Local cyclocross is the heart of the sport here in the U.S., and we are always excited to see creative ways of covering grassroots racing.

The folks at River City Bicycles in Portland have put their own unique spin on the Cyclocross Crusade’s opening weekend at Alpenrose Dairy with this irreverent highlights show.

Phil Saso—unqualified guy in sport jacket—and Dylan Herbert—even less qualified guy in sport jacket—report from the studio, and Lyle Myerson serves as their field correspondent.
