Issue 17 just might include some of our most important work, with investigative reporting into whether racers can actually make a living racing cyclocross. If we want our sport to grow, and keep its talent, we need to understand the realities of professional salaries, and we uncover these realities for our readers. Ever heard of Tim Johnson? We look back into the star’s early days as a punk kid and his transformation into an icon. We also take a humorous look into the process of finding a cyclocross team, give you tips on how to add intensity to your training, and review the latest cyclocross bikes and gear. Plus interviews with Andrea Smith and Travis Livermon and much more!
