We had a super awesome rad cyclocross season.
We "cyclocross" all year, so obviously when race season comes around we're ready to go. This year the Ornot Cyclocross team suited up and hit the dirt harder than ever. We traveled in a van, donned some sweet supersuits and entered all the races we could. There was dust, mud, grass, wood chips, broken bikes, new bikes, beer, donuts, pizza, jumps, skids, crashes, and fun.
Check out some of our favorite moments from this season below.
We took a little trip to Las Vegas to see how the pros do it. After racing their course, and seeing how beast they were - we had all the motivation we needed for the season.
Starting off hot at Candlestick.Ornot hit up a bunch of races, but obviously we focused on the local races. Hitting up BASP and Superpro kept things close and fun. Candlestick was HOT!
Making a mess in Portland
Kurt hit up an early race up in the PNW. Mud, hand ups and good times were had. We will definitely be making another trip up there soon.
We went down to Santa Cruz for some real cyclocross conditions.
We voted, and this race came out on top as the best race we did this year. Fun course, great conditions, and a great story.
Ornot hit up the Los Angeles CX scene.We decided to hit up the UCI race down in LA. A fast and flat course saw some great racing, and it was awesome to experience some never ending summer in the middle of October.
Closing out the season.
Finishing up our season with a local race just seemed right. We had a great showing of Ornot colors and some great results. The change in course this year made for a perfect, fast, non technical race.
Up on top, ish.
We don't go out just for podiums, but it helps when we get them. Heres a couple times we got up on the steps of greatness. (Kurt, Adam, Adam, Matt, Ferg Dog)
We made this awesome piece of art.
Ornot partnered up with Ritchey and Stinner to create this beautiful cross machine. This race steed features a beautiful hand made cyclocross frame and a hand painted scheme to match our skin suit. It is also the first bike to feature Ritchey's new tapered disc, thru axel fork and headset. This thing is meant for thrashing in the dirt. You can check out more of the details over HERE.
Wrapping it up.
Ornot had too much fun this year, and we can't wait to do it again. You can count on us for Bar Bags full of beer, port race grilled cheese and sock hand ups next season. Until then, we'll just be standing around waiting for next year, Ornot.
