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

Traveling and Photographing Bikes

Sven

Another Sven photo from Cross Vegas

After 2 decades on the web, and most of that digital, it’s very satisfying to author a photography print piece with hot CX action for Digital Photo Pro magazine. The photos in the article are from Cross Vegas, capturing Sven Nys in the sand, and the story is about traveling light, a topic I’ve been blogging about for years, ever since the first Macbook Air.

Read more about Sven and Cross Vegas in issue 28 of Bike Hugger magazine and the November issue of Digital Photo Pro is on the newsstands now at a Barnes and Noble near you, delivered to your home or office too. Also, on the web and iTunes.

Logan Owen’s First UCI Win

Bokanev gets the shot of Logan Owen on the way to his first ever Pro CX win this weekend in Lakewood Washington at the Subaru Cyclo Cup. On Instagram, Logan said

This was a very special moment for me today. Being able to achieve my first UCI win in front of friends I grew up racing with and on course I grew up racing on was one of the greater moments I’ve had in my life.

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

hhhh

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?
