Many areas of the country, including New England, has once again been battered by heavy snowfall last night. While today marks the last day of UCI cyclocross racing, we’re not ready to jump on our road bikes anytime soon. To be fair, we look for any excuse, no matter how slight, to stay on our cyclocross bikes all “off-season” long.

While throwing a few logs in the fireplace and calling it a day is one possibility, we watched this video posted by Opus on Vimeo, and realized there are still Canadians racking up the base miles outside in much more brutal weather than we have here. We saw Opus’ newest model Stella and Spark at 2014 Interbike, and their video could be enough to brave the windchill (or at least make you feel appropriately guilty for putting your feet up in the comforts of your home).
