UCI CX in the Pacific Northwest

Peters

Pro men racing

MFG Cyclocross has been so busy working on bringing the previously cancelled UCI race to the Pacific Northwest, they didn’t send out a press release, like they normally do before a big event.

Not unlike CX Worlds in Louisville that was bailed out by Papa Johns, the event was “saved” by a unnamed California who asked that participants donate to water charities. Here’s their Facebook announcing the dates of 12/6 - 7.

We are fortunate to have a friend in California who has graciously decided to personally fund the title sponsorship for the weekend. With his support, we are able to do great work, and keep UCI racing in the Northwest. In exchange for his support, he has simply asked that we bring awareness to and help support an organization that he firmly believes in: Waves For Water.

Granting the Californian’s wish and with a big thank you, here’s what Waves for Water is about:

We work on the front-line to provide clean water to communities in need around the world. We work with world leaders and strategic partners who take a no-nonsense attitude toward making global change.


Sounds good to us; especially in the land of plentiful water. Been around the sport long enough to know the work, dedication, and effort these events require.

And us amateurs

We’ll race that weekend and report from the big show. Here’s a selection of photos from past Starcrosseds (MFG’s previous UCI races) and who can forget Joey?!.

Wasn’t Wet Enough In Seattle

Forested

Nice trail

It wasn’t wet enough in Seattle, so I rode east a bit, in North Bend. On the Iron Horse Trail and made it to here. The bridges smelled like soaked creosote and I turned around. Got enough material now for Issue 18

Laid the bike down, so it could soak more of the damp in

At one point during the ride back to the trailhead, a leaf fell in front of the bike, and was caught by the tire before hitting the ground.

Leafs falling and stuff

Venture Out


For our ventures, we ride, and race, and travel, and tour, and anything really with two wheels.

Issue 18: Research

My legs showed up for about 39 minutes of the 4 hour ride on Saturday AND I scored a double tailwind, which is like showing up at Panda Express right before closing, and the server gives you an extra spoonful of Honey Sesame Chicken Breast. I was out riding in the rain, ostensibly “researching” a story for Issue 18 that drops this month on iTunes and the web.

18 about how heavy rain weighs on our minds. The gear and bikes we ride too. I missed the local CX racing, but posted a report from the winner of the men’s 1/2s, Russy.

Reel Zef Shit!


New Die Antwoord just dropped and Flea is in it, Dita Von Tease, Jack Black too… and this edit isn’t safe for work, but wow, and on rotation while we’re writing and editing Issue 18.
