It’s that time of year again! CX Hairs returns with #SVENNESS, Cross Vegas edition.
Let me begin this by saying this is by no means a pitty party post (PPP), it’s more of an open letter, or apology – the latter of which I’m still not sure I owe to anyone, but it’s easier to make mends than it is to carve a soap box from stone. And I suck at using a chisel.
Neko snapped his chain, right out of the gate and still pulled off one of the best times of the day at the UCI Downhill WC, landing him in 4th place overall. All this kinda makes that bad luck 13 number suddenly seem quite lucky. I can’t stop watching this.
Thanks for sharing this video, Neil!
There are some weird, strange places on the internet and Manual for Speed is one of them. Not many media outlets can tackle Las Vegas into submission, but these two put out a damn good effort. See the Las Vegas Red Carpet post and the Cross Vegas coverage at Manual for Speed.
Also, surely you can see the difference between Daniel and I, right?
In the wake of #CrossGate2014, Tim Johnson sent this over. Thanks for sharing buddy!
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!
Ratboy takes us along on his way down in Hafjell at the UCI WCH… Literally. #RubberSideUp!
“This film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, is about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success…”
If you missed this one when it aired, you can now watch it online, for free.
… but we knew that already, right? This is a great video!
