A couple Fridays ago, the bubble of Silicon Valley was buzzing with what was deemed the most anticipated event anyone  could remember.  For us cyclocrossers, maybe that would be the day the U.S. would host the World Championships, or the day we finally snag that race victory, but in this tech-crazed, still crazy-expensive area that Cyclocross Magazine calls home, this long-awaited day was the Facebook vanity URL landgrab.

After a ride we found ourselves in front of a computer shortly after the rest of the valley was madly tapping away for choice domains. And somehow, we fought off the urge to squat on something like http://facebook.com/cameras or  http://facebook.com/cheaphotels or even http://facebook.com/svennys.

But as luck would have it, the most appropriate url was waiting for us, your diehard cyclocross fanatics:
http://facebook.com/cyclocross

Hopefully that’s easy enough to remember.
