When I first saw Stephen Hyde race cross at Nittany CX my reaction was probably the same as most, “who is that kid!” Hyde took his place at the front of the race amongst talent like Todd Wells, Jacob Lasley and Adam Myerson to name a few, at times dictating the pace. Fast forward one week later and Hyde takes on Jonathan Page in a head to head battle at Charm City CX besting the veteran and at the time National Champion on day 2 of the event to win his first UCI race. Since then Stephen’s trajectory towards the top of the sport has been at lightning speed, this past season saw him on the podium weekly at the biggest event in the country including back to back victories at the UCI C1 events in Louisville, Kentucky. Stephen’s attitude is infectious and easy to see his love and dedication to the sport of cyclocross, I was able catch up with Stephen a few weeks after his season ended in Europe as he begins to refocus for the coming year.
Checking my photos from day 2 at the World Championship and there really wasn’t much to show for it. Looks like I wasn’t the only one with equipment in the rain issues though.
If day 1 was Ladies Day then today must be Gentleman’s Day, yes? Continue reading “AFI: Heusden-Zolder World Championship (Day 2)”

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”
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.
