From Heckler to Announcer: Come Check it Out at Quad Cross This Sunday
As some of you know, I am one of most merciless hecklers in New England cyclocross. I am especially known for calling people out for sandbagging and coming up with creative taunts and comments to get a reaction from pinned riders.
Apparently my skills have been noticed. I will announcing at Quad 'Cross this Sunday
This morning, I got an email from Ian Sutton, the quiet promotor of Wednesday Night SuperPrestige, asking if I would be willing to help out with the race announcing. Obviously, this is my kind of thing, so I jumped at the chance.
Since my schedule is quite full currently, I will only be announcing the races right after my race, the elite women's and the elite men's races.
I may be lucky enough to be joined by fellow teachers, Matt Aumiller and Matt Miller, who have also agreed to help out.
It should be interesting to see if I am able to make the transition from mean and offensive heckler to family friendly race announcer.
