Bilenky Urban Junkyard Cross 2008: The One With The Tetanus Shot

December 28th, 2008 — 12:10am

The Bilenky Cycle Works Urban Junkyard Cyclocross Race is not your typical cross race. Unless your idea of typical includes riding through stacks of junked cars, ducking under I-beams, traversing railroad ties and taking a trip through a storage trailer.

Kisscross 2008: The One With The Honor Code

December 2nd, 2008 — 12:13am

West Michigan’s Kisscross cyclocross visited Richmond Park in Grand Rapids November 16 for race #6 of this unique and brilliant series. For the uninitiated, Kisscross is a grassroots series that puts a premium on fun, hard racing and the ability to count under pressure.
