Mark this post as the official revival of my blog. There are only a few things in life that have the capability to inspire me to dig up an old website, sift through every internet password I’ve ever used until eventually finding the right one, and then actually write something. One of those things, however is the U.S. Grand Prix of Cyclocross presented by Crank Brothers. I spent the past weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, where we were greeted by great weather, awesome fans, and an incredible race to boot.
After you jump over the barriers on foot, its all about how fast you can get back on the bike.
Next, you have things like “The Green Monster,” unique to the Louisville USGP course.
They threw in a sand trap just to keep things interesting.
And for the majority of the race, racers are on grass like this.Starting to make a little bit of sense? If you have never seen a race, its unlike anything you can imagine. The atmosphere at a ‘cross race in indescribable, unique in the sporting world. Lead changes everywhere, the potential for a crash at any second, and speed that you can’t imagine. Inspired yet? Go watch a bike race!
