  • Echelon Gran Fondo and Cyclocross Magazine’s Day in the Hood: “CrossMountain” Dirt Ride

    ©Cyclocross Magazine

    by Robbie Carver There aren’t too many rides that begin with a helicopter buzzing the start line. Then again, there aren’t too many rides that include an ex-marine handing you a semi-automatic and telling you that hitting the bull’s-eye will…

  • Is Joey Really OK? Joey Speaks Up and Tells His Story – Updated

    Joey hit the ground hard, but he's OK! Craig Fowler

    There have been a lot of questions asked and many things assumed about my “incident.” Allow me to set the record straight. My name is Joey Mullan, and I crashed on my bike. As for the intensity of the crash, wow! I have raced singlespeed cyclocross for the past three seasons, this being my fourth. I don’t consider myself a roadie, a mountain biker or a BMX kid. I do it all, but I consider myself a cyclocrosser, 100%.

  • Cross Clash: Johnson Takes Powers in the Battle of the Titans on the Interbike Mini-Velodrome

  • Psychlo-Mom In The Kitchen: Earth-Shaking Granola Recipe


    Earthquake?! Feh.

    That was our sexy MAC cyclocrossers warming up! We’re three weeks away from ’cross season … so boys are crashing through city parks and then running from the cops seconds before they get told to leave. You can feel it now, right? What you eat matters, and now is the time to start experimenting with what goes down easy and stays down, what keeps you going and what revives you so that you can get up and do it all over again the next day. So, I’m baaaaack, because what you eat, when you eat it and how it performs occupies so much of my brain space that I thought I might as well get it out here with the only other people I know who aren’t on Weight Watchers: cyclocrossers.

  • Friday Feature: The Great Coffee Debate

    The great coffee debate is raging in the Cowbell forums, will you weigh in?

    Almost as much as beer, coffee is a part of cyclocross, and cycling in general. Coffee snobbery is fairly common at races, though the Dunkin’ Donuts run remains a time-honored tradition for some teams. This week on the Cowbell Forum, we had a member ask for coffee suggestions, and the forum went crazy. The great coffee debate, labeled “Coffee Anyone” had answers ranging from tiny fair trade roasters to more traditional blends.

    Tour de France Fantasy League for cyclocross

    Fantasy Tour de France for cyclocrossers is here!
