Cyclocross

Call it ‘Crash Corner’

Each day during the cyclocross national championship week the race course is open at noon for riders of all categories to take a few laps. On Thursday, December 10, VeloNews grabbed a few photographs of one of the trickiest corners of the course.

Each day during the cyclocross national championship week the race course is open at noon for riders of all categories to take a few laps. On Thursday VeloNews grabbed a few photographs of one of the trickiest corners of the course.

Some riders managed to successfully navigate the frozen ground but a good number of folks didn’t quite take the right line. In one of the photos a masters rider takes out multi-time national champ Tim Johnson (Cannondale-cyclocrossworld.com).  Johnson laughed it off and helped the fallen rider back up the hill.

With conditions like these, tire choice and a low center of gravity will be key for a national championship performance.
