This past weekend Mock Orange Bikes, co-sponsor of the SmartStop/Mock Orange Bikes p/b Ridley cyclocross team, hosted the North Carolina state championships on a classic, muddy, Euro-worthy course in Winston-Salem’s Washington Park. Local favorite and rising national star, Travis Livermon, won both days, because he hasn’t not won a cross race in a month or so—it’s just that kinda party with him…maybe it’s the mustache?
The mud was splashy, the flyover was world-class, the hills hurt, the beer flowed, and the sun was shining, because that’s just how we roll in NC. If you’ve been wondering if it’s worth the trip south to check out some January cross racing in the NCCX series, the answer is a resounding yes.
