If you read this blog, you're probably not racing in the cyclocross world championships this weekend (although if you are, give us a shout-out). So it's time to start training for 2013. Drunk Belgians meet rednecks? It's on!

I know there's been a recent increase in the number of options that you, our dear readers, have when it comes to choosing a Bicycle Club-themed calendar. Yes, BCC jumped into the fray this year with our own Hollywood posing as Mr. January, but things are getting out of hand. No one at BCC will be publicly exposing their pubic thatches like this guy on the right side of the promo below:
Hey, if you want that, it's certainly out there. We're not prude at BCC, but we do keep it classy. Remember whether you're fast or slow, it's always possible to be classy.

they say that Eskimos have 52 names for snow, each definition capturing subtle differences in texture, wetness, structure. if this is true, then you would think that cyclocrossers surely must have 173 names for mud. names that reflect characteristics of thickness, stickiness, and depth. will it maintain a rut after it's ridden through, or does it seal back up? can you pedal through it? can you corner through it? what's the grass content? the sand content? how badly will it stain white skinsuits? but, no, despite the fact that cyclocross is the cycling equivalent of artsy and intellectual French New-Wave cinema (whereas road biking is the romantic comedy genre), cyclocrossers roots in mountain biking (the Hollywood action flick of cycling) leaves the sport mired in vocabulary of adolescence and uselessness. therefore, mud is somewhere along the spectrum from "sketchy" to "squirrelly" to "gnarly". and of course, all of those terms can be used positively or negatively.

now, the bicycle's rightful owner faces two difficult problems, (1) how to get the bike from durham to his current home in new york and (2) what to do with a terribly outdated hipster bicycle.

With the 23 cents (USD) that Bull City Cycling has generated thus far from ads on our blog, rumors are flying about the use of these funds. Leading topic is a dedicated Bull City Team Car (especially since I have been banned from personal use of the Rock Racing helicopter, Escalade, and Bentley).
Perhaps inspiration can be had from Team Sky?
However, I think we might stick closer to our roots (and budget).
No luck with finding a Lucky Strike Car...yet.

the new calendar year represents a time for transition.
