Cyclocross season is fully here. Cold rain, lots of mud, Sunday was just an epic day of classic cyclocross racing. This past weekend Now/Synergy cycling team hosted the annual Green Acres cyclocross race. I've ridden with the Now/Synergy on some groups ride for the last few years, so it was great to be out supporting the team. With rain on Saturday, continuing through the middle of the day Sunday, a large part of the course turned into a giant mud pit. The conditions were so difficult that everyone was just having a blast trying to stay upright and watch the lap count tick down. Nearly everyone crossed the finish with a smile, laughing at the absurdity of what they just did, mixed with relief to have completed the race. The mud was a great equalizer, even those who started with ultralight race bikes had pounds of mud caked all over their bikes by the end of the race. It was one of the best cyclocross races I've seen, and worth all the misery of spending the whole day standing in the cold drizzle.
