I talked to Curtis about how he started in cyclocross and his progression from rising star to a guy who can dictate how races play out. The conversation with Curtis takes place in Druid Hill Park after Saturday’s Charm City Cross races so we get a little bit of extra sound in there most notably from the Druid Hill Park ice cream truck at the end of our conversation.

I had originally planned on talking to Emma after Sunday’s race in Baltimore, but by the time the podium presentation finished up, the family was ready to start the long drive back to upstate New York and I didn’t want to hold them up, so instead we talked Monday morning on the phone. Emma walks us through her silver medal road race in Richmond and the transition to cyclocross.

If you want a re-enactment of what the interviews may have looked like, it might be something like this …

In the conversation with Emma, she talks about the pared down set-up the family traveled with to Charm City Cross. This is how the bikes were packed in the U-Haul trailer. A little different set up than the Cannondale bus and sprinter. Make sure you save those old couch cushions, kids, someday you may be a pro bike racer, too.
