Photos: 2013 Ithaca Grand Prix of Cyclocross

This Saturday I drove down to Ithaca, Michigan to take some pics at the 2013 Grand Prix of Cyclocross.

I am by no means a professional photographer and usually have to monkey with the pics to get the look I want, so keep that in mind when viewing. Like my racing and riding, it’s mostly another expensive hobby that I am not very good at (ha!). Regardless of all that, below is slide show of what I have processed so far. If you did the race and want to download a photo for your personal use, just visit the Flickr set. There is no charge for the pics, but if you want to donate a few cents towards the XXC cause and our coverage of “dirt culture” by clicking the button below, I wouldn’t yell at you.

Video: 2012 Mo. State CX Championship

We here at XXC are known for our love of big ass mountain bike, gravel and ultra cx races, but when you get down to it, we just love ridin’ and racin’ bikes in the dirt. With Cross Worlds going down this week in Louisville, KY we thought it would be appropriate to bust out some cross video (that and someone emailed us the link to this film to check out).

Really dig this video shot by Tom Baker taken at the Missouri State Cross Championship. Black and white, Super 8 film feel with more than a nod to the classic cross movie Pure Sweet Hell. It’s always nice to see talented folks getting creative while covering the sport. Well done Tom!

Enough blathering, here’s the video:
