A Season in the Slop: The 2018 Cyclocross Season in Photos
It’s fitting that the US cyclocross season wrapped up by taking one last mud bath at Nationals—where 15-time champ Katie Compton called the conditions the most ‘epic’ of all the nationals she’d ever raced. This was the wettest year on record for a number of cities on the east coast, and the weather delivered one of the muddiest cyclocross seasons in recent memory. In summary, Climate Change beat us all this season. We are burnt-out to a crisp. But before we go, let’s take a last look at our favorite photographs and races from the 2018 ‘cross season. A big thanks to all of the photographers who trekked to each race this year to capture our best (and worst) moments.

Sixteen-year-old Lizzy Gunsalas raced in Men’s category 3 in the each of the ultra-competitive NECX Vittoria Series and beat TBD on multiple occasions this season. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for this bright talent.
Steven Hyde returned from injury to annihilate the field just before Nationals, while Katie Keough cruised to victory. Spencer Petrov, well, was Spencer.
