We at Cyclocross Magazine have a lot to be thankful for. It’s been an amazing, eventful year so far, and we wanted to say thanks for joining us on this ride and making all the effort so rewarding.

On this Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), we hope you’ll be able to enjoy some grateful time with friends and family, have a great meal without obsessing over race weight and maintaining grace “with those around you, and the food they are offering.”

If you’re waiting for the turkey or Tofurkey to bake, a late flight to take off or perhaps an American football game to start, we’ve got a few favorite videos to keep you both informed and entertained.

Happy Thanksgiving!
