Dear BMR sponsors,

Some part of me is feeling like this is a bit of deja' vu, because I'm about to say pretty much the same thing I've said for the past three seasons in this first installment of our new cyclocross season's results. But then again, I guess there are worse things I could be worrying about at the moment. And with 10 victories within the team in the first month of racing, "this is the finest start to a cross season the team has ever had!" There, I said it. And I couldn't be more excited or proud of the team.

As always, "the journey of a 1000 miles begins with the first step," and these first steps into our 2008/'09 cross campaign are just the beginning to set the tone and mood in the team for a successful end-of-the-season, culminating in a best ever (hopefully....) batch of results in our trip to the Masters Cross World Championships in Mol, Belgium. Yes, we are already thinking that far ahead, but at the same time, being careful with the process in the here-and-now.

Enough of the fluff. Our latest batch of results speak for themselves. Enjoy, and thanks for reading.

Thank you all for your continued support of Blackmarket Racing.
