Rapha Cyclocross 2014

Für Außenstehende mag Cyclocross eine etwas undurchsichtige Angelegenheit sein. Doch jeder, der einmal bei einem Querfeldeinrennen dabei war, empfindet anders. Bei kaum einer anderen Disziplin stürzen die Fahrer in rasantem Tempo waghalsige Abfahrten hinab, nur um dann mit dem Rad über der Schulter steile, schlammige Anstiege zu erklimmen. In diesem Winter blickt Rapha im Rahmen der Fotoreihe „Theatres of Cross“ auf die bedeutendsten Radcross-Schauplätze der Welt – abseits des Trubels am Renntag. Rennfahrer und Zuschauer dürfen sich in diesem Jahr auf die Rückkehr der Rapha Super Cross Rennserie freuen, die in Europa, Japan, Australien und den USA Station macht. Der US-amerikanische Meister Jeremy Powers wird dabei in seiner vierten Saison die Farben von Rapha vertreten. Mit Rennberichten und Interviews werden wir Jeremy die ganze Saison über begleiten.

    What makes a great sequel? Is it a simple case of bigger is better, or is it something less tangible? Is it a deepening of the story, the characters, or something unexpected? Whatever the case, sophomoric efforts will always be judged in a harsher light than their freshmen counterparts – for good reason.

    The third season of Rapha Super Cross revelled in something that had so far been lacking – mud. Paul Oldham and Annie Simpson (Hope Factory Racing) swept the individual podiums, gamely pushed and chased by a host of Elite UK ‘crossers from Hargroves RT, Felt Colbornes, and the young guns of the Rapha Great Britain Development squad.
