We at Cyclocross Magazine have a lot to be thankful for. It’s been an amazing year so far, and although we have a ton of work left to do, we want to say thanks to all of you that have helped us make it this far.  We hope you can squeeze in a ride, a little mud, and a nice meal on this Thanksgiving day. You deserve it.

Happy Thanksgiving!
