I always end up missing CX Hairs’ #SVENNESS series when I travel. Just to make sure you’re all caught up, here’s 2.12, which is a night race and 2.11, from the World Cup race that took place in Koksijde, Belgium is below. The perfect watch for a rainy and cold Saturday.

I met Matt on one of the Friday Morning Caffeine Hustle rides in Los Angeles a few months back and bumped into him again at last weekend’s SoCal cross where he was shooting photos. At this point, there are so many photographers at cross races, that I just focus on the stuff I enjoy the most. Pretty easy to see what that is here…
Check out more of Matt’s photos on his Flickr!
I shot photos of this bike back at Crossvegas but first, Ryan wasn’t pumped on the build and I wasn’t that stoked on my photos. So last weekend at SoCalCross, I stole it yet again to shot more photos. This time around, I think we’re both stoked.
Paul Mini Motos, Thomson, Chris King and that bright orange-red frame make this Stoemper one of my favorite SSCX bikes I’ve shot this year! And Ryan is living the (team) dream. That is, until he fell and lost a bar plug during the race.
At any rate, see more of this beauty in the Gallery!
Bandit Cross is a hell of a time. It’s a race with no rules and just the right amount of fun. Check out this video from All-City!
Year after year, one race promises a good time and delivers. The SSCXWC is often riddled with controversy and inclement weather, luckily this year, the latter only applied. After a successful qualifier at the Bilenky Junkyard Cross course, the racers took to the main event at another location. This year’s course was part taped, part off-road through hobo trails and singletrack. To top it off, it started snowing at the onset of the chaos. Out came the kegs, the grills and the party hats. When the dust settled, two champions reigned supreme, Adam Craig and Vicki Barclay. That’s two in a row for Craig…
Chris King’s Dylan VanWeelden is quite handy with his camera. From shooting for the Chris King blog and various products, to covering events, Dylan has his lens tuned into the Buzz. Check out a selection of his photos in the Gallery!
Year after year, Bilenky‘s Junkyard Cross brings in a varying crowd of cyclists from the party-racers to the pros. This year however, Steve and the gang played their cards a little differently, embracing the SSCXWC in Philly and throwing Junkyard Cross as the qualifier for the main event. Things got weird for sure…
Photographer Chris Lee was on the scene with his 35mm SLR and DSLR to catch all the action. Check out some selects in the Gallery!
How about some U23 action in the latest #SVENNESS brought to you by CX Hairs!
You know me, I have a softspot for purple and for Speedvagens. Vanilla just posted up these photos from their 2012 Surprise Me cross bike paint scheme and it’s amazing. Head over to their Flickr for more!

SSCXWC Qualifiers: normally, that means a bunch of clipless, singlespeed warriors racing around a closed course in some city park, but this year, it was in Philly and Philly don’t fuck around. More to come, but for now, see the rest of Dylan’s photos here!
Here we go again! It’s the latest #SVENNESS video from CX Hairs! I hope this gets you amped up for a weekend of racing.
