What Matt said…
As he has gotten old(er…) Sven has learned to do just enough to win the races.
He figures out the places on the course where he has an advantage, and he bides his time until the attack.
He mails it in on the starts, letting the quick kids ride away early, and diesels up to ‘em later.

This is the cyclocross community we know and love seen at MFG Cyclocross Woodland. This racer crashed hard and the fans helped with the bike and found a spot for her to sit down.
After catching her breath, she got back in the race, and they roared for her.
No heckling, only encouragement and a community’s desire to see everyone start and finish the race.

Presenting the Zach Trap! A new closer tape-to-barrier course setup style, as it was sent to me.
At the race this weekend in Louisville, the course designers are setting Zach Traps to ensure racers cross the barriers and NOT going around them.
Updated: In case the “go over the barriers” memo wasn’t received, the course designers have created inset barriers just to make sure.
Nice socks and 1/2 a suffer face from Jeremy Dunn in Portland. Read his report from this race on The Athletic Tumblr.
There’s a race this weekend, but then life happens.
