According to a new press release from USA Cycling, they now have 'new' cyclo-cross categories on their licenses. Now is they could just have some races outside of the USGP's, which by the way there are two of them this year in Colorado in November. Realizing we are just getting into the mountain bike season, I check out the DVD 'Transistion', a movie that follows the 2004 domestic cyclo-cross season and racers. It is very well done, show some insight into top racers, as well as some not so top racers. It is a great motivation for any kind of riding or racing, check it out. You can order it through www.cyclocrossworld.com.
I have also heard a rumor that USA Cycling will rank single speeders this season? While single speeders have long been anti-establishment, and sort of punk rockers of the mtb scene, it would be great to see ranking structure, as there are more and more SS racers, state & regional point series, and interest in the facet of the sport.
