A Cross Season Benediction, Almost

It’s hard to believe that the cyclocross season is coming to a close. It seems like just yesterday that we prepped our bikes for the upcoming season, frantically gluing tubulars and fine-tuning cantis. There was mud and there was sand, with the occasional beer or cupcake hand up, too. How can we forget about the resulting cross hangover on Mondays as most of us sunk back in to our day jobs, stalking the internet for results and photos as we nursed our aching bodies?

Even though our national champions are crowned, it's hard not to remain excited with the United States hosting its first ever cyclocross World Championship in February. I hope to see some of you in Louisville, and as the countdown to Worlds begins, I present to you images from the Superprestige Hamme-Zogge and Jaamarktcross Niel back in November.

In stark contrast to this past weekend's mud-fest in Gloucester, the Sun Prairie USGP race in Wisconsin was a dry, fast affair. Our man, Josh Garlich was there, soaking up the atmosphere of the first big race of the year.





















 

Rochester Cross

All the training has paid off leading into the cyclocross season. The long days on the bike, the early nights to get the necessary recovery, and all the other things that comes along with trying to become a top level cyclocross racer. A second place at the first UCI cross race of the year is everything that I could have wanted. It was a hard fought battle with several other racers, but I was confident that my fitness is at another level this year. Coming into the last section of the course with a gap over 3rd place helps to erase all the pain that is shooting through my legs… In fact you completely forget about everything else and lose yourself in the moment that you dream about. 2nd place is my best placing in a UCI cross race and it came against some incredible competition with the likes of Jon Page, Bazin, Lindine, Richey, and Wells.

Perfect start to the season. It will only keep getting better throughout the season.

Thanks to our friend Molly Hurford at Cyclocross Magazine for some of the above images.
