I know you're just trying to insult the original poster, but it comes off as an insult to gay people. I bet dollars to donuts that Doper is hetero, though likely a frustrated one.

Anyway, if I were in the area, I'd heed the wise words of pdxdan and ride in the event. Cyclocross is way fun (esp. on a uni) and I never met anyone there who disrespected me at all. In fact they were all way into it. It's a great exposure for us as a sport as so many bikers see it and some will ask to try your uni and might even start uni'ing!

hey, that guy insulted individual users and cursed

come on guys, it sounds like fun, but I do agree that there might be a better person to present this to us, unicross? do they even get to call it a world championships? ... will there be people representing enought countries? will there be anyone who is not american? I doubt it.

Wow everyone got really worked up over someone who was clearly just trying to get you guys pumped up for an event. Did anyone else find that he wasn't being an ass, he was just being annoying and trying to ajitate (did I spell that right?) you into coming. It's like when one kid sais come on sissy I dare you to jump or how sometimes in movies you see trainers calling the guy who is clearly not a noob, a sissy and a failure just to pump him up. It's just a marketing technique (although in this case I guess it definatly didn't work).


... damn I should be in marketing or something and not cooking, this is the second post in a row I have made on the topic of marketing strategies.

Hey! =p

I did mention that it sounded like a fun event and that I would like to come if I could. I also stated that I hoped there was good turnout for the event.

Thanks for two, good, forum-positive posts concerning this event. I see that Doper became a banned user quite quickly for some reason. I think his sales pitch may have been bit too heavy handed and spam-like.

November 12th 2006 in Estacada, Oregon (that's 'or-i-gun' for those of you east of the rockies)
Details can be found @ http://www.crosscrusade.com
Not world championships

If you don't Race, I can't beat you !
Again, WTF?
Do it Do it Do it Do it !
Im doing it as hard as I can!

This is for real. There are no prizes. There are no awards. There are no excuses!
The fact that he stresses the point that its "real" so much makes me think that its not

Again, this is real, man!Same comment as before Come and Ride! Quit talkin' about waxing your 'taints and ride like the wind!
You could win.Or not if its not real!
Yes, that would be cool.
Don't miss it!!
Dont worry, I wont miss not being there

M.U. do your gaurdians really let you get away with dropping "WTF" bombs all the over the internet. Come correct. If you intend for that to stand for what I think it stands for you have no business employing that abbreviation anywhere, especially not in public forums. Harper, back me up on this.

And what's up with all the doubters and haters, anyway? Remember Rowdy Rodney Piper of the WWF? A little screaming can be fun. I'm surprised everyone got so critical and suspicious. Racing Munis in the mud is a blast. And you get crazy love from the crowd. These people have never seen anything like it and they go nuts ringing cow bells and screaming, "Go Uni, Go!" .

So any fun loving, non-haters, in the PNW, do yourselfs a favour and get down the races. At least look at pictures and please stop you hating, 12 year-old haters.
