October 29th, 2010 — 2:25pm

U.S. Cross Nationals is moving to Madison, Wisconsin, for 2012-2013. And the race will now be in January, which puts the U.S. a little more in line with the rest of the cyclocross world. Yeah, I know, Wisconsin in January. But, really, it’s not so bad. Bring your long johns and bourbon, rent an ice-fishing […]

October 28th, 2010 — 3:36pm

All Hallows Cross, race #6 in the MABRAcross series, is this Saturday in Hughesville, Maryland. All Hallows, presented by Pax Velo, debuted last year with a slopfest that favored the power guys and gals in the region. With long straights and not much elevation, the rain was the only thing that kept the race pace […]

October 27th, 2010 — 5:31pm

The addition of another set of uphill barriers was a cruel trick, indeed. But overall, DCMTB took a good cyclocross blueprint and made it even better. Here is a bit more […]

For most promoters, a full slate of MABRAcross racing is plenty. But the go-getters at DCMTB wanted more so they added races for rookies, single-speeds and tandems to the DCCX slate. For those that stuck around late in the day, these races were some of the most entertaining on the schedule.  The tandem race, in […]

Hyattsville CX Helmet Cam

October 20th, 2010 — 9:07am

Hyattsville CX went off October 10 under sunny skies and seasonably awesome temperatures. Was it traditional cyclocross weather? It was for Hyattsville, your fast and sunny race in the MABRAcross series. We have helmet-cam footage from the Masters 3/4 race. I had the seat-stay cam hooked up but it was too shaky to watch. I […]

Plenty to get to next week, including Hyattsville CX helmet cam and DCCX preview videos. For those looking for a Granogue preview, […]

Winchester Apple Harvest Cross Helmet-Cam

October 7th, 2010 — 2:48pm

The Winchester Apple Harvest Cross, which took place October 3, offered riders a true gem in the MABRAcross series. With rolling terrain, an epic “Belgian Wall,” dirt trails, and plenty of twisty turns to keep you honest, the organizers pretty much hit it out of the park. The video is from the helmet-cam only […]
