Wilderness 101 in Pictures

5 August 2009 No Comment

As if a 5th place singlespeed finish (fully rigid) in the race wasn’t enough, Nathan Kraxberger (Team Sids-Cannondale) is also one of the most talented photographers we know. Here’s his visual story of the Wilderness 101 pre-race experience.

Leaving Grand Central Station. Racing bikes in Pennsylvania is a little tougher when you don’t own a car.

Chris Steffens casuallly waits for the train.

Gives new meaning to the term “pre-race training.”

Off the train in Westchester.

Jae Choi: host, chauffeur, racer.

Thursday night wrenching session.

Loaded and ready.

A foreboding rain fell on the Friday morning drive.

Finally, Coburn Park and the weekend’s campsite.
