Recently, the Pan Am cyclocross championships came to Midland, Ont. Many of Canada’s top CXers were there vying for the intercontinental honours. Hours before Michael van den Ham lined up in the elite men’s race, he met with producer Adam Killick for a crash course on riding in the sand.

For more on the Pan Am CX champs, check out video from within the elite men’s race. Web editor Terry McKall hangs on for as long as he can, trying to avoid the 80 per cent rule, which clears off riders before the race leaders might lap the slower CXers.

This fall, Ted Glenn released his book, Riding into Battle, which focuses on the combat cyclists of the Canadian Corps and what they faced in during the First World War. The fighting was fierce and the bikes were heavy.

Finally, David Jack, coach and derny driver at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre, speaks about the art of managing a keirin race and how a wrong turn led him deeper into the Japanese keirin scene.
