I hear that a lot.

- Well, I tried it in 2010 and liked it well enough, but at the end of the season I looked back at all the awesome Fall weekends that I could have gone on long mountain bike rides that I spent suffering for 45 minutes at a time and regretted it.
- Sort of related to #1, all the travel to get to short races that I only kinda like.
- Expense on something I only kinda like
- I suck at it. I'm okay at the suffering part, but I just don't have the power for cross. Maybe if there was a cross race with a few thousand feet of elevation gain I wouldn't suck so bad.
There isn't any anti CX referendum in my little book rules; if there isn't anything better to do and it's not too far I might consider it...
but I'd much rather do this:
*Or rather usually not.
