Capital ‘Cross Classic Video

December 7th, 2009 — 12:37pm

The eleventh Capital ‘Cross Classic took place December 6 at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, Virginia.  Early morning ice and a layer of fresh snow turned to mud and slop as the day progressed.

Rockburn Cross Video

November 25th, 2009 — 8:19am

Day two of the Howard County Double Cross took place November 22 in Elkridge, Maryland. In its third year, Rockburn Cross is a Mid-Atlantic favorite that features greasy corners, fast single-track and quick hard climbs. With the sunny open sections and wooded single-track, this course works well on video. It may be paradoxical to say […]
