Austin is hosting the 2015 Cyclocross National Championships, on the outside chance you weren’t aware. Arriving in Texas on Tuesday I was welcomed to 70* and sun, exactly as I had hoped from the South in January.
Since Tuesday, the temperatures have slowly slipped lower, clouds have rolled in, and we’ve even endured a few passing showers.
I began shooting the course on Wednesday with the Single Speed races primarily. Mo Bruno Roy took home another Stars and Bars jersey in the women’s race, Justin Lindine took the W in style in the men’s race. Wednesday’s races were fast, dry, and pretty warm.

We didn’t spend much time at the course on Thursday, instead choosing to get some miles in wondering the trails around Barton Springs, more to come on that little adventure.
Coming onto the course on Friday the racers were greeted with short rain showers and temperatures in the upper-30’s. The ground got slippery with the surface getting a bit greasy. The course did get quite a bit slower, which led to the promoters actually cutting a few portions of the course out to bring lap times down.
