Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross Sept 2010

September 20th, 2010

Jumping Cyclocross Barrier

The first Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race of the season was Saturday. It wasn’t even close to cyclocross weather with the high well into the 80s and the course was dry and dusty. You can find results here.

A few photos are below and you can find more of my photos here.

Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross Nov 2009 Results and Photos

November 21st, 2009
Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross November 2009

This morning I got up way earlier than I felt like for a Saturday morning. It was time for the 2nd Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race of 2009 and I was helping set up the course. It was fairly warm at my house but chilly out at Bear Creek Park.

Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross November 2009By mid morning the clouds cleared and it started warming up. This meant icy sections started turning to mud. As the day went out some of the mud tried out but the hill up from the creek stayed nasty.

Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross November 2009The icy section before the muddy uphill that I thought would cause crashes didn’t seem to until near the end of the Cat 4 Men’s race. Dirty water covered rutted ice lurking beneath. A couple crashes within a few minutes left one racer with a possible wrist fracture.

I shot nearly 1,200 photos throughout the day. I’ve uploade some of the best photos from the cyclocross races today to SmugMug. I plan to upload many more but it may take a little while.

Colorado Springs CyclocCross Race This Saturday

November 18th, 2009

The second Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race is this Saturday at Bear Creek park. I will be there at o-dark-thirty helping set up the course. Throughout the day I’ll be shooting photos and helping out with whatever needs to be done.

The plan is for the course to be the same as the September cyclocross race. Check the race flyer for the times for the different races.

Because of the fairly short laps, cyclocross is great for spectators. It looks like the weather will be nice so come on out with your cowbell if you aren’t racing.

September 13th, 2009

The Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race went well yesteray. Although it was cloudy all day, the rain held off until the final 2 races.

In between helping out with the race, I was able to shoot over a 1,000 photos. I’m still going through them. Check back later to see the photos and for a more detailed race report. In the meantime, there are several photos on my Twitpic stream.

Update 9/14/09: First set of Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross photos is uploaded. I’ll be adding many more.

2009 Cyclocross Season Almost Here

September 1st, 2009

2009 Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross

The days are getting shorter. Although the days are still warm, the nights are getting crisper. This is a sure sign that cyclocross season is just around the corner.

For those that aren’t familiar with it, cyclocross is a from of bike racing that takes place during the fall and winter. The race courses can be a mix of dirt and pavement. It’s also common for there to be plenty of mud. Traditionally there have been barriers where riders dismount and run. Over the last couple years, the barriers have started going away.

The bikes look similar to road bikes but have more clearance for the tires. This allows for wider tires and also keeps the mud from jamming up as bad.

Cyclocross in Colorado is kicking off here in Colorado Springs on September 12th at Bear Creek Park. This is 1 of 2 cyclocross races that Pikes Peak Velo is putting on this year. The race flyer has the details.

Below is the 2009 Colorado cyclocross schedule. Check the American Cycling Association site for changes.

Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross November 2008

Update: View many more PPV cyclocross photos split out by class.

Today was the 2nd Pikes Peak Velo’s SuperCross race. It wasn’t cyclocross weather though. The course was dry and dusty with warm temperatures.

I helped with course setup and then roamed around the course. I was able to get a lot of photos. By a lot, I mean about 1,700. It’ll take me a few days to go through them and post the good ones. In the meantime here are a few for you to enjoy. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

You can also look at my photos from the September cyclocross race. Those were taken with my old point and shoot camera so they aren’t as good as the ones I took today with my digital SLR.

Pikes Peak Velo CycloCross Saturday.

November 21st, 2008

Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross 2007
The Pikes Peak Velo SuperCross race is tomorrow. First race is the juniors at 9 AM. Pro women are at 2:15 PM and Pro Men are at 3:10 PM.

There will plenty of racing action throughout the whole day. See the SuperCross race flyer for times for the other races. Cyclocross is perfect for spectators so even if you’re not racing, come out and watch.

The course will be the same as in September. I thought we might have a bit longer loop on the hillside but that isn’t the plan. There can also be slight changes on race day though.

Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross Photos from September

November 17th, 2008

I’ve finally posted my photos of the September Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race. Unfortunately I had to use my old Olympus Stylus 410 since my Olympus 750 got broken.

This weekend is our 2nd cyclocross race this fall at Bear Creek Park. We’ll basically be using the same course as in September. There was a section we had to take out because the park manager was afraid it would get torn up because of the mud. That section may get used this time.

I’ll be out at the course early Saturday morning setting up barriers and tape. During the first couple races, I’ll be course marshaling. If things are running smoothly after that, hopefully I’ll get to play with my Nikon D80.

Local Paper has Cyclocross Article

October 26th, 2007

Pikes Peak Velo Cyclocross
Thanks to a link from Mad Dog, I found that The Gazette, out local paper known for not covering cycling, has an article in today’s paper about cyclocross. Although the article is about cross in California, it does mention our upcoming race on November 18th. You can also look at my pictures from our September cyclocross race.
