KMC Cyclocross Festival #1 Elite Men – HTRWW x BTB

10 Oct

Not sure if conditions in the Men’s race made it to “muddy”, but things were definitely slick.

9 Oct

A lovely New England style deterioration from damp and tacky to slick and loose. Three flyovers per lap, including an extremely steep side-by-side setup, one just following a set of stairs. No surprise on the winner, but tightly-fought battles from there down.

How The Race Was Won x BTB TV – Cross Vegas Women 2014

19 Sep

Cyclocross in the desert in mid-September. You know my feelings on this. And yet, an incrementally improving course and progressively more legit line-up has really raised the quality over the years.
