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!

SSCXWC Qualifiers: normally, that means a bunch of clipless, singlespeed warriors racing around a closed course in some city park, but this year, it was in Philly and Philly don’t fuck around. More to come, but for now, see the rest of Dylan’s photos here!
Here we go again! It’s the latest #SVENNESS video from CX Hairs! I hope this gets you amped up for a weekend of racing.

Sometimes, the course gets the best of you, or in this case, the tape! Kyle usually races singlespeed cross but with a bike like the Stinner Mudfoot edition, you can’t just let it sit around on race day. More on that bike once I get to LA next week!

The King Kog team is killing it this year up in NY, most recently at Supercross. Check out more of Chris Lee’s photos here!
California-based cycle wear company Ornot was recently at one of the Bay Area Super Prestige races and shot a great video recap. I love how orderly races like this appear, it’s like everyone has a place in queue as they race. Check out some photos from the event here.

This whole ‘cross thing is getting seriouser and seriouser each year, which is bad! Cross is really fun and that funness should be treated with kid gloves. That said, just because it’s fun, doesn’t mean it isn’t painful and majestic when in the right venue. Like say, the Northwest…. Check out some recent photos shot by Andy Bokanev here!
For this year’s SSCXWC, Raleigh designed a limited edition cross frameset, complete with the Tamland dropouts (which look damn fine). Wait, a SSCX bike with vertical dropouts? What’s going on here? Well, as per the details here on this high-tech PDF, Raleigh is actually encouraging you to chop your derailleur hanger into a bottle opener. Which, I might add, is fucking amazing.
The best part is the price: $670! Scoop one up at the SSCXWC Philly’s webstore!
Sorry for not posting these earlier, I was out riding my bike with friends. Fancy that!
