If you're keeping up with Cross on either Cycling Dirt or In The Cross Hairs, you might have seen this, but if not take a look. This is the first time I've been able to see just what these guys were racing on and what the course was really like. While the live coverage was cool, the shots were so loooooong you couldn't see what the actual combat was (it was more like a hunting video where somebody's shooting an Elk at 5,000 yards.) Now you can see what the battle was like up-close and personal. And what the hell is with now course markings, just mow a swath through the prairie?
Same goes for the excellent video below covering the women's race. Hard fought battle for second place behind Katie. It's also pretty emotional at the end - the new Katie threw down a great race and it looks like she's going to be the Next Katie.
