Sorry dude, that press release was a joke from some one who got screwed by Noble House earlier in the year. Denny Penny and Russ Blake were supposed to be putting together this great pro team with Noble House sponsorship. But it never worked out and a bunch of local and professional riders got shafted. There is more to the story, but I don't know it.

All signs do point to Baltimore as the host for Nationals. And it's just over a month until the MAC series kicks off with Evolution Racing's Hickory Run Cross in Newtown, PA. Go to for a race flier.

if it was meant to be a joke, it's pretty pathetic. These people should grow up and not screw up CX and give us a bad rep making us look like sore losers. These people should grow up and not put their beef on to everyone else like this. Do they race CX? If they do, point them out to me. OK, rant over, I just think this is lame.

I don't know who they are, and if they race 'cross or not. And I'm not so sure they're giving 'cross a bad name, but it would probably have been more appropriate if they had limited their "Press Release" to the PA Cycling BS list. Unless of course they included Russ and Denny's real home phone numbers and those guys start getting calls about the race.

Thanks for the update. I believed this email as it came to a reputable email list. Sorry to pass on a bad message to such a good group of people. It was right in my backyard too . . . . .

Let's hope for Baltimore. And yes, I know about the MAC series. Should be an exciting group of races this year.
