Huggacast 75a: Cyclocross Finale

Part 1 of video from the Single Speed mens race at the Seattle Cyclocross Finale. Shown from the Sand Pit Run Up and barriers. Part 2 features more racing, commentary, and will post later today.

Big props to the racers out there, in a very hard series, racing for the win, as Pam said afterwards, “Cross is not a poseur sport.”

Thanks to Redline for supporting us with Cross bikes, including the Single Speed prototype, and reassuring me that I didn’t have a flat for 2 laps.

Huggacast 73: Single Speed Cross

Huggacast 73 (available in high quality) features video from the Seattle Cyclocross race at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. Andrew and I raced single speeds. As I learned, on a single speed, it’s all about pedaling and technique. I wasn’t fast, but I think rode a good race. Steady, no crashes, and making room for those in contention.

As seen in our photostream, Redline is considering bringing a SS to market in 09 and I raced on a prototype (converted) single-speed Redline Conquest Pro
