Title: The CX Picture Thread
Post by: Seth on October 05, 2011, 12:58:28 AM
Post pictures of you racing cyclocross.

I'm new to cx and have been learning all kinds of things lately.. like how to ride in sand, dismount/mount, etc.

Here are a couple from tonights practice race..

The sand owning me (it's funny, for some reason):
(http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/295822_10150342494377509_660387508_7969331_1039070596_n.jpg)
(somehow I recovered and promptly passed t-shirt/mtb guy)

Me owning the sand:

(eventually figured it out - shifted and spin through it much better than the mashing I was doing before)

About to jump the barrier and possibly looking forward to the end of the race:

You should. It's a blast.

On the sand, get back on the very back of your saddle.  You want your front tire light and your weight on the rear.  Bike will track much better.

some photos I think I already posted in the road race thread:

guess my mounting skills weren't TOO bad. looks like on this one (shots 2 & 3) i got back on pretty quick.

Well, I just finished looking through all of the other guys pics and everone else's I could find, no pic with me. The man that I had to order just to get the digital copy from, plus an additional pic because there was a minimum order, still hasn't even responded from the 7th of this month. I'm going to have to file a claim with paypal soon. Oh well.

Well that sucks. Next time I'm taking pics at a race where you are racing and our races aren't very close together I'll try to snap a couple of you racing. You should probably message that guy (was it Richard Rowe?) on FB or something if you haven't already.

Meanwhile, here are two moar of me. GC can see here that I really was racing.. and you all can also see here where I lost teh race (it was lost before we started, if we're being honest).

I messaged that guy through the gmail account associated with the paypal account.

to be fair, when I look at that picture all I really see are thigh gaps on those skinny *****es.
I'm trying not to think about it. I've lost enough weight that I'm back to pre-injury levels.  While my size still holds me back for sure, it's also become camouflage. I've sneaked back into that, "faster/fitter than I look" space that appears to be worth 5-10 places in a 'cross race.

Vaguely related: I dropped EIGHT pounds this week by giving up dairy. What the actual ****. Calories and macro-nutrients stayed the same, I just cut out skim milk (I don't even like cheese). I hate my body so much.

Thanks dude. I am digging them. We'll see. I think our guy had something slightly different (adding some blue to the kit) in mind for road kids. If it sucks I'll suggest the skinsuit design be used. ;)

isnt the skinsuit all blue? how can he add more unless he deletes the white and orange?  I really dig simple, classic design.  I am on the fence about which team to join for 2014, unfortunately I don't care for either kit design.  I should post them and let you folks decide.

Lol, the skinsuit is black. Which, when sublimated and in use sometimes looks more 'gray' than a deep black, but it is definitely not blue?!

Yeah please post the two options in a thread w/ a poll and we will help you decide.

Note my mad skillz that I can ride over the logs (there were two) while the chumps had to run up, you can't tell but this is a pretty steep hill, well steep enough when you are riding your bike over logs.

Nicely done! I love riding over stuff. Especially if you can crush people souls while doing it (like those guys behind you having to run the logs). It isn't always the fastest way, but it feels MOAR awesome.

ygduf is fed up with my cx pics. Here's one coming down pretty fast from that hill and into some muddy-rutted turn. It was kinda scary most of the time.

Wens, that red barrier was like 2 feet high, after a 90, at the beginning of a long steep run up with a 2nd barrier.  No one rode it in any race all day.  It's on the course that we practice on tuesday nights, hardly anyone rides it then with no barriers.  It's only rideable if you are in the first few people to hit it after the turn.

Start of this morning's race.

I am not good at navigating sand pits, but I could outrun those guys behind me.

Doing my best not to faceplant on the slippery runup.

Spent a lot of time in the woods today. This bit was very rooty.

There were a couple of fast downhill gravel sections. Big ring, woohoo.

Two day CX weekend. Saturday was cold, steady rain, soupy slippery mud. Sunday was windy and sunny. Less sloppy.

This year had pretty much all of the condtions; sunny, dusty, rain, sticky mud, greasy mud, snow flurries.
