No one will ever confuse me for a competitive cyclist, and any time someone talks about an upcoming cyclocross race, I can only think of Clubber Lang’s pre-fight interview from Rocky III:
But there is something incredible about watching riders push themselves beyond their limits, often with nothing more than pride or their own expectations on the line. This past Sunday, I got up early (my own little sacrifice, it’s ok to be in awe) to head out to MFG Cyclocross’s Woodland Park GP to capture riders facing the course, their peers and themselves. These are some of the results.
Taking dollar handups with a derailer hanging limp from the chain.
Celebrating at the finish line nearly taking an ugly turn.
Today MFG and Nuun are hosting a work party to get the park back into shape from 12pm – 5pm. And MFG isn’t done for the year – they’ll be hosting a weekend of sanctioned racing December 6-7, check in with them for more details.
