Tyler Farrar at the Tour Down Under

The news from the TDU today is that a fan gave Tyler Farrar his bike and shoes after a crash. Tyler went on to finish with no penalty – there’s a rule against taking a nonteam bike, but hey, it’s the TDU? Who’s paying that much attention. According to the Adelaide Advertiser, Anthony Tooman, gave Tyler his shoes because of the mismatch between Shimano and Speedplay.

“We could see him (Farrar) on the side of the road and asked ‘do you need a wheel?’ and he said ‘na, a wheel is not going to cut it’,” Tooman last night told The Advertiser.

“Then it went to ‘well, what pedals are you running?’

There isn’t video of the bike and shoe swap, but see the reporting of the crash here with an unlucky racer upside down on the side of the road.

I haven’t seen Tyler since we raced cross together, but he grew up in Washington state and I watched he come up through the ranks. During that race he said, “On your left Bro” and, “F this is hard.”

Great to see Tyler back in the news, now let’s hope for something better than a crash…..



CX Nats Edit

U.S. Cyclocross Nationals 2016 Highlights from In The Crosshairs on Vimeo.

Quite possibly the best CX course ever, in the States at least…and nice drone work.

Preparation

A video from a few years ago, but still relevant to the work it takes to become a world champ like Sven did in 2013. A win I watched on assignment for Wired. While CX is pretty much over in the states, Worlds is later this month on the 31st.

Your Grandma Races Cross (You Wish)

If you’ve ever thought, “wish my Grandmother raced cross,” here’s an inspiration for you AND grandma…Nancy Brown wins the 70-74 age group at CX Nats and did it to, just “Beat some other old women.”

Trek Boone: Rough Road Ahead

hhgh

Shook off CES and Vegas riding the Boone in Seattle. Since I last shared photos of it, added PDW fenders, a Velo Orange rack, and custom camera bag. Switched the stock wheels for Easton tubeless with Hutchinson tires too.

With this setup, I’m ready for the rough road ahead and wherever the bike and camera takes me. It’s just not on a cross course, but out in the woods and desert.
