Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

#SVENNESS 2.13 from In The Crosshairs on Vimeo.
Episode 2.13 of #SVENNESS takes a look at the UCI Cyclocross World Cup race that took place December 26, 2013, at Heusden-Zolder. This race features the return of former 2 time elite cyclocross world champion Zdeněk Štybar. The race is in the red from the start with Štybar, LvdH, Marcel Miesen, Rob Peeters and Phillipp Walsleben pushing the pace. Ep 2.13 focuses on a crazy start, the ongoing tops vs. drops debate, and the tactic of "go." No mud, no sand, a tough run-up, a killer descent and some super high-speed racing. The only thing this racing is a Sven vs. Niels battle. But it's nice to bring in some other characters for a week.

#SVENNESS is presented by Skills, Drills and Bellyaches: A Cyclocross Primer available at www.cyclocrossbook.com and CrossVegas, America's largest cyclocross race, which takes place September 10, 2014, under the lights in Las Vegas, Nevada.
