Cyclocross is, to me anyway, more visually interesting than road racing, especially when it’s through the lens of Manual for Speed. Jingle Cross lives in infamy for being a really, really, really, cold and tough race, both of which is evident in Manual for Speed’s Part 1 and Part 2 of their coverage… Check it out!
The 2014 Surf City Cyclocross Finals
Words and photos by Brian Vernor
My own history of racing cyclocross with the Surf City Cyclocross Series is too long to recount in a short article. In brief, Surf City Cyclocross is why I made my first film, Pure Sweet Hell (which premiered ten years ago this month), and why I have kept cyclocross near to my heart since my first race as a junior in 1993.
There are many heartlands of cyclocross. I’ve been to Belgium, Spain, Holland, Japan, and all over the United States, searching for the best action, beautiful courses, and the cult-like communities which make up the cross scene in each of those unique cyclocross heartlands. I appreciate all of them, but I appreciate none of them more than my own scene. That’s how it should be. People here in Santa Cruz have doggedly stuck to the core of what is cyclocross in America. Cyclocross is a contradiction; it sucks to do, and it’s glorious to have done it. Cyclocross will never have the audience and participation of football, basketball, or baseball, though we involved are always trying to grow it while keeping it true. Truth comes first and growth comes second.
These days, you rarely see anything positive written about bikes in online news sites. With cycling in American cities on a steady climb, drivers are having to learn to cope with more people on bicycles in “their streets”.
With all the distractions offered by cell phone use and excessive multi-tasking while driving, often times this results in car on bike accidents. Some drivers will stop upon striking a cyclist, but there are hundreds of hit and run cases each year in Los Angeles… Which is what sparked this great online piece.
Head over to LA Times to check it out! I love the portraits.
a skid a day!
Well, we’re back! It was a fun, windy and sunny time but we made it home mostly in one piece. Expect updates to the site all day tomorrow and once I get my film developed, I’ll post up our route, as well as some selects.
I hope you had a great weekend!
