Jeremy Powers is no stranger to riding sandpits in UCI ‘cross races, yet he still has a love / hate relationship with each and every one.
Milliman brings another clip from the world of professional cyclocross racing with Laurens ten Dam riding in Santa Cruz, California. Watch out for the poison oak! I’m covered in that shit still…
As fate, or at least the press circuit would have it, I’m back in Santa Cruz for the Blackburn Ranger Camp. I drove up from Los Angeles a night early and crashed with my friend Garrett, from Strawfoot Handmade.
This round, time was precious, but I managed to get a few photos of his new bikes, the first being this Team Fresh Air Hunter Cycles ‘cross with a carbon seat tube. Garrett built this bike up as a strictly race machine. SRAM Force CX1 and PAUL Mini Motos with a DT / Pacenti wheelset will deliver all the reliability needed for racing in Santa Cruz, while a Sim Works’ cockpit and WTB saddle on a Sim Works post top the build off.
Balance is key for a ‘cross bike and this bike has it, both aesthetically and in terms of weight. Oh and I love the Fresh Air Cycles blue!
60 minutes of pain!
What on Earth is going on here and why hasn’t CX Hairs told us about this already?
How come they all can’t look like that? That’s a serious question. In my opinion, if ebikes looked like normal bikes, maybe they’d be accepted more? Or maybe people would use them sparingly? I am in no way endorsing ebikes. Personally, I don’t care for them, but all this “mechanical doping” discussion surrounding Femke Driessche had me thinking…
Earlier today we saw the pro men’s highlights from Hoogerheide, now it’s time for the women to take center stage!
Unsanctioned races are the best and they don’t have to end with ‘cross season.
In the latest from Milliman for Giant Bicycles, LVDH takes aim at the CX worlds…
