Issue 27 is for all the efforts of the workingmen and women of cyclocross. In this issue, we examine the some of the larger dilemmas facing those the working heroes who look to the weekend as their retreat: money and time, and offer solutions to combat these problems. Only have a few hours a week to train? Not a problem with our quality over quantity training plan. Not enough dollars for racing? Nonsense; we offer plenty of ways to stretch out that dollar in equipment and DIY solutions. We also catch up with the pro workingman himself, Allen Krughoff, on balancing work, team management and cyclocross.
Elle Anderson gives a few tips on working and cycling abroad in Europe while Michael Van den Ham and Justin Lindine come up with solutions for avoiding burnout on overloaded schedules. Brian Cookson lays out his plans for the future of cyclocross in an interview, and we examine if the single life is right for our readers (single chainrings, that is). Bike reviews include models by BH, Raleigh, Focus, Jamis, Ridley, Fezzari, Volagi, and Fairdale. We also examine 30 Seven’s heated clothing, SRAM’s CX1 drivetrain, BKool’s Pro Trainer and shoes by Sidi (Drako) and Giro (Privateer).
And of course, like every issue of Cyclocross Magazine, Issue 26 is packed with photos (our biggest photo spread ever), rider diaries (Elle Anderson and Justin Lindine), a quiver of bikes we've tested, and even a cyclocross shoe review.
