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

A Magical MoSo at Interbike 11

After Vegas and a magical Mobile Social, we’re back in Seattle and at Starcrossed today. Metafilter is there with us sponsoring the Single Speed Eliminator race. What’s that?

SSCX Eliminator is an 8-up Cross race, under the lights, with BMX rules, and 2 advance.

I’m also racing Single Speed and not sure how I’ll feel after Interbike and the kind of night that had a BMX send off, strippers on a swing set, hookers telling us good job, a female bodybuilder, puppet show, and a dog with a camera.

Another Night in Vegas. Has it Been Five Years? Six?

Flying to Vegas this morning and tonight racing CrossVegas where I’ll accept beer and dollar hand ups. Not sure if I’ll make it to the Powers v. Johnson track race, but David and Mark are already there.

We’re covering Cross, Aero, Folding, and the scene this year, including stops at the new pub in the Urban Yard.


On Thursday, we’ll work the show floor, and hangout on G+. Then that evening, talk into a microphone for the Interbike editions of the Fredcast Spokesmen. After that we’ll ride the Strip to Downtown Vegas during the Mobile Social.

Mobile Social Interbike 11 Poster

See you there. It’s been six years and a good time for a quote from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:

Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Has it been five years? Six? It seems like a lifetime, the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. But no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time in the world. Whatever it meant.

The Sun set with this stream of red light as I finished up a Cross workout. I posted the workout on G+. It included running and jumping over this fallen tree with the bike on my shoulder.

Suffer Faces at CrossVegas

Suffer Faces - There is no rational explanation for sports except that for millennia humans have worked hard to be able to work less and there’s something about the primal spirit of man (and woman) that has been lessened when we replaced a bison hunt with a trip to Target’s “food” section.

Racing is hard. It hurts. It reminds us though not that life is suffering, but that if you suffer enough there will be victory, glory and survival of your species. Racing is being alive.

Suffer Faces is our celebration of the human spirit. It’s our collection of images of people pushing themselves for a collection of points in a local race series because it feels so good to hurt. It’s our celebration of the triumph of the spirit over the deep desire to hurl one’s breakfast on the top tube.

These are our Suffer Faces and you’ll see them at CrossVegas next.

Until then, may we suggest your browse our hundreds of blogs posts about Cross dating back to 2006. Also get tips in the Vault of Cross Knowledge.

They were watching the vegetable relay race and that’s a bottle of tea, not vodka.
