Fish Head Rolls Without Hooks in Kentucky

Louisville, Kentucky — “Opening Day” is magic. Whether it’s the start of baseball, cyclocross or even fishing season, “opening day” for grownups is like Christmas morning for a six-year-old. This year’s opening day for this year’s Zipp OVCX Cyclocross Tour is September 18 in Louisville, when middle-America’s most popular cyclocross series will likely be overrun by “fish heads”. Dubbed the “FishStiCX Cross,” the September 18 races take place at Louisville’s gorgeous and challenging Fisherman’s Park.

MFG Series Kick Off Cross Starts the Season; Gaertner and Berden Take the Wins

Mother Nature wanted to have her say today as racers lined up for the first MFG Series race in Kirkland, WA. Big Finn Hill park, for the second year in a row, played host to the Kick Off Cross race delivered by Cycle University.

Nittany Day Two: Euro Podium Invasion; Wyman and Van Den Bosch Take The Wins

The first weekend of racing is over, and racers on the East Coast are feeling extremely tired after an incredibly muddy first weekend of cyclocross racing. The normally flat and fast course at Nittany was transformed into a muddy bog, and with the course running backwards on the non-UCI day two of racing, the racers started by almost immediately hitting a mud pit.

Lee is ready for cyclocross to start up again, and has a few tips for new racers.

It’s Fall – A Column By Lee Waldman

It’s almost Autumn. Hard to believe when the temperature in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, yesterday was in the mid-90s. Our first ’cross race, the target of all my work this past summer, is in less than three weeks. As soon as I got back from Nationals I began thinking about, planning for, and training towards this season. How many times in my life am I going to have the chance to even consider going to Masters Worlds? With their presence in the US for the next two years, it actually is a reality for me. All of the goals I’ve set, every mile on the mountain bike this summer, each circuit on the ’cross course; they’re now money in the bank. This week I’ll finalize my racing schedule for the season and then, with Louisville firmly planted in my mind, I’ll start racing. One more endurance race over Labor Day weekend, and then, cyclocross. Scraped shins, mud of all varieties, ruts, sand, max heart rate, blood, sweat and drool. What could be more fun?

The first race in Washington state is always one to attend, especially when it’s on Labor day weekend. Top riders, old friends, and a whole slew of cheers or jeers were happily reunited. Presented by Team Double check, the Labor Day cyclocross race was a success in drawing in riders from all over including Nick Weighall and David Richter. Raleigh’s new addition, Jenni Gaertner of Raleigh USA even came out to throw down with an impressive win since her contract at Raleighs Midsummers Race. Located at a new venue, “The Pit” (Lloyd Enterprises Retail Yard) in Milton, Washington. this gravel pit was converted into an abusive cross course that tested the skills and hydration of many.
