Not every Throwback Thursday has to go back to the days of black and white images. This week we’re going all the way back to last month and the 2016 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships.
This “highlight” reel of slips and spills showcases just how tough the course in Asheville, North Carolina was. The technical aspect of the track was something that we heard multiple riders comment on. And with the rains soaking the course for some of the events, nearly everyone had their share of falls on the course’s more challenging sections.
This video, posted to YouTube by TopShots Brad back on January 14, 2016, shows many riders washing out, getting sideways and, well, racing cyclocross. From what we’ve seen here and what we saw on course everyone, thankfully, got up and kept racing.
