So while I can't even begin to complain about how well the series has been going so far (it really has been a great experience) I will say that one thing has been lacking...
I know there has been at least one at each race (mainly because I live with the ringer) but if i could have one thing at the next race (apart from mud!) it would be more cowbells and noisemakers.
To give you all some inspiration here is a great (and amusing) article from the nice guys at CX Magazine.
But don't get stuck on it needing to be a "cow"bell, there are plenty of bells/hooters/horns that many of us have on our bikes, or know of musicians who own similar.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Let's make some noise for the racers!
