It is never too late - Sue Butler "UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup #2"

This might be the first cyclocross?

You have to love the distinctive Celtic society of the Highlands. Below racers jumping off a five- foot river bank somewhere in Scotland in 1957. You know that water is cold!!!

Those where tough lads! How things have change, even the gals are in the game!
It’s not just athletic ability – it’s about attitude and desire to improve your game!

To gain UCI points - you have to be there!

It is never too late

Sue is now in Europe getting ready for the Pizen, Czech Republic, her 2nd World Cup, after Aigle, Switzerland. So far this year, she has claimed a podium at 5 UCI races, the opening NACT weekend with the Rad Racing Gran Prix, Star Crossed, followed by the Planet Bike Cup part of the Greenware US Gran Prix of Cyclocross and two out of three of Cincinnati’s UCI3 Cyclocross Festival races. Her top level goal this year is to do well at the World Championships in Germany.

I had a horrible World Cup last weekend, starting in the back, getting hosed in the start, getting stuck behind many gals that can't ride. From almost last to 20th. It was hard.
Now I have the opportunity of a lifetime. FRONT ROW AT A WORLD CUP!!! so excited, but have been sick all week. So mad, but apparently colds don't affect your performance. I hope it is just a cold. It is just nasty. Haven't been able to train this week. So no, not racing in KY. Racing in Czech republic.
Watch out world, Sue Butler is on the front row. :) I just wish I felt my best. What can you do??? I will do my best and push through it and worry about being sick later.
