Cyclocross

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

Snow Cross

The esssence of Cross, what this sport is about, is not riding inside on rollers or trainers. It’s facing the elements and what the wind threw down from the trees the night before. While its popularity grows with athletes chasing UCI points on sponsored rides, a strong desire to stay fit when the ground is frozen and covered with snow is where it came from.

Bustle in your Hedgerow Old-timey cross racers

I enjoy racing as much as the next Bro, but also find riding dirt on a road bike relaxing and liberating. Get away from the computer with no number on your back, course tape, or fans handing up beer. Just riding in the trees.

Cyclocross Priss

Noticed Heidi Swift’s nails really pop in this photo. She’s covered in mud, but the nails are polished.

She said:

… I’m still trying to keep the nails clean/intact. Such a priss.

Priss or not, that’s another example of women racing hard and looking good. Like Pam did in her bee outfit.

TRP’s CX9 cross-specific v-brakes

trpcx9.jpgThough I love cyclocross, I’ve long had a love/hate relationship with the equipment used on most cross bikes. I ride a variety of terrain on my cyclocross bike including standard cross races (usually flat, sometimes muddy) but also very hilly gravel roads near my home as well as things I’d normally take my mountain bike on. The biggest difference from my MTB and my cross bike is the braking – I have sure-footed discs on my mountain bike that can reliably slow me down any steep descents with good control while my cyclocross bike’s ancient cantilever brake design mean I’m mashing them to the rim with all my might, white knuckles showing on the downhills as I watch the edge of the trail approach my front wheel at way too great of speeds.

Tread for CrossCat

Hope this tread works across all conditions and I choose the right tire pressure for the CrossCat tomorrow.

Tread

A CrossCat is a Cross Race/Alley Cat mashup crazily conceived by Raleighs Sally, Go Means Go, and a qualifier for Sunday’s Single Speed Cyclocross Worlds.

I’ve been traveling, haven’t raced in a month, and just partied for 2 days in Vegas with these people

perfect prep for SSCXWC sure, but racing against competitiors like this and any equipment advantage will help and I don’t have a pony. Always wanted a pony.
