Astoria, Ore. – You never know who (or what) you might find at the River City Bicycles Cyclocross Crusade Halloween Costume race last Sunday. Travis Bickle the famous taxi driver from New York must have found a fair to the race and we get a bit of insight from him and a word of warning. There is also a word of warning for those who did not dress up. Prepare to be heckled and even sprayed. For those with the most creative costumes Shimano Bikes was giving away some great components.

Portland, Ore. – The US Grand Prix of Cyclocross made the last stop of the tour last weekend for the Stanley Portland Cup. Mostly dry ground was found Saturday at the Portland International Raceway but Sunday it poured, especially the hour before the Elite Women’s race.

Katerina Nash took both Sunday’s race and the 2008 USGP Championship Trophy while local heroine Sue Butler was cheered to a third place finish and the Sram “Most Aggressive Female Rider” award.

Ryan Trebon of Bend took that $250 prize home and won the day’s race. Tim Johnson claimed the series trophy.

I took home a pair of very wet and muddy boots, some videotape, and inspiration for the song “Head Down”, which is the score for this video. Eric Todd Keeney provided additional footage.
