Providence Cyclocross Festival HTRWW Slide

Some big names came out to play at the Providence Cyclocross (I don’t hyphenate) Festival last weekend. Double points going fifteen deep at this UCI C1, a tight and surprisingly hard-racing course that brought out the selections early—though not so early that the always-important start proved decisive.

While I’m not sure the podium would have played any differently on a more open course, the race also provided a good example of how the technical aspects of cyclocross sometimes invert the road racing logic of keeping your nose out of the wind.
