The UCI races in China are a wrap. Today we look at the top three American’s bikes during the two stations, which includes Emily Kachorek’s Squid Rattlecan, Kathryn Cumming’s Von Hof CX and Meghan Korol’s Don Walker steel Spatha, all of which were handmade in the United States.
Of his 15 bikes, Mark King, finisher at the Lost and Found Bike Ride, decided to take his Framed Alaskan full carbon fat bike in order to tackle the 100 miles of gravel. He built the bike up with drops only days before the race, and today we offer a full bike profile from the Lost and Found.
Sometimes steep gravel climbs and technical descents need that extra challenge. At the 2015 Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship’s Lost and Found Gravel Race, Dax Downey brought an All-City Cycles Def Wish with a BMX drivetrain and a coaster brake that overheated on the long, sharp descents.
The competition was fierce at the 2015 Lost and Found Gravel Race with plenty of big cyclocross names showing up for the start. Ben Berden brought along his Sea Otter and Tokyo Cyclocross-tested Stoemper Ronny, and we were able to get a closer look at all of the details, including the newest components from TRP, FSA and Kenda.
Like Katie Compton did before him years in a row, Andrew Dillman proved that you don’t need the lightest carbon fiber frame to get yourself to the top of the podium at a championship race. We take a closer look at his Collegiate Championship winning Trek Crockett for today’s Pro Bike Profile.
Julie Lockhart tackles the stairs at the 2015 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships, and took home yet another stars and stripes jersey. Today we look at her Redline Conquest that helped her manage the twists and turns of Austin.
Karen Brems soared in the Masters 50-54 field at Austin, starting with a ferocious holeshot, to win the stars and stripes jersey. We take a closer look at the details of her Stevens Super Prestige Canti that helped her get to the top step.
Emma White was able to overcome a year of rough luck of a combined two major crashes. She vaulted herself to a win at the 2015 National Championships in the 17-18 Junior Women’s Field. Today we take a closer look at her Cannondale SuperX cyclocross bike.
Caroline Mani continued her dominance in American cyclocross races as last season’s PRO CX Series leader with a win at 2015 Sea Otter. Our Pro Bike Profile examines the details and components she used on her Raleigh RXW Elite bike.
Paul Curley made a splash by opting for a full carbon bike for the 2015 National Championships. Today we examine his winning Felt F1x cyclocross bike.
With all of the First Look cyclocross bikes at Sea Otter, we knew we would have to capture a few of the riders’ bikes from the race. Eric Nelson’s Beer X Squid Team Bike took off on the earliest race of the day, the Singlespeed Category, and we take a closer look at the rig that sent him to the extended podium.
