2009 Cross Nationals Rocked

It was a stunning day both in terms of weather and competition for the 2009 Cross Nationals in Bend, Oregon. With the backdrop of crisp blue skies, competitors took to the field to battle it out for the bragging rights that come along with a national title.

With each day of this nearly week-long race the weather has changed–flurries gave way to snowfall, which gave way to today’s ice-and-must festival. Collegiate men and women provided the most spirited competition and the pro divisions showed just how blazingly-fast one can ride a bike across a mud-strewn course.

The highlight of the course was easily the two-story-tall staircase that claimed just a few victims at its base. Easily one of the best courses in U.S. ‘cross racing the Bend, Oregon event was packed with spectators and massive amounts of cowebells.

Final standings are here.

Desalvo Cross: Built Local

Matt Haughey post photos of his new Desalvo Cross bike on the Buy Local Cycling site.

The bike is built as local as possible:

  1. Companies making parts locally in Oregon (DeSalvo frame, Chris King hubs & bottom bracket, Kool-Stop brake pads, Ruckus bashguard)
  2. American companies making parts in the US (Thomson stem & seatpost, Paul brakes, Selle An-Atomica saddle, Woundup Components Fork, Stans NoTubes rims & sealant)
  3. American companies making parts internationally (SRAM Force shifters & derailleurs, Salsa components, FSA crankset)

Bike Hugger is a sponsor of Buy Local and Matt is a periodic blogger for us and bro.

SSCXWC 09: Specialized Tricross SingleCross

While we recovered from the Mobile Social Worldwide and rode in the Seattle rain, Chris Mahan guest blogged for us at the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships in Portland. He rode a Specialized Tricross Singlecross.

SSCXWC: Specialized Tricross

As Rock the Bike said, “Diggin the cyclocross nuttiness.”

Chris told us

the Specialized cross tires hooked up in the mud and the bike felt balanced and quick, but seemed designed more for the road than raceday. It’s too heavy for the barriers and the v-brakes just don’t have enough mud clearance. A parts upgrade – wheels, cranks — would resolve that quickly.
