Raleigh once again brought us some off-season cyclocross with April’s Sea Otter 2013 cyclocross race. After a small but enthusiastic showing in 2012 won by Ben Berden and Georgia Gould, the event returned for 2013 with more high-profile names and tighter racing. Yesterday, Raleigh-Clement teammates Carline Mani and Ben Berden took the wins over some top UCI talent on a dry, flat course.

Richard Masoner captured the action with a great pair of videos between the barriers during the men’s race, and has a unique perspective of the barrier running and hopping worth a watch. Check out his forward and backward views of the pro men fly over the wooden planks.
