Issue 28 is a winner, and it features a whole lot of them with every 2015 Cyclocross National Champion and 2015 World Champions. It is availble now on uberflip, in the App Store on iTunes, on Google Play for Android, or you can order a backcopy as well.
You can start with our feature interview with Mathieu van der Poel, who looks back at the journey of his career that catapulted him to become the 2015 World Champion. We also have a heartfelt interview with Niels Albert, who examines owning a bike shop and life after racing. On our side of the pond, we profile Gage Hecht, the next American cyclocross hope, who talks about his inspirations and dreams for the future.
We offer a cut-through-the-fluff analysis of the actual suppleness of tires in our CXM Labs. Think that labels such as high tpi and handmade directly translate to better suppleness? You might be surprised with the results.
The issue helps you adapt to the changes in cyclocross, from the new faces that dominated the races in Tabor to the latest and greatest in tech. Complete with Worlds and Nationals photospreads and looking back at Austin: lessons from an arborist and a celebration of the winners.
But we don’t just look back. We also sit down with the promoters of the next three Cyclocross National Championships and ask the tough questions: What did they learn from Austin, and why does Asheville, Hartford or Reno deserve a place on a rider’s bucket list more than the other races?
No time to put those feet up in the offseason. Our coaching guru, Kenneth Lundgren, doesn’t just walk cyclocrossers through the summer, he runs! Issue 28 comes with a month-by-month plan that details the hard work needed to get some free speed come the cyclocross season.
The issue comes with our in-depth Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards, which respectively offers the products that best survived our rigorous tests and trending items, races and people of the cyclocross world. Our reviews include the Redline Conquest Flight, the Wraith Paycheck, the Ritte Crossberg cyclocross bikes, and carbon tubular wheelset reviews from Reynolds and American Classic. We also get up with the trickle down technology of SRAM Rival 22, and the ultimate problem solving shifters, Gevenalle’s CX hydraulic and GC Dyna-Sys compatible shift / brake levers.
Bring cyclocross into your offseason with 100 pages of Cyclocross Magazine! As we said above, it is availble now on uberflip, in the App Store on iTunes, on Google Play for Android, or you can order a backcopy as well.
