Cyclocross

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

CXRex in Effect


Guess CXRex has his own category to not eat the other competitors, but would like to see him on more than a warm up lap…form was quite good for having huge legs and tiny arms too. Read more about CX in Issue 29 and this weekend in Seattle, it’s the UCI-sanctioned Subaru Cup.

Peter’s Camera

gadd

Fitting that Issue 29 is about cross and includes photos from Peter, when the community helped him get a new camera this week. Mark V is sure it was his rooster tail that finally killed the camera, but probably a few seasons of shooting in the wet ultimately corroded it. For the intro to his gallery, I asked Peter why he was out there every weekend

I think the reason cross has such a draw. You can wear what you want. You can compete against yourself or the best in the northwest. In a “I” world you can turn yourself inside out. Get dirty like a kid, bring the family and have a great time. We have lost our sense of community and this is a weekly block party for the fall and winter. Company picnics and a Cul-de-sac parties have gone away. It is rarely that an entire family can compete individually and you can get a child to cheer for their parents.

See the rest of Peter’s photos in the issue and on SmugMug. I suggested Peter set aside some crowdfunded budget for a proper rain cover too.

Puddles and Splashing

This also happened while we were out of town, a muddy CX race with Mark V in the water hazard like a kid splashing through puddles. As he told me, “Lotsa mud and sand; destroyed some bearings AND the coup de grace on my front carbon wheel. Wore thru the carbon sidewall.”

A day for disc brakes, eh?
