Behind the Barriers


January 2013


As we are all cyclo-cross crazy at present and its the eve of the 2013 World Cyclo-cross Championship races in the USA, it seemed appropriate for us to draw your attention to this series – Behind the Barriers.


If you haven’t seen this series, which is now in its third year, and are maybe new to cyclo-cross then its well worth a look. It is filmed by Sam Smith and follows affable American Jeremy Powers of the Rapha-Focus team as he treks between Europe and the US racing in a variety of cyclocross events.


Behind the Barriers is an insiders view of pro-level ‘cross racing and makes for great viewing. Of course it helps that the energetic Powers is pleasantly eccentric, always entertaining and very open throughout. During the series you get to see everything that goes on in a pros life with Powers warming-up and cooling down, his mechanics careful preparation of the bikes, in the pits with other racers, meals with his team mates after races, the crazy fans and so on. In this episode he’s at Zolder and Namur in Belgium.


There’s loads more we could say about Behind the Barriers but the best thing is just watch it for yourself. Its superb. Enjoy!
