After the opening races at Intelligentsia Cup one overriding theme moved to the forefront for the rest of the weekend: the heat. In fact Saturday's Lake Bluff Criterium is the only time I have totally and completely overheated on the bike - winding up in the medical tent after the race as mid-afternoon temperatures hovered in the mid-to-high 90's.

This time of year we spend our weekday evenings playing cyclocross but it wasn’t so long ago that weeknights were spent either racing crits or sneaking in some sprint practice with some fellow NYC riders in Red Hook. A few images from the latter, from an evening with our friends from Team NYC Velo.

I'd best describe the Hartford Riverfront Cyclocross race as 'unique'. Even in the midst of grass crit season the course was surprisingly non-technical and a huge contrast from the "Wood Shed" at Silk City CX the day prior.

Wednesday night may be the official evening of cross practice in NYC but with a slow week in the office, near perfect weather and the opening weekend of cyclocross just a few days away the timing was perfect for an impromptu evening of cyclocross.

Of all of the potential conversations to have with my seventy two year old father, gearing strategies and cornering techniques for his first criterium would have fallen pretty low on my list of expected subject matter. Though reflecting on the past several months I probably should have anticipated this outcome.
