Even as the barriers are torn down, and the dirt is scrubbed from our spent faces, we smile. As our frozen fingers come back to life, and the mud is hosed away, we laugh. We laugh because we know the rigors of 'cross, and we know that it'll always be hard. Despite these truths, though, we still make cyclocross bikes that deliver an advantage on race day. And from World Champs to weekend warriors, we're united in thought—I love cyclocross.
