Some good info is starting to appear on most major cycling news outlets regarding the start of the Cyclo-Cross season. My next post will be on the opening race of the NCNCA season, The Folsom Cyclebration held at the Folsom Rodeo Grounds.
In the mean time, please check out this Cycling News report on some of the races and faces that will be starting the Cross season off around the country this weekend and next.
Or this Cycling News report on- A taste of American 'cross - Part 1
There is also a good mention of the premier screening of Nor-Cal legend Brian Vernor's new film "The Cyclocross Meeting" about the currently exploding US cyclo-cross scene and the emerging Japanese cyclo-cross scene.
Here is a awesome trailer of his new film "The Cyclocross Meeting" -
Leading up to the Beijing Olympics I was lucky enough to meet & get to know closely Japan's greatest ever off-road racer Rie Katayama- who attended the Sea Otter Classic multiple times. Rie Katayama is a 7 time Japanese National MTB Champion- and the only off-road rider from Japan to compete in the Olympic XC event. After riding and training with her, and watching her compete at the highest level of the sport, I can personally tell you that the people of Japan take their cycling very seriously, and they also love their Cyclocross! Please have a look at that trailer~
