From Dirtwire TV and Cross under the lights….
We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.
Phil getting after it
Drifting with the tide, then close to shore, Sage Cycles and Lucky Envelope Brewing reached the beach at the first MFG Cross race of the 15/16 season.
Ti, disc, spec’d to race
…the wheel is rad for CX. It’s superlight, but built for offroad use. The other mega benefit is that although the original design was for use with MTB tires, as the trend towards wider rims/tire beds arrived, we ended up with a rim that was somewhat obsolete for MTB use, but ideal for CX tires. It’s a sweet combo.
Really is and that’s for Cross Country or Cyclocross.
For more on CrossVegas, see the post organized by tag, and an interview with the promoter in Issue 15 from last year.
No question the course features create a great show for the spectators but the real attraction is the quality of the fields. In both the women’s and men’s fields I have the #1 and #2 ranked riders internationally: Katie Compton and Helen Wyman on the women’s side and Lars Van der Haar and Sven Nys on the men’s side. Plus you’ve got the rest of the riders from 14 nations - it’s an international field surpassed only by the world championships.
And this year it’s been better as a World Cup.
