Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one. ~Marianne Williamson TBW Hammercross Youth Cyclocross In the spring we were  approached by Don Rose and Chris Mumford to put together a youth cyclocross team. At the time we had no idea what Cyclocross was and what it entailed.   We were mainly excited by the possibility to find another avenue to get youth on bikes and outdoors. Fast forward to now. Two weeks after the state championship races in Pinehurst and our youth CCXr's walked away with four medals for their participation! Riding a bike is meditative. The purpose ofmeditation is personal transformation. ~ Henepola Gunaratana We are so very proud of them. They work hard for the 30 minutes that they are racing but they always end up smiling.   They trained twice per week until the time change and races began. They have their sites set on new accomplishments in the next season. I'm sure they will approach practices with a "new set of eyes" and searching for ways to make improvements. They are hooked.
