Let's sit back and watch some lovely "films" of the past season together, shall we? I have my smoking jacket on, and I'm ready to roll.
Sure, there's still 'cross racing to be done - an some of it amounts to the most important races of the year, like the New Year's Resolution in Chicago, Nationals in Madison, World Master's in Looeyville, and the World Championships in Looeyville, not to mention the best of them all - a dune race in Holland. So while it may look I'm pulling the plug by slipping into something more comfortable like a smoking jacket, a snifter of cognac and a non-stop diet of pizzas and ice cream, let's not forget the truly hardcore out there that have just begun to race. On the other hand, for the other 98% of you Bastards, it's time to sit back and look back at a few select films that capture the year-that-was in Michigan Cyclocross racing.
Yes, Cyclocross Racing was filled with many memorable moments like these.
What better way to remember all those races than to view it through the lens of Adam McIntyre's GoPro, that was there for practically every race. It's a great way to relive every twist and turn of the courses you hammered this year.
2012 MICHIGAN STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS - ADDISON OAKS - TAILWIND FINALE
Fresh in the memory you may not even need to watch. But as you do you're sure to remember that sand, that slog up the back, and the slippery little OC's. It's all here. Ride it one more time with Big Mac.
2012 BIG BAD WOLF - STOMACH OF ANGER FINALE
Uggggh. The pain of it all. It was like a USGP race part two. Tougher than hell, maybe the toughest, most Euro course of the year, thanks to JB Hancock. Or not thanks to him. Bastard.
2012 WATERFORD RACEWAY - TAILWIND RACING
Two days of racing, with completely different tracks. Great racing - lot of battles on everything from dry and cold to wet and slick.
2012 USGP EVA BANDMAN - LOOEYVILLE, KANTUCKY
What a great course. If you rode it you can say you raced on the same course the Nys will be rockin' this year. Scary in spots, challenging in all others. This is a great and fun look at this course in the 2/3's with Big Mac.
2012 MAD ANTHONY, DETROIT - STOMACH OF ANGER
More than just a novelty course, this thing is a blast to race. Hat's off to the promoters for making this happen, once again, against tough odds.
