  • Collegiate Chronicles: ECCC Leadership Cyclocross-Style, Part II

    Welcome to Part II of our “Director’s Cut” of the ECCC Cyclocross Program. We’ve talked to some of the behind-the-scenes workers who make the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference run so smoothly, especially during cyclocross. It’s certainly no easy task, since races aren’t strictly collegiate, and the calendar has to take location, size, elite fields and timing into consideration. It’s make even more difficult (or easy) this year since Nationals are now in January, right when most students will be on winter break. Because of this, the collegiate season will be extended well into December, which could affect students who would like to make it home for the holidays, but who are in contention for top spots in the conference. Last time, we heard from Drexel’s Joe Kopena and Tim Manzella. This week, we talk to Union College alum and New England cyclocrosser Steven Hopengarten.

  • Verge New England Championship Cyclocross Series Returns For 2011

    The Verge New England Championship Cyclocross Series returns in 2011 with a new focus – to develop and crown the best amateur racers in New England. This year’s Series will crown eight champions – for men, there are Masters 35+, 45+ and 55+, Juniors 10-14 and 15-18 and Amateur (Cat 3). For women, 2011 sees the second year of the Amateur (Cat 3/4) Women’s competition as well as the proud addition of a Masters 35+ contest within the Amateur Women’s race. With the continual growth of the Amateur Women’s field, it became important to add a second category within the race for the fastest category 3 or 4 woman over age 35. Of course, as in years past, there will be races at all events for Category 4 men. Each weekend will also feature at least one UCI-level Elite race that will attract some of the top competitors in the country and the world.

  • In The Saddle With Adam Myerson: Elite Racer, Coach, Captain, Manager and Organizer

    Adam Myerson is a bit of a cyclocross legend, especially on the east coast. Cyclocross Magazine publisher Andrew Yee distinctly recalls Myerson’s presence at his first race, and years later, he’s still a fixture in New England cyclocross and beyond. With an impressive set of palmares that come from 25 years of bike racing, Myerson is certainly an elite force to be reckoned with, even as some of his contemporaries abandon the Pro field for Masters races. Still, as Myerson (and his latest tattoo) will tell you, he lives by the motto “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.”
