Getting Cold.. er warm?.. feet

Well, I thought it was end of line for 2012's Kermesse season.  PruDog is busy!  PruDog has a life!  PruDog talks about himself in the 3rd person!

But enough of you have demanded/begged/emailed me to remind me how awesome the series is to think of a compromise.  Would there be interest if the series wasn't sanctioned?  We'd still have the course and capture the top 6 but wouldn't have officials or all the behind the scenes stuff that take up time.

End of Line

So I can't help but notice that the only activity on this blog now are comments wondering where the F&^% the 2013 Kermesses are.  What's up with that?  You'd think the guy who runs this place would have the decency to, you know, actually update it once on awhile.   Oh wait...

Kermesses are fun!  And they've kind gotten sorta popular the last few years.  It's certainly not like the days where I could rack up my yearly win total just by throwing one and having 5 guys show up.  Oh, the good old days.

But that's ok cause racing hard and not winning is way more fun than racing sorta hard and winning.    

Unfortunately as jazzed as I was to not only put on the Ronde, MSK and ASK this year and even add a new Mashel-Nisqually Roubaix life has rudely interrupted.  My new (and quite awesome) job will require most of my time in February and I am not really sure whether I can commit the time in August for the Ronde.  I'll have to play it by ear.

I originally had a couple promoters lined up to take over but that fell through.  If you are interested let me know!  They aren't that hard to put on, but do require some time commitment for course prep and equipment pickup.
