I had a great time today…the cold rain helped. A great flowing course and warm bathrooms!
The low branches, off camber hills and tree stumps made you think the whole time!
First uber-muddy cross race for me, I don’t think you can have anymore fun that that with your pants on…
That was spectacular! I can’t even remember how many times I fell. Tamales and Coffee, yes yes yes.
I just blew some mud out my nose.
yeah… made you think “i’m goin down”
had a ball, thenks everyone!
Apologies to the guy that spun out in front of me in 40+, resuling in me riding over his bike, and me placing my toe spiked foot squarely in his chest. I feel shame and hope you’re OK.
My last race of my first season, and good god damn what a blast it was. In spite of how many times I fell and slipped around, that mud might’ve been the most fun bit of racing. Gonna need a new pair of muscle-print leggings though!
Link to a few images from today. No race shots will follow. I’m more of a PJ shooter than a sports shooter. Feel free to download or screen cap the images for any use you see fit. I only ask for a small photo credit when and where you share them.
so much awesome today. Thanks for all the hard work, everyone. Glad the coffee got put to good use too.
Super fun race today! Thanks all around to Cuttin’ Crew and Robots for the great vibes and cool course. Jensen’s rain dance appeared to have worked. Cheers!
Did anyone find a pearl izumi black leg warmer size small i am missing one?
I believe we have one at Comrade Cycles. We took the lost and found stuff there. I’ll confirm tomorrow.
Lost and found muddy stuff is at Comrade Cycles. Full inventory tomorrow, but I know we have some Garneau jackets and gloves, a black Columbia jacket, some Pony Shop arm (or leg?) warmers, and one clear rain jacket.
Man, let me tell you. It was really hard photographing today. There was equipment to worry about getting wet, mud to avoid, and the lighting conditions were terrible.
Photography is super easy compared to what you all did today. Congratulations to everyone who started a race for being awesome. Special props to those who finished. Thanks for letting me capture some of it on film.
and the FB summary.
Let me know if you’d like anything on the former to appear on the latter.
can you put that picture of me (tron skinsuit) on facebook? thanks
Any chance you can throw that photo of me (muscle print leggings) onto Facebook? Thanks for coming out and shooting, always appreciate the photogs that catch us doing our thing.
They have both been added to the gallery.
so much mud! awesome time. best part was the bike cops riding the course afterwards!
Here’s a photo of the lost and found clothes. Please come by the shop and pick it up this week, anything left over will be donated.
You all are the best! Thank you everyone for taking your Saturday to be outside in the cold rain and mud all in the name of cyclocross. Can’t wait to do it again next year.

Great course, event and weather! Now that is what Cyclocross is all about! Thanks for an awesome Saturday of racing. Anyone have photos of the 40+ race?
Here are a bunch of pics from the 4s. They are far from professional and a lot of them are myself but there are a lot of others mixed in too.
A few soggy images from Masters’ & Women’s races.
