Winter has arrived, for sure…
The venue for NBX Cross in Warwick, RI is one of the most scenic of the season: Pine woods, seashore, single track, beach runs. Did I mention it was on the seashore? That also means windy and cold, especially this past weekend when winter weather actually arrived.
Challenging weather aside, it was a great weekend for the team with two podiums and Cary securing his second place overall in the Verge series – quite a feat.
The Rapha Softshells were a perfect piece of gear for the cold, rainy weather on Saturday.
It was also a day for plenty of embrocation.
