Dirtwire.tv was on the ground at Worlds doing interviews that few media outlets would dare to do: interviewing Marianne Vos in a Christopher Walken voice, sending a 13 year old to talk to not only Jonathan Page and Katie Compton, but Sven Nys, and asking the most important question: how much of Van der Haar’s ride at Worlds was due to the awesome amount of “Go Van Der Haarder” t-shirts out at the race? While we did plenty of serious post-race interviews, we loved the irreverent, fresh take that they brought to the mix. Dirtwire shared some of their videos with us, and we couldn’t resist posting a few of our favorites.
Keep up with all of our Worlds coverage on our Cyclocross World Championships Home Page.

What is Dirtwire.tv?
This is not a traditional news site, it is a grassroots video event coverage site.
We cover every aspect of an event — creating video highlights, conducting interviews, checking in with sponsors and vendors, writing blogs and race reports…we don’t leave until every racer is off course and every beer has been drunk at the after-party. It’s a more thorough kind of treatment than you’ll get from any traditional media outlet. If you’re a promoter who wants their event covered or if you’re a company that wants to see an event covered, talk to us, we can work something out.
