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.

Miss cross season yet? This video was shot at the 2014 Villarocca cross race in Italy. The full movie will be screened at the 2014 Cross Crusade International Film Festival in Portland this year.
When I saw coverage from Soudal Classics Cyclocross Series, all I could think was one thing: dream course. That’s the kind of cross races I love… You know, the ones that look like MTB races. #SVENNESS is killing it this season!
Yes, it’s good. Why wouldn’t it be good. In fact, the coverage from CX Nats over at Manual for Speed is great. I love the interview with Walton and Evan.
What are you waiting for? Check it out at Manual for Speed.
Another weekend, another CX Hairs presentation:
“For episode 2.15, SVENNESS makes a stop at the Belgian National Cyclocross Championships, which took place at the Gaverbeek Hippodrome in Waregem, West Flanders, Belgium. The race takes place on a flat track with several flyovers and drainage ditches. It is a bit muddy and there is one long stretch of sand that plays an important role in this race.
We focus on the sand, the planks, the attrition of an already small field and the solidification of a legend. For the Belgian elite race, only racers who have full-time contracts are allowed to compete. That means the field is only 14 deep. The elites without contracts race a minute after the full-time pros start their race.”

I’ve been looking all over for nice, bright, sharp photos from CX Nats and Meg’s have been the best so far. Head over to her Flickr for a nice selection.
Ok, so this means that cross is over right? Which means #CrossisComing…
I have no idea what these photos have to do with cyclocross but I love it! Manual for Speed gets weird with NYC Velo, Castelli and Evan Murphy. I love the selfie photo!

I have no idea what I just watched. It seems to be a viral marketing campaign for some kind of weird 29′r cyclocross hybrid bike with stoppy silver pie plates and colored moving parts. Whatever it is, I like the part with beer.
