Starcrossed lovers: A photo essay.

30 09 2009

Starcrossed Cyclocross has grown from a novelty event under the floodlights of the Marymoor Velodrome to the first high profile event on the national cyclocross calendar. It is a priority for professionals and amateurs alike – within one hour of online registration opening, over one third of the available spaces in the category 3 men’s field were snatched up. However, the on-the-ball crew at Recycled Cycles Racing managed to get their fair share of riders enrolled in several categories. This is their story.
