It’s that time of year again! CX Hairs returns with #SVENNESS, Cross Vegas edition.
If you’re in Austin and want a friendly introduction to cyclocross racing, or you just wanna come out and party, check out the Beat the Clock Cycling and Cycleast Urbocross series. I’ll be there struggling to keep up with you!

This looks like a jammin’ time!
Cross Vegas is the official kick-off for American cyclocross season, in my opinion anyway. It’s raucous, rowdy and best of all, FUN! The highlight of the evening for me is the Wheelers and Dealers event where industry reps and shop peeps battle head to head for a place on the podium next to Craig Etheridge – who wins every year.
The crowd loves it. Everyone’s doing handups, toss ups, spraying beer, hecking and this year, like it does every year, it carried on well into the UCI race. This year’s event drew big names like Lars van der Haar and Sven Nys – maybe you’ve heard of them? At any rate, these pros had an introduction to the party time that is Cross Vegas and yes, things got out of hand.
Thanks to everyone who hung out and made the evening an enjoyable one!
Hopefully I can track down Katie before cross vegas to shoot this bike because it looks great. Thanks to Adam from Stanridge for sending this one over…

“If disc brakes were meant for road and cross bikes, Paul would have made them…”
Truth is truth and I’ve seen the light. Literally. I have a set of these and unfortunately, I didn’t have time to put any miles on them yet but I can assure you, they look and feel amazing. Like all of Paul’s brakes, they’re machined and finished to the highest of standards.
You should know however, that Paul is marketing these for road and cross bikes only at the time being…
Expect a review once I get back to Austin and if you’re going to Interbike, roll through their booth 15030.

I don’t know if you’re heard or not, but ripping through the woods on a cross bike is a lot of fun. The guys at Brothers Cycles made a fun little video promoting their Kepler cross frame.
