2015 CX Nats and the lack thereof!

*brought to you by Uber, a ride you can always count on but only sometimes remember
I was looking forward to the Cyclocross Nationals being held in Austin for a while. The universe allowed my circus of a life to be intertwined with this grand occasion.  So, I traveled to Austin to meet up with the fine folks of Ham Cycles to do what we do best on a certain numbered street.

My plan was to capture an EPIC photo set to start 2015. Saturday got that going as we pedaled out to see the collegiate races. They were killing it! Weather conditions made the course quite a challenge for all racers (and organizers, as we all later noticed) but spectators were still out in full effect.

Saturday was the first day I made it out to the races. I managed to get a feel for the park and a few good photos. Being immersed in the excitement and chaos that comes with a race of this magnitude was awesome and overwhelming! It was so lovely to meet some new people and see others that I hadn't seen in a while. 

*This is my first gif ever and 2015 is the year of the gif.

 

We pedaled back to the rendezvous point in the cold wet drizzle (no photos because my frozen hands were useless), freshened up and got fancy cheese plates and pizza at Bufalina #Don'tBelieveTheHype. After all that it was time to do more of what we do best.

After another night on the town, we were up nice and early with our minds set on seeing competitors battle it out on the last day of racing. That was all cut short with the initial, alleged "cancellation" and later "postponement" of the races for reasons you all surely have heard or know of by now. No further comments needed. 

 

#Disappointment

 

It was still a good, fun weekend. Hey guys, don't F@%# up CX nats next year.

 

Sincerely,

Everyone

BANDIT CROSS

The cross keeps coming. Yeah, so HEAVYPEDAL is presenting this race series and the final race is a CX race. That's cool because Houston could always use another CX race. From what I've heard this race will be a fun race. If you want to race this race, click here to register for this race. You can also heckle at this race or just spectate this race.

2014 Terra X CX

So I competed in my first Cyclocross race ever. More on that later. For now, coverage. The weather sucked but the race was awesome. It was nice to see so many spectators and particpators. The best part, LADIES. They were out in full force on the course. It ain't #WonderfulWomenWednesday but hey. Click here to digg the photo set.
