The Rover & Richard Sachs at CX Nationals

The 2017 edition of cyclocross nationals featured challenging conditions for racers and mechanics alike. To Be Determined's official mechanical partner, The Rover Cycle Co, was in attendance working with the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team

To Be Determined's own Roger Parmelee documented the experience from start to finish including initial equipment preparation, race warm-ups and of course post-race celebrations.

The theme of the week was the weather. Sunday was sunny but cold compared to the gray, cold and snowy on Saturday.
