and burn them in ritual offering signifying the start of flannel season which continues until I feel awkward sweating profusely while rocking plaid long sleeves in public deep into the spring.

Flannel Season Boredom Shirts

For this release, I have combined traditional buffalo print flannel (my fav!) and with my love of seeing my logos on things (my fav!). This works really well for the OG Square logo but is definitely a visual dumpster fire for the Cross Is Rad design which makes me love it even more. You have the choice of different shirt colors other than black which works for the square logo, but good luck with the Cross Is Rad.

I have more seasonal releases in the queue, so I’m putting this one on a timer. Yes, that’s right, I’m doing limited (LMTD) releases. You have a short, but not too short time span to grab these designs. That’ll allow me to keep things fresh and fun and constantly moving.

It’s The Old Shop, But Like Completely New

Overall, my Spreadshirt shop has undergone a massive overhaul. They changed things on the backend which made it easier to add my designs to more products. So now you can have me on an infinite array of t-shirts and sweatshirts as well as tote bags, coffee mugs, and other randomness.

SPECIAL NOTICE: I finally have a shirt that comes in at $20USD that doesn’t feel like it’s made from sackcloth!

Cycleboredom Shop Showing Signs of Live Again

I’ve refreshed most of my previous designs as well. Plus, if you dig a little into the shop you’ll find some new designs hiding that I haven’t officially released. Also, it’s now located within my site! You don’t have to travel as far to get there.
