How the Race Was Won x BTB TV – Trek Cyclocross Collective Cup 2013

Sep 26 2013

This week’s Behind the Barriers feature is the Trek CX Collective Cup—it’s the first-ever running of the event, so you can understand some of my confusion on the exact details. Despite the seemingly ad-hoc venue (Trek HQ!) and firm conditions, the sharp elevation changes and thoughtful tape routing made for a selective and hard-fought event.

After last week, no surprise that Cannondale/’s Ryan Trebon wasn’t shy about coming to the front and flexing the watts. But a much earlier selection this time around opened the door for lots more tactical probing, from riders young (Cal Giant’s Yannick Eckmann) and old (Cannondale/’s Tim Johnson), and the buzz of activity spared no contender a few nervous moments on the ropes.

    Loving these CX HTRWW editions. As a Euro -Roadie I’ve no idea who these guys are or what they’re doing, but thanks for the entertainment anyway!

    I have no idea what this means as I don’t know cyclocross. Sill entertaining but I’d rather have HTRWWs on teh World and Lombardia in the coming weeks.

    Really hope to see a htrww on the worlds race, as that was an epic bike race full of tactics and drama.
