We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.
Amazing that this weird and beautiful sport has been gone so long from NYC. – Zach
I didn’t know there wasn’t any Cyclocross racing in New York? Well, rock on it’s back, and featured on the City Blog with video.
More Cyclocross Coverage
Note: This story was told to me by Chris Mahan, REI Designer.
The best part of spending your cold, wet, winter Sunday mornings racing cyclocross is the group of racers. Most of these people are just happy you’re dumb enough to be out there with them riding knobby-tired road bikes in the mud. It’s an old school mountain bike vibe.
(Photo Credit Matt Morrisson) Sunday was beautiful. It hasn’t rained in a few days - so where did all that damn mud come from?
Byron and I made it out to race the single-speed category and proved quite definitively that we are road racers (and not so hot in the slop). No barriers on this course, but plenty of obstacles. A 400m mud slog was the toughest test in the course keeping lap times quite slow. A race that is typically 45 minutes took 60.
