This past week, Justin Lindine took the lead in the United State International Cyclocross Calendar’s standings. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, since he’s been the top dog in the New England racing scene since Night Weasels nearly a month ago. After his first win at Night Weasels, a small night-time Wednesday race in Massachusetts, he’s been a seemingly unstoppable force, even scooping up a UCI C1 win at Providence.
I’ve been catching up with Lindine after races, and while he may be tearing it up on the courses, he’s always humble in his post-race interviews, reminding me of other racers who did well and berating himself for his “poor starts.” Because Lindine is hard to find on the Internet (he’s one of the few racers who doesn’t have a Twitter), we wanted to give people a chance to get to know him better, since he’s quickly becoming a household name amongst the cyclocross set.
My personal favorite interview moment? When asked about Granogue Day Two, Lindine said that the race was more “fraught with peril” than previous days.
Enjoy catching up with (as Kat Statman puts it in Rumors and Rumblings), one of cyclocross’s favorite Working Man Heroes.
