‘Cross You Like a Hurricane – Cyclocross Nationals Day 3

When the van is rocking, it usually means Mother Nature is knocking with big wind making its way down the front range and across the foothills. It ripped through pop up tents, course markers, and riders as they made their way around the 2+ mile course.

While the junior categories were getting blown all over the place in the 40 m.p.h. winds, I took the chance to meander around behind the scenes and see what makes cx nationals tick. I found Katie Compton’s new Trek Boone that she’ll be riding Sunday in search of her 10th Cyclocross National Championship. Sven Nys rides the same bike and called it “perfect.” ‘Nuff said.

Mechanics and chefs were hard at work throughout the day tuning bikes and cooking up race fuel for riders warming up for the collegiate team relay, eventually won by Marian University.
