Issue 18 Puddles Are Gathering

Katusha in Showers Pass

An issue about how heavy rain weighs on our minds drops on iTunes and the web today with these articles from me, Patrick Brady, Zanne Blair, Kyle Ranson, and Matt Haughey.

The story by Kyle I first heard at Interbike during a Showers Pass media meeting and asked them to share it in our magazine. It’s the free cover story and about a small Portland company supplying a Tour de France team.

One otherwise average February day in Portland, Oregon, Showers Pass got a call from Team Katusha’s promoters. The spring classics were just around the corner, and the racers were in desperate need of some decent rain jackets.

Berlin Wall by Bike


This one time we rode along the Berlin Wall, checked in at Checkpoint Charlie, and rode a free Freitag fix.

Visited a famous shop and also noticed the fashion. Berlin is truly a great bike city and today they’re celebrating the fall of the wall, 25 years ago.

An unReal Tease


We see you there. Stuck in the real world. Staring blankly at your computer screen. Hoping to find something, anything, to take you away. It’s time to let your friends at Teton Gravity Research & Anthill Films transport you to a place beyond the real world. #theunRealmovie - Coming Summer 2015.

Then! Cam McCaul goes on the Weather Channel to talk about it.

UCI CX in the Pacific Northwest

Pro men racing

MFG Cyclocross has been so busy working on bringing the previously cancelled UCI race to the Pacific Northwest, they didn’t send out a press release, like they normally do before a big event.

Not unlike CX Worlds in Louisville that was bailed out by Papa Johns, the event was “saved” by a unnamed California who asked that participants donate to water charities. Here’s their Facebook announcing the dates of 12/6 - 7.

We are fortunate to have a friend in California who has graciously decided to personally fund the title sponsorship for the weekend. With his support, we are able to do great work, and keep UCI racing in the Northwest. In exchange for his support, he has simply asked that we bring awareness to and help support an organization that he firmly believes in: Waves For Water.

Granting the Californian’s wish and with a big thank you, here’s what Waves for Water is about:

We work on the front-line to provide clean water to communities in need around the world. We work with world leaders and strategic partners who take a no-nonsense attitude toward making global change.


Sounds good to us; especially in the land of plentiful water. Been around the sport long enough to know the work, dedication, and effort these events require.

And us amateurs

We’ll race that weekend and report from the big show. Here’s a selection of photos from past Starcrosseds (MFG’s previous UCI races) and who can forget Joey?!.
