Huge thanks to Jamie for the inspiration to gather the tribe, share his ride zone, and encourage the evolution of a mighty fine time for all. We here at Clif can’t wait to see what next year may bring!

Troy Wells’ Well of Knowledge—New Year in Belgium

While Eric & I have been working to usher in the New Year here in Berkeley at the Team Clif Bar lair, TCB Cyclocrosser Troy Wells has been hanging out in Belgium, likely eating most of that country's food. Considering that Troy's probably chowing down on all the tasty grub to be had there, it's really a wonder that he's racing at all. Here's a list (courtesy of belgium.angloinfo.com) of what Troy's up against when he sits down at the meal counter:
