Thinking about the great racing to come this week at the Cyclocross National Championships in Asheville also has us thinking about the gear that folks will be riding on their way to the title. Last year in Austin we saw some interesting bikes and some tried and trued set-ups that propelled their pilots to the podium’s top step and the title of National Champion.
Take a look at some of last year’s winning rigs and see the full profile for each using the links.
And stay tuned for profiles of the 2016 National Championship-winning bikes from Asheville by Cyclocross Magazine.
For junior riders, the challenge is often just finding a bike that’s small enough. That was the case with Carden King last year and his Junior Men’s 9-10 winner powered coated Ridley X-Bow, size XXS. King got his race-winning bike by doing chores around the house. See the full profile of the bike here.
