Who doesn’t like some great drone footage of cyclocross racing? While some of the top European races have made such additions to their video coverage of the pros, we’re grateful it’s not just limited to UCI-sanctioned events.

Thanks to amateur drone pilots, we’ve got some professional-quality drone coverage of local races as well.

Lee Slone hung up his cleats for Day 2 of the 2021 Surf City Cyclocross weekend and gave flight to his DJI drone instead. He captured highlights from the infamous costume race, the Women’s race, and the Men’s A / singlespeed / tracklocross race.

Relive a bit of the nation’s longest-running cyclocross series with a little over four minutes of flight (and a few seconds of hand-held filming) below.

Subscribe to CXM’s Youtube channel for more videos, and while you’re there, give Lee’s Youtube channel a follow, and hope that he’ll post more great videos in the near future.
