Quad Cross Race Captured

QuadCross Race 2013 Captured

The first local cyclocross race was this past weekend in Maynard, MA. Yes, cross season is officially here! We saw many familiar faces out racing and watching the festivities. We sent our fearless curator, Patria, out to race with a GoPro on her helmet to show, first hand, what a cross race is all about. Here's a video of a full lap of QuadCross. This was her first cross race in years; she comes with a depth of experience road racing, but very little in cyclocross. Enjoy watching the action in the women's 3/4 field!
