Oh Nein...

Your Name here.
They call cyclocross the NASCAR of cycling with its fast pace, some rubing and the fact that we go around in tight circles. While I don't entirely agree with annology, Tim Johnson is not helping the cause. Recently he has been showing up to cross events with a Red Bull helmet, the ultimate sellout. I wonder if he actually drinks that crap?

I realize he is not the only one plastered with logos, and actually his 'Nine-Ball' kits are pretty sweet. Not too mention Tim is an awesome guy, and I am all for a starving cyclist to make a decent income, but Red Bull? Besides, I thought they only sponsored anti-skinsuit wearing, gated-racing, non-pedaling huckers?

I like Red Bull. It's got caffeine, taurine, and sugar in it. Comes in a lo-cal sugar-free version.

At the local road races, these two Red Bull girls go around giving out ice-cold ones and I always look forward to that caffeine jolt.
