VERGE Cycle-Smart Northampton Cyclocross Video and Photos 2008
They used to hold this race at UMASS/Amherst years ago, right near my old dorm, Van Meter out near Orchard Hill. A few years ago they moved it here to Look Park in Northampton. The park is large enough to still accommodate its rapid growth.
I brought my Mom and my son. Mom was snapping pictures and enjoying herself–it was her first bike race. She compared it a little to when her brother raced motocross back in the 70’s. I guess bikes are a family thing–one way or another. We caught the Men’s Cat 2/3 race and most of the Women’s Elite race before my son had had enough, and we headed home. What a great weekend for ‘cross racing here in New England!
