The Hump Hundo was such a rad time that the guys from Mudfoot are throwing the Dirty Hundo Cyclocross edition. In typical Mudfoot fashion, it’ll be a fun, but tough ride. 90 miles, 9,000′ climbing and 35 miles of dirt. We did part of this ride the other day and it’s amazing.
Head to Mudfoot to find out how you and two of your friends can ride.
If doesn’t matter how fast you are, if you have zero bike control in the dirt, you won’t enjoy yourself. This weekend, there’s a ‘cross clinic with the man that is considered the ‘original rebel’ and godfather of ‘cross in the US, Laurence Malone. (See more about him HERE.) It looks like a rad time.

March 13th – 16th brings Monster Track to NYC for the 15th year. See all the information at the event’s Facebook page. Greg Ulgalde killed it again!
This year, Texans got a true taste of what cyclocross is. We had a muddy, cold and shitty season. I wish I could have attended more races, but my travel schedule took precedence over my race schedule. Luckily, I was able to race and photograph the 2014 Texas Cyclocross State Championships this past weekend.
While there was no rain and the temperatures were in the 60′s, the winds were howling out of the southeast for most the day, sending the taped course into chaos. Saturday’s race was “skill based”, separating racers by category. 5′s through Cat 1′s and singlespeed.
What I directed my lens at was a good representation of what it’s like to race in Texas. For me, the women’s field was most impressive. They were tough and as an all-out grudge match unfolded, I watched some of the most competitive cycling of the year… Oh and fun stuff. Loads of fun stuff.

Year after year, one race promises a good time and delivers. The SSCXWC is often riddled with controversy and inclement weather, luckily this year, the latter only applied. After a successful qualifier at the Bilenky Junkyard Cross course, the racers took to the main event at another location. This year’s course was part taped, part off-road through hobo trails and singletrack. To top it off, it started snowing at the onset of the chaos. Out came the kegs, the grills and the party hats. When the dust settled, two champions reigned supreme, Adam Craig and Vicki Barclay. That’s two in a row for Craig…
Chris King’s Dylan VanWeelden is quite handy with his camera. From shooting for the Chris King blog and various products, to covering events, Dylan has his lens tuned into the Buzz. Check out a selection of his photos in the Gallery!
Year after year, Bilenky‘s Junkyard Cross brings in a varying crowd of cyclists from the party-racers to the pros. This year however, Steve and the gang played their cards a little differently, embracing the SSCXWC in Philly and throwing Junkyard Cross as the qualifier for the main event. Things got weird for sure…
Photographer Chris Lee was on the scene with his 35mm SLR and DSLR to catch all the action. Check out some selects in the Gallery!
Mission Workshop is going to have a holiday collection showcase at Golden Saddle Cyclery, beginning this Friday with the opening party. This looks like it’ll be fun. So much fun that I’m flying out for this party and soak in some SoCal Cross!

Swift Industries is having a pop up shop and video premiere at Velo Cult this Friday! Be there.
Portland’s Amanda Sundvor knows how to throw a party almost as much as she knows how to throw a race. Especially an outdoor race. In the middle of winter. In Portland! I think it’s amazing that people actually showed up, threw down $5 and raced around a freezing cold pump track and had a blast doing it. If anything, it’s a testament to how people just want to get rad year round. That’s a race party!
When I found out about the event (sorry I forgot to post the flier), I asked Brenton Salo to get out and shoot some photos. At this point, Brenton is like my Portland connection when it comes to events. If you see that man around town, buy him a coffee or a glass of whiskey!
