Reno is a shit hole. This is the unsolicited and resounding opinion given to me by friends and strangers alike in the months leading up to this year’s Cyclocross Nationals in Reno, Nevada. More or less, the transaction would play out like this. Other People: Are you going to race through to Nats? Me: Yes. Other People: Cool. Reno is a shit hole. See you there. Me: Vague staring, plus some blinking.
I’m sure CX Hairs has a full queue from the CX NATS coming through their YouTube in the next few days, but let’s kick it off with the men’s singlespeed race.

Editor’s Note: We’ll keep this intro brief because brevity is Jeff’s thing. The way I look at it, when it comes to documenting ‘cross, your photos should do the talking…
Cannondale approached me last year, wanted me on their ticket, wanted a fresh new look to their shots. So we connected, I’m doing my thang for them for 13 races, this past weekend was a target since it was Pan Am Champs, so I came over the pond and got the shots. It’s a Loose program, I do my thing, no restrictions, as it should be.
I float, I see, I shoot.
