Worth here with a few thoughts and pics from yesterday's World Cup Cyclo-cross held in Fayetteville.
My thought bubble: This may be the most underrated sport in the U.S.
- Yes, it rained. And yes, it was muddy, and yes even a little cold at the end.
But this is a good, fun time for all ages. There's drama, showmanship, fierce athletic grit, and my oh my, can these women and men ride bikes.
- There's a level of camaraderie among those watching I haven't seen in another sport. It was probably the mud.
- As I heard one spectator shout at the end of the last race: "We should do this every Wednesday!"
The bottom line: Start planning now to attend the 2022 Union Cycliste Internationale World Championship held in Fayetteville Jan. 28–30.
