This is it, the final race of the year for #SVENNESS. This one takes place in Hoogerheide, Netherlands for the 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Championship. Surely by now you’ve seen how brutal this course was, so sit back and enjoy!
Excellent job this year, CX Hairs!

After making my last post, Emily Sent me her photos for Rapha, which are up on the Rapha Facebook. Head on over and check them out!
So… from drop bears, utes, sunburns, #Upgradecreds and other ‘Strayan things, Manual for Speed jumped on a flying machine and headed over to Dubai for the Dubai Tour. While this Tour Team Presentation post is cute, I love the non-photo essay on Emirati Women.

With all of the carnage (seriously look at that link) at this year’s race, it’s been dubbed the “cyclocrash world championships”. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed more wrecks in a race before.
I can’t wait to see what Emily Maye has from that event! For now, this will have to do!
While America watches grown men wearing spandex slam into each other repetedly tonight (no, it’s not a Cat 5 road crit), I’m more stoked on hearing that the ASO announced there will be a women’s race at the 2014 Tour de France. Also, I thought it was coincidental that this documentary came across my radar last week…
Half the Road is a documentary that explores the world of women’s professional cycling and why there is a great deal of inequality in the sport. But it’s not a solely a call for action, it also features Kathryn Bertine’s quest to make the 2012 Olympics. You can read about it more here and donate here!
I don’t get too geeked out by pro cycling but man, I love watching this man ride his bike.
Wiggo’s got quite the following all over the world, including Fred Perry. The Tour de France winner and 7 time Olympic medalist just announced his newest Collection. Head on over to Fred Perry to see more.
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!
Somehow, yesterday I missed out on posting about Manual for Speed’s exceptional coverage of the Tour Down Under. So, if you haven’t caught up yourself, check out Stage 4 and Stage 5!
In what critics are calling “the best Manual for Speed post in 23.9 hours”, Daniel has continued to explore the various euphemisms of Australia, while working on his own Drop Bear impersonation. The Tour Down Under seems to be going a little better for Manual for Speed. See for yourself at Day 03′s coverage of the TDU.
