#CYCLOCROSS is coming right? No, Cyclocross IS here. The first weekend of October has served up some cooler weather and some hot racing. Out east at the Providence KMC weekend the Alpha Junior CX Team pb/Moots took to the field with top level support in the pits and strong legs on the course. With a week of rain leading up to the event a mud fest was predicted as well as hurricane Joaquin working its way up the east coast it could of had the makings for a truly epic setting for anyone racing at Rogers Williams Park. But as the weekend approached, Joaquin moved east and left the course tacky and smooth instead of a slog fest. Reigning national champions Gage Hecht and Katie Clouse let it fly over the two day event and scored podiums both days, with strong showings for Brannan Fix & Ashley Zoerner in the Elite Mens/U23 and Elite Womens/U23.
A good friend of Moots was on hand and sent these pictures he snapped.
Up next for the team are two weekends of racing in Colorado at Cross of the North and US PRO CX. Come out and watch these kids fly!
Reigning National Junior Champion Gage Hecht at speed and taking 2nd both days in hard fought battles.

Ashley Zoerner rails a corner in the Women’s Elite/U23.
Katie Clouse stood on the top step both days. Her Moots right out front!
Up close with the machines the Alpha Bicycle Company/Subaru
Team are racing this year —
Moots is supplying them with a mix of the Psychlo X RSL and the re-introduced Psychlo X (with 142 x 12 thru-axles).
Chris King is supporting with head sets and bottom brackets. TRP is taking care of brakes and forks,
DT SWISS is on the wheels & Clement makes sure they have traction through the changing conditions of the season.
A BRILLIANT PACKAGE THAT WILL BE EASY TO SERVICE DURING DOMESTIC AND EUROPEAN CAMPAIGNS THIS SEASON.
Brannan Fix dug deep and placed well in the Elite Men/U23 field.
