We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.
If you’re looking to do a bit of brush up before the race you can get some tips from Jonathan Page and Frank McCormack on Friday (28th) and Saturday (29th). Herriott Sports Performance and Cascade Bicycle Studio will be hosting the Jonathan Page Cyclocross Weekend, including two 3 hour workshops on Saturday and a evening presentation and auction on Friday. Page is America’s premiere cross racer and the best American in history in this discipline. Great chance to see a master at work!
I got the family ready early Saturday morning for Starcrossed. My 5 year old picked out a boiled wool coat, winter mittens, and pink cowboy boots (nee shitkickers). The incredibly good weather was not just surprising, but left me flat out broke for the mud-faced splatterfest I’d promised. Regardless, we all had a great time watching the races. The crowd was very friendly, and I managed to get in a few photos (bikehugger photostream!) during the races. Great teamwork by some of leaders in the Mens 3/4 35+ category, with a team from Boston taking the early lead.
Now that the rain’s arrived in the pacific northwest I think it’s safe to say Cyclocross season’s officially underway. A couple of races went down last weekend. SeattleCyclocross.com has a good run down of local upcoming events on their schedule. Personally, I’m hoping to make it out to Starcrossed next weekend.
I couldn’t believe it either, when I read that John Spurgeon road RAAM on a single speed built by Ira Ryan cycles in Portland. I was checking in on the results, there’s a mention, and Bike Portland posted earlier on it as well…
To me that’s sorta like using a fully-loaded track bike to tour, but then again the roadies I know probably think the Bettie is stupid.
