At a spectacular venue at Lake Cunningham Park in San Jose, CA, Murphy Mack and SuperPro Racing in conjunction with USA Cycling will be hosting the UCI’s Masters Cyclocross World Championships this January.

Next to the Uncle Sam Race in Troy, the Saratoga SPA:CX cyclocross race is probably the ‘cross race that I enjoy the most. It’s a fast and also challenging course in Saratoga Spa State Park. It has fields, and sand, and off camber, and mud, and singletrack. It is such a fun course to race on. I feel like I always ride well in Saratoga, and that’s one of the reasons that I look forward to this race every year.
This year, I might have had, my best ride of the ‘cross season at Saratoga. While I still finished way down the line, I did finished on the lead lap, which is always one of my goals going into the race. I rode hard and consistent and felt strong. When it was over, I knew that I had raced as hard as I could. And it was the first ‘cross race this season that I didn’t feel a little discouraged. I finish in 11th place and felt great doing it.
And here is the first lap of the Master’s race…yep, I’m somewhere behind the guy with the camera.
