Cyclocross

We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

Kona Growing Up Cross from Kona Bikes on Vimeo.

As Kona said in the intro to this edit, “For us, it’s not only about creating bikes for future champions, but also inspiring a love for cycling that lasts a lifetime.” And Mark V just dug one of their old bikes out of the back of the closed shop and is restoring it.

Maybe he’ll race it cross one day too…

Riding the Sand

Lars van der Haar shows you how it’s done

Watching the elites at Gieten today, I was reminded of how well they ride the sand and we do not. Racers in the Seattle area are at Silver Lake today and reaching the beach, hopefully finding a good line. In the 3rd issue of our magazine, Matt Hill explained how Wellens rides the sand. For anyone that’s face planted into a sand pit or just stalled after a bike length, it’s a mandatory read.

Issue 3 is available as a back issue in our iOS Newsstand app and on the web for $4.00 per issue or with a $16.00 annual subscription.

So how the heck do those Euro guys blast through the sand sections with such grace and style? Well, Matt breaks down footage of archetypal Euro Cross star Bart Wellens, showing the US peons just how to get things done.

First the men

Like Meyerson said, “Can you believe this flyover?! Oh wait, that’s just a hill, you say? ‘Cross is sometimes hard, you say?” Huh and this was way before the “hard flow” favored by today’s course designers by race promoters, like McClung from MFG.

And the women

While racers lost lots of time on that muddy run up topped with a barrier, at the time the course was the anti-jungle ‘cross. Look how wide those lanes are for passing. Not too long ago, here in Seattle at North Seatac we had a drop off into a fire pit (not lit, of course, just the burned out logs), followed by a singletrack through brick and bramble. Part of the skill required was not crashing out.

Lots of racers riding by themselves in this event

Sliver Lake in 11

This weekend, racers are lining up at Silver Lake, arguably the hardest course in the area. It’s situated next to a lake and each lap a beach is stormed, before an ascent up the banks, into the trees, and back down…

KCE Cross

KCE on the Stairs

As seen on Instagram and according to Robert Higdon, the best KCE mystery mailing yet, maybe ever. KCE is like the Banksy of bikes in your mailbox. We haven’t gotten one yet, perhaps not sexy enough or haven’t spent a night out drinking with the artist, whoever it is. Search for #KCE on social networks, skipping over the selfies and butts, and you’ll find more art….

Cross Vegas In Pictures

While the industry has been a bit abuzz about the beer throwing at this year’s Cross Vegas race during the Interbike trade show, we’ve been reflecting on the awesome aspects of that race, and on cross racing in general. As a chill slips into the air across much of the United States, the cross lover starts to think of the joy of continual anaerobic punishment.
