Crystal City Wednesday Night Spins Race #4

March granted us five Wednesdays this year, which meant week four of racing at Crystal City BID’s Wednesday Night Spins was not the last time we will see everyone in the garage for 2016. Because we mix it up with a cargo/tandem/bike-share/anything-goes race and a fixed-gear race on the final night, it meant that two of our categories had their series finales in week four. The hotly contested women’s series will finish up this week. Continue reading “Crystal City Wednesday Night Spins Race #4”


AFI: Heusden-Zolder-World Championship (Day 1)

YESSSSSSSS, finally its World Champs time! The BIG WEEKEND IS HEEEEERRRREEE!

I know I’ve said it before, but I do think it’s more of an achievement to win a series than to be the one who got it right on one day, but it’s Rainbows up for grabs and the one race lottery is the way it goes. It’s also the weekend where we meet riders who have not ridden in Belgium before or who ride other disciplines and, for some reason, decide to get their CX on.

SSCXWC15 Video

Not only did the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championship leave the United States for the first time ever, but those crafty Canadians even got Telus, a telecom company, to fund a damn fine looking short film. From the looks of it, Victoria put on a top-notch event. From racing to riding to partying, this one hit all the right notes. Continue reading “SSCXWC15 Video”


AFI … Hoogerheide

[Editor’s Note: And yet another “A Fan In” posts to file under “Better Late Than Never.”  The races may be memories but the stories are still worth sharing.]

Another weekend and another World Cup. We head over the border to the Netherlands town of Hoogerheide, which means one thing … data roaming!

I like this course. Or should I say, I did, but I had been told of changes so I was looking forward, with some trepidation, to seeing what that was all about.
