WITHOUT LIMITS PRESENTS THE CHESAUX CUP - 1ST PLACE SM OPEN SERIES CHAMPION
The Chesaux Cup is the only memorial that can live up to the kind of life Matthieu Chesaux lived - an outgoing, adventurous life, always on the move, never content to simply sit and watch the world go by. Matt had to move with it. Even when he was sitting down, he had to keep his mind moving, book in hand. For this reason, a memorial for Matt cannot be a stationary one. A memorial for Matt cannot be rooted to the ground or a wall somewhere, staying in place for an eternity. Like Matt himself, his memorial has to move. And so, the Chesaux Cup is perfect. It combines one of Matt's favorite passions - cycling and cyclocross - with the movement and constant change that was so essential in Matt's life. And it is not something that can be kept forever. Matt was a strong believer that victory is not a one-time achievement, it must be continually earned. You can win the race once, but if you want to keep your victory, you'll have to win it again. Thank you to Loni Sue Chesaux for working with Boulder Racing on the creation of the Chesaux Cup. Matt Chesaux was, and always will remain a fixture of the Boulder Cyclocross Scene!
