One of our favorite aspects of cyclocross is the fact that most ’crossers don’t take themselves too seriously and can have a good time despite their dedication to their craft.

Halloween brings out the best of this, with the historically West Coast-dominated tradition of Costume Cross. While there have been so many great costumes at the races, here’s a slideshow of few of our favorite costume ’cross photos over the years.

Happy Halloween!
