A Little Taste of the ‘Crusade (Cyclocross Video Footage)

A quick update to yesterday’s race report, and some video candy.

Turns out I placed 19th in a field of 58 which isn’t as terrible as I’d thought. Hell, I’ll even go so far as to say that I’m happy about it! And in case you’re one of those readers who has no idea what I’m talking about when I talk about all this cyclocross crap, here’s a little taste of what went down yesterday at Alpenrose Dairy in Portland, Oregon.  I’ve also included some photos at the bottom of this entry.

The beginner women’s category was HUGE.  This is the start.

Ty flies by.

Ben handles a tricky turn.
