Providence Cyclocross Festival 2014 – Links, Photos, Video

Providence was perhaps the best Cylocross race I have been at in terms of organizers planning for a festival and full weekend of events. With 1200+ racers and 8000+ spectators the numbers tell the story. Exiting courses, food vendors, and beer gardens make for a super weekend of spectating .

I wasn’t feeling super over the weekend but managed some mid pack finishes and enjoyed the beer garden jump and a few laps with Mike Garrigan on Day 2.

Canadian Cyclocross Nationals Winnipeg 2014

Goal Achieved ! I have Cyclocross UCI Points ! … actually goal was to wear Knee warmers, go big on the ‘grassy knoll booter’ and then rub my knee warmers on McSneeky until he started fighting me so that I could jersey him and tell him to stop judging people … and that was achieved.

In any case, a great race venue and organization and very fun course. Mike Garrigan and Catherine Pendrel won in the elite fields.

Canadian CYcling Magazine Story from 2014 Canadian CX Nationals Winnipeg 

Mike Garrigan won his second nationals ( he won in 2007 as well) which is awesome. He was sad at the finish because he thought he had lapped me out … this was not the case. His video interview(s) below from PedalMag (includes kabush and Mike V. interviews)

Rochester Ellison Park Cyclocross Race 2014 PB Trek – Report, Photos, Links

A Great weekend in Rochester NY for the Full Moon Vista – Ellison Park CX – Presented by Trek

The weekend started with a Skills clinic that Molly and I Co-Instructed with The Durrins, Jeremy Durrin and Gabby Durrin (nee Day). We had a great mix of abilities and our split between a more foundational look at skills and cross with the Durrins taking the more race oriented folks on a more tactical and course specific session (sneaking skill work in as it is just as important for the advanced folks!).

Night Weasels – Wed. Night Cross race in Massachusetts USA During 'Holy Week of Cross'

Perhaps one of the best events I have been too. I finished 12 or 13th and Justin Lindine somehow put a lot of time into me to win on the slippery course.

So many people out on a Wednesday night to race cyclocross in the rain !

Great pricing, course and organization .

I rode the stairs (4 uphill logs) and was psyched that the organizer put up a $100 Gift Card Prime for the first Lady to ride them (Mical Dyck took it !)

How to Dismount Indoor Rollers (with style)

Worried about falling off rollers ? practicing getting off before you need to is a great drill and way to pass time indoor training as well. Make sure it benefits your outdoor riding by using techniques we would use indoors .

Remember your wall , credenza and Mom won’t be there to catch you outside ! (use your feet!)
