Keep Your Eyes Peeled This Week For:

  • Newbie News: whether you’re a seasoned rider or you hadn’t heard of  cyclocross until last week, there’s something in Newbie News for you. We’re starting off with a few of our favorite tips for new racers, and giving noobs an idea of what they can expect to see online this summer.

    Rutgers University Cycling Team

    Vareschi is the team director for the Rutgers University Cycling Team

  • The Girl With The Cowbell Tattoo: this week, I’ll be talking about fear as a limiter to racing and life in general. And yes, there will be lots of descriptions of me falling down.
  • Collegiate Chronicles: in this new bi-weekly column, you can meet Mark Vareschi, team director and “Mama Bear” for the five-time Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference Cyclocross Champions (and my alma mater), the Rutgers University Cycling Team. He’ll be talking about what it takes to build up a cyclocross team from a team of just five road racers to one of the top collegiate cyclocross teams on the East Coast.
  • In the Saddle With … we don’t want to give everything away, but we’ll give you a hint: he claimed a world championship title for cyclocross at the tender age of 22.
  • Racer Reviews: we’ll see even more products previously featured in issues of Cyclocross Magazine.
  • Rumors and Rumblings: Kat Statman is, as always, filling us in on what’s going on in the world of pro cyclocross, and doing an amazing job of it!
