We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.
Cross season is here, and so is something else: the knee-high socks. I don’t really get the “why” with these things. Is it just aesthetic? Does it provide some shin protection when you pull a re-mount nutter? Is it a women-only thing (I think it is?)? What’s up?
If you’re into this sort of thing - Sock Dreams appears to have the goods.
After racing Kruger’s Kermesse last weekend, Cross season started in Seattle at North Seatac with a good turnout. Cyclocross is like the United Nations, or the Justice League, of cycling with roadies, mountain bikers, urban, and track all intermingling and racing each other. We see faces we haven’t seen before, families, and tailgate parties. They all come out to participate in the event for fun or race it seriously.
The women’s field all looked very determined on this short, steep, descent section. I told Sandrine McFadden she caught the men with her compression socks.
Mahan was there to transition from road to Cross and went into his zone at the starting line.Read More
