  • The Girl With The Cowbell Tattoo: No Fear

    This week, we introduced a new feature of the site called Newbie News, which is designed to help new racers learn some of the ins and outs of the greatest sport on earth, confront their fears of race areas like barriers, bunny hopping or dismounts, and to give riders a chance to ask questions that they might have been afraid to ask otherwise. (You know the saying ‘there are no stupid questions’? Yeah, that’s extremely true in cyclocross.) The Newbie feature is hugely important to me, because we’ve all been there. At some point, even Katie Compton was a newbie. And not too long ago, I was seriously new to the sport. I’m still new enough that I’m learning a lot as I post these articles, and it’s my hope that you’ll be learning along with me.

  • Tough Mudder: Cyclocross Without the Bike?

    Tough Mudder Bear Creek 2010

    by Robbie Carver An interesting New York Times article was published recently about an event called the Tough Mudder being held at the Bear Creek Mountain Resort. What caught my eye initially was the opening header: “Playing with fire, barbed…
