Issue 12


Issue 12, our late-season issue, follows cyclocross from its sprouting grass roots in Indianapolis all the way to the sport's top stage, where we bring you exclusive access to Katie Compton's Worlds whirlwind. We also present profiles of each and every US national champion for the fourth straight year, and add a gorgeous photo gallery by Joe Sales. Features on Jeremy Powers and Nikki Harris celebrate their breakthrough seasons, Colin Reuter of explores the competitive nature, and 70-year-old Roland Hurtecant shows that cyclocross isn't just for the mud and fields as he relives his ride from Belgium through the Sahara to Algeria. Mechanics reveal must-do maintenance tips; tech reviews include the Cannondale Super-X, All City Nature Boy, Fuji Altamira CX 1.0 and Stan's NoTubes A340 Comp wheels; and we show how to build an aerobic base to prepare for the upcoming season.
