The 2014 Trek CXC Cup Pro Women
Words and photos by Kevin Sparrow

With a heavy thunderstorm moving through overnight I was secretly hoping for some mud. Turns out, the sun made another appearance late in the day making for almost identical conditions as the Saturday races. The wind did seem to kick it up a notch however.
Some of the biggest names in Women’s Pro cyclocross were in town and I’d be damned if I’d miss shooting some of the best athletes in the world.

Katie Compton, Georgia Gould, Gabby Durrin, Meredith Miller, Caroline Mani were all favorites for Sunday’s race.

The first couple laps there was a lot of bottlenecking going on. A group started to form in the front all heavy hitters. After the third lap Compton found her way to the front and never looked back. Gould chased but couldn’t seem to reconnect with Compton. Caroline Mani put in another huge effort, this time ending up taking third place.
Damn good show.

Trans Provence: Day One and Oh So Long

Come on! As the season turns and leafs give up their perch the men and women on the Trans Provence race to the coast and the promise of long topless hours on the French Riviera. Radavist favorite and all around shred master Mr. Ty “Wide Smile” Hathaway is abroad and on board his Bronson, finishing 18th after the first day of racing.

He is up against some fast competition with Jerome Clementz back to his winning ways after missing the majority of the enduro season with an injury. Unfortunatley the peoples champion,  “Silverback” Sven Martin, took a digger on day one that has taken himself out of the race. Looks like he will be spending the rest of his time sampling the terroir rather then the terrian, as we are sure he will make time to refresh his knowledge of the fine local French wines.

The Warriors Fun Ride Intro

Back in the 90’s Squid threw a themed event called the Warriors race. Just like the movie, it was a team event and took people all over NYC. This year, he brought the event back, in the form of a fun ride and Takuya Sakamoto was there shooting video.

I can’t wait to see more from this!
