Meant to post this yesterday, just to say that I think Behind the Barriers has been instrumental in turning me into not just a JPow fan, but a Tim Johnson fan (last year’s bromance - I miss it!) and very much a more rabid cyclocross fan. Like I was saying yesterday, I don’t think it matters how you get there (to fandom), as long as you do. In this case, the gateway drug was the personality of jpants and the awesomeness of cyclocross in general. The inside peek for a n00b like me.
The fact that I know the names of the elite men now is due to this show. And I can’t wait for the next episode. It was a long summer, for sure. If you haven’t seen it, go back and watch the entire first season starting with… duh, Episode 1. Sure, it will suck your day away, but it’ll be worth it.
Love the old guy near the start of this vid, and the racing footage is awesome in this one.
