Friday Feature: Japanese Cyclocross And A Blast From Cyclocross’ Past

Screen shot Japan Cyclocross Video

See how they race cyclocross in Japan in this great video.

Can’t get enough cyclocross? If the Dirty Deeds Urban Cyclocross Series was interesting to you because of its international appeal, this video of Kansai Cyclocross posted on the Cowbell Forums by pigmon_tatara will be equally intriguing.

He writes, “This movie is the digest of Kansai Cyclocross ’10-11 season. (Oct. ’10 to Feb. ’11) Kansai Cyclocross is the largest cyclocross series in Japan. ‘Kansai’ is the name of middle west area of Japan including Kyoto, Osaka, and Hyogo.”

Added bonus: this Friday we have a double feature!

Feeling nostalgic for the good old days of cyclocross? Today, we have a blast from the past with Cyclocross World Championships footage from 1993. In it, we see Henrik Djernis as he rides to victory in Corva, Italy. Djernis impressively won the Danish Cyclocross National Championship ten times in a row from 1989 to 1998 and then won the title twice more in 2000 and 2001. However, 1993 was the only year that he won the World Championships.

Really it should be noted that this is the AMATEUR Worlds not the PRO race. Regards, Konrad Manning, London UK
