Matt, tell the people that write your local series reports to add some words of the throw downs in earlier races (B's or whatever you race) so you don't feel left out. CX Mag is doing the best job in cross coverage, so save your comments or make them positive. This is all part of a sport that is on the rise and in five years the fields will be 40+ deep all over the US when you and your complaining buddies all decide to upgrade instead of staying in B's to be a hero.


Matt, thanks for the comment. We're an equal opportunity report publisher...cyclocross from grass roots races to World Cups can get coverage, and many people like reading them. We'll do original overage of important races as we can, but others like this one, if we get a report, with some editing, we'll typically get it up so folks like you can read it. We're glad you did, but sorry you were disappointed. BTW, Van Gilder was ranked #1 in the world. Regarding field sizes though, not sure if you've seen some field sizes at women's World Cups or junior Nationals, but they're often smaller and still deserve coverage we'd argue.


How exactly do races with twenty and eight starters merit coverage? Sure the fields are strong, but don't these numbers reflect a profound lack of interest on the part of racers, let alone followers? Full report to follow? I'd rather read about the B races (if there were more than, say, forty racers). Yawn.
