Rain, Where You At

Don't know if any of you noticed while out basking in the sunshine and warmth (ain't global warming great?) but we've barely had any rain since October. What's up with that? This isn't Arizona!
A crosser needs a solid dose of vitamin M on a regular basis to avoid going crazy and start eating gravel.
Hence the following post on the yahoo norcal cyclocross boards, which I encourage every rider to join in:
Mass consciousness experiment, everyone think RAIN for Sunday 12/2 at Central Coast CX. Think and visualize down pouring sheets of rain, mud, muck, and glory! Spread the word...MUHAHAA. -f1reh0rse
Sounds like a worthy experiment....

Two of those cccx races have had rain the day before the event, but your right there is hardly been anything in the way of rain. That Cup race at manzanita was very wet in some spots with puddles, flooded parts, and some really muddy sections. Maybe one of the promoters will take out a garden hose and wet the courses down so we can have our fix of mud. please

I like the idea of manual watering to create mud if it is not raining. I think it would be good if all the promoters flooded certain sections of the course to create the same affects of a heavy rain. Then there would be full on cross racing even if it was dry out. And I could do all the damage possible to the race venue as to get the most return for my entry fee investment. I really like the idea of watering the courses if they are dry, and I will bring a hose if needed to each race to help out.

Is there any chance of flooding the next BASP race to really get Tom Simpson excited?

Apparently not everyone loves rain as much as Dave Carr - for some reason the rainy events have the lowest attendance. Last year's surf city finals were absolutely epic, and the turnout was absolutely dismal.

Sadly, I think our weather breeds a lot of fair-weather crossers.
