Cyclocross is a fringe cycling phenomenon with deep roots in modern cycling culture. The sport began as a favorite off-season training activity for Tour de France riders nearly 100 years ago, and has since become a national pastime in several European countries.
In the United States, the rough-and-tumble world of cyclocross racing has remained a sport on the margins, with races organized in city parks, woodlands, and homemade courses across America.
There is no question that this is a dangerous sport. Avid racers are no stranger to blood and mayhem. There are few accolades and minimal opportunity for glory.
On November 20th, racers gathered from all over the Northeast to compete in the annual Supercross Cup.
