CLIF® Bar CrossVegas, Chamois Butt’r and Cyclocross Magazine have teamed up to give you 10 chances to win a CrossVegas and Chamois Butt’r swag bag, and a chance at our grand prize. For 10 weeks, we’ll have weekly contests for the prize packs, and at the end of the 10 weeks, one of our winners will be selected at random for the grand prize, so make sure you enter every week for a chance to win big! We’re five down, five to go: halfway to CrossVegas!

Your sixth challenge:  Belgium has had ’cross-themed TV programs featuring two-time World Champion Bart Wellens, “Wellens and Wie,” and cross legend Roger deVlaeminck, “Allez, Allez Zimbabwe,” and the US has Jeremy Powers in his webcast series “Behind the Barriers.”  If you could create a ’cross TV or reality show, what would it be and who would it feature?

Last week, you were tasked with creating a new Clif Bar flavor with a Vegas flair. The winner was footfeathers with “Peanut butter and banana flavor called the Flying Elvis.”

So many great responses—keep ‘em coming!

Weekly winners will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges (Brook Watts, CrossVegas Promoter; Andrew Yee, Cyclocross Magazine Publisher; Molly Hurford, Cyclocross Magazine Managing Editor). At the end of the 10 weeks, one of our winners will be selected at random for the grand prize, which includes a CrossVegas jersey signed by the race winner. The field includes current World Champion Sven Nys, so you can place your bets on who will be signing it …

‘Cross the U.S. would be a travel show, featuring the course, competitors, hand-ups and heckles of different local races. It’s well-established that the U.S. has its own brand of ‘cross, but as with everything else in this country, style varies heavily by state and region. While cx’ers in Texas sweat it out, racers in Minnesota are sliding through snow. How does the perennial mud of the Pacific Northwest compare to muddy days at NEPCX? From Clammy Cross in Utah to the ChiCrossCup in Illinois, ‘Cross the U.S. would highlight what makes every ‘crosser’s hometown race unique, and what traits are part of the growing national scene. Just how many teams out there are frying bacon course-side, anyway?

 

Hosted by @tweakn101 and @indigo_nico, the two would work with a local cx’er at each location to interview hometown race legends and characters. By pairing those interviews with course and race footage, viewers would get a feel for the history, attitude and competition of races a‘Cross the U.S.

I'd follow Adam Craig around with a camera crew, and cover all his racing. He's a jack of all trades and races multiple disciplines. He's always a threat for the top spot on any podium, a good sport, and he's an Oregonian! So how about it?

It would be a close tie between featuring Katie f’n Compton and me.  “In the Paincave with KFC”  would follow the US’s most successful mud, grass and sand crusader as she and her supporting husband travel the world seeking wins and securing sponsorships.  There is the intrinsic and captivating drama from KFC nipping at Marianne Vos’s heals and in the audience “discovering” the inequities between men’s and women’s racing.  Recently, my six year old daughter asked why there weren’t women in the Tour de France.  I responded, “I don’t know, it’s silly, but at least we have ‘cross and Katie Compton”.  Alternatively, there’s the reality show with me, “In the PainCave with That Guy”, the story of a weekend warrior, getting up before his family wakes to torture himself on a trainer, balancing a marriage, fatherhood and work, wondering if his file tread’s glue job will hold and dreaming of front row call-ups and beer handups… Second thought…stick with KFC.

How about "Keeping Up With the Keoughs"? Following that family (and the format of "star"-generating programming taken by a certain other "K" family), would lend itself to such spinoffs as "Jake and Luke Take Road" as those two chase road careers...yet feel the temptation of 'cross not too far behind.

There are so  many options - the serious one that I would love to see would be a reality show about Jonathan Pages exploits in Belgium - life, family, racing.  The title would be something that ties his homeland to his place of "work": Frittes and Fries - Exploits of a 'Crosser in Belgium

I would like to do a series that features the different area scenes/series, and not just the usual suspects (New England, Portland et al). One episode could feature Michigan. Next could be the Atlanta, GA area scene, then maybe Arizona. 

 

Each one of these areas has a thriving scene with it's own flavor, key players & attitude. For example, the North East Ohio CX group is not too far from Cap City Cross, which is not far from the OVCX. Yet all three areas have their own series and own flavor even though they share some races.

I would totally watch a reality show featuring Adam Myerson. He races, coaches, promotes and always has an opinion about everything. He is the most entertaining person on my Twitter feed.

I would create a crime drama, starring Tim Johnson and Ryan Trebon. Cyclocross racers by day, and crime fighters by night. Chasing fugitives down riding their cross bikes. Their DS/captain would be Stu Thorne, yelling at them from behind a desk...Think Starskey and Hutch.

I would love to see a show like the one that "Les Petites Reines" does for the women of the Euro World Cups, but focusing on the women of U.S. cross. The stories behind racers like Katie Compton, Mo Bruno Roy, Teal Stetson-Lee and Caroline Mani would be awesome. The unique mixture of camraderie and competition the women have would be completely fascinating.

well, since Craig Etheridge has his own show, i guess i'll have to get serious:

 

Josey Weik should have his own show. the kid is a legitimate farmer who lives miles from anyone else, yet finds time to train and travel to important races. i would like to see how he lives and balances helping support his family but still be at the top of the game.

 

i dunno how his parents would feel about this though.

My dream reality show would be called What's Cooking with Georgia Gouldlookin'? It would involve lots of footage of her heckling other racers while eating her delicious coconut ice cream.
