The beauty, folly, and challenge of cyclocross was in full display in Cascade Locks on Sunday.

By all accounts, this weekend’s Cross Crusade event out at Cascade Locks was a huge success. Everyone I’ve talked to about it had rave reviews — not just for the usual racing and fun vibe these events have; but for the venue itself. 

It was beautiful out there. Misty, overcast gorge cliffs on one side and the might Columbia River on the other with a course that had all the elements you hope for as a ‘cross racer: singletrack trails, a bit of mud, loose stuff, tight turns, and so on.

I wasn’t able to make it out there myself, but fortunately for all of us I’ve gotten permission from very talented photographer Dylan VanWeelden to share some of his images. Dylan works in marketing for a local manufacturer and he makes pictures on the side. As I think you’ll agree from checking his website, I have a hunch he could make it as a full-time professional photographer if he wanted to.

Check out Dylan’s shots from Cascade Locks to get a taste of this past weekend’s action…
