Cheating Doesn't pay for this Racer

Here is a little gem from the early days of internet video. Perhaps you remember it. I happen to think it's real but there is a good argument for it being staged.

A Video Blast From the Past - Lance Armstrong

I loved this clip the first time I saw it several years ago and just stumbled upon again. Watch Lance Armstrong cyclocross during stage 9 of the 2003 Tour and then remount. He was not DQ'd for this maneuver which actually placed him in a better position. Talk about making lemons out of lemonade.

Images from Krugers Crossing

SAUVIE ISLAND, Ore.- Not much racing on this video just a few shots that caught my eye from Kruger's Farm cyclocross race. I spent most of my time enjoying the crisp fall day with my son and watching him in the kiddy cross race. After a foot of rainfall the month before I had to get out and enjoy a day like this.

The dry weather was not enough to clear the slog, though. Many of the racers spent a lot of time on foot becuase the mud was so thik and sticky it would clog their tires and derailleurs. In the corn maze I came across one of the riders running the course with a toddler bike. Rumor had it that she even bombed down one of the pavement hills. Perhaps her next stop that evening was zoo bomb.

XC'06 DVD coming soon - order today!

Pure Sweet Hell "Cyclocross Film" (Three Minute Trailer)

PURE SWEET HELL tells the story of cyclocross, a sport that has emerged as bike racing's punk rock cousin. Told from an insider's perspective, the filmmakers traveled to 'cross competitions throughout North America, dug up vintage photos and film footage, and followed 'cross luminaries Justin Robinson, Gina Hall, Barry Wicks and Rick Hunter. Shot entirely on Super 8 and supported by experimental rock music, PURE SWEET HELL surfaces both the strong community behind the solitary sport and the grace that arises amidst all of its grit.

More information about the film can be found at . Purchasing info is available on the website.
