Before racers pin their numbers on and line up, here’s a gallery of photos from Woodland, our fav race of the year in the Pacific Northwest. DBC Photography and Woodinville bike shop shared these with us, including Mark V and me racing single speeds. See the rest of the photos on G+ and Flickr.
This set up worked well. A 40T 130mm bcd ring swapped out for the 44T. 10sp rear wheels with SS spacer kits, and modified Salsa “Tuggnut” axle tug.
Why is Woodland so good? I asked Matt from Crosssports…
It’s pretty simple. Location, atmosphere, course design, and occasionality are the essential elements for a special cross race, and WP scores pretty close to a 10 on all.
