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

Cyclocross back in NYC

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.

Learning to Win Cyclocross

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.

Hugger-Cross at Monroe - Single Speed Style

Cross Downhill (Photo Credit Matt Morrisson) Sunday was beautiful. It hasn’t rained in a few days - so where did all that damn mud come from?

Rapha Cyclocross Roller Races

These photos and recap of the Oregon Manifest Roller Races are brought to you by bike hugging Flickr contributor, David Schloss:

Oregon Manifest (the excellent hand-built bicycle/Oregon cultural experience we attended this weekend) isn’t just about the semi-serious world of beautiful custom frames, it’s also about the hard-core, no- nonsense competitive world of ‘Cross racing.

Take, for example the Rapha Cross Rollers Race held on Saturday. Take four fixed gears mounted to rollers, connect them to a big cycle computer showing the distances for all four bikes, and have waves of riders compete for the top spot. Pretty standard right? That’s why the Rapha guys threw in not only copious amounts of beer, but a ‘cross portion that required racers to dismount after they completed 500 meters of on-bike sprinting and pick up a kids bike from a pile, which they then had to portage around the indoor course.
