We asked for mud and it was all mud out at the Portland International Raceway this past weekend. Mud for miles. With the sounds of motorbikes racing in the background and intermittent patches of sunlight to spot the wet weather, the Cyclocross crowds gathered to lay waste to yet another Cross Crusade race.
Dan Sharp (who was recently profiled in a portrait by Nau Clothing) was on hand to capture the mess. There were new team kits (Ladies Auxiliary to roll out. A huge jump up barrier that apparently Matt Hall (Ira Ryan Bicycles) was able to hop and our pal Landon Masterfield unfortunately was not. But the point of that is that scars are definitely in style this time of the year. Heal up!
