CX Worlds: The Rest of the Story


Propane heater to unfreeze the mud-grass horse

The feature I shot and wrote about CX Worlds for Wired is up with the lines, “Those struggling to keep up were doused by their own blood and tears, the foam of beers fans hoisted in encouragement and the mud kicked up by the riders in front of them. The grassy mud coating their bikes and bodies could have been formed into bricks to build their hut of shame.”

The most cowbell

In what was a week at Cross Fantasy camp, the rest of the story includes mechanics like Chandler who heated bikes to bang the mud off, the Cowbell Crusader, and a years supply of Suffer Faces with snotcicles. Fans too, like the CX Girls.
