Behind THE Barriers: Season 4, Episode 9 — Heading to Derby City

Pin It

Behind THE Barriers rolls into Louisville, Kentucky, hot on the heels of Tim Johnson for The Mudfund Derby City Cup. Tim was instrumental in the continued success of the Derby City Cup, with Tim’s Mudfund stepping in at the eleventh hour to become the title sponsor of the weekend. While in Louisville, we take a brief timeout to take a trip to the tattoo parlor, where Jess Heenan, wife of Rapha-Focus manager Mike Heenan, and Sam, usually behind the camera, get some fresh ink. On course, Tim takes some time out to lead a group of local junior riders in a skills clinic, hoping to get more young riders excited about cyclocross. Two hard days of racing follow, with Tim’s Cannondale p/b Ryan Trebon taking the win on Saturday and Jeremy Powers of Rapha-Focus taking the win on Sunday. In between, Behind THE Barriers hangs out with the cast of characters that makes up the Cannondale p/b team, and finds out what makes one of the best teams in the country click!
