Cross Crusade Series Race 7

I can’t think of a better way to spend my last day in Portland than to watch and photograph Cross Crusade. There aren’t many times that I get to venture into a muddy cross course and everything I’ve heard of Portland cyclocross is indeed true. It was a muddy, fast time with a great turn out. See more in the gallery.

    Great photos, especially the rider profiles (and the muddy headtube shots). Not really into cross but does look like fun in the mud.
