THE YOUTH MOVEMENT. YANNICK ECKMAN

One of the big stories from the Boulder Cup last weekend was this 14 year old kid pictured above, Yannick Eckman, (and his brother aint no slouch either) who started two minutes behind the men's Cat 3 race and worked his way through nearly 100 riders in that group, including the Freak, and demolished the field. It was zen mojo superjuker like, all though he is a little too green in the shorts to classify as a superjuker....

Taylor Phinney on the other hand was dealt a tougher card in the men's elite field as the Cyclocross suffer gremlins forced a dnf out of this monster of the oval...

  1. LG,
    Unrelated to the "youth movement," I read your post in CXMag. Truly moving. It is good people like you that make cycling a fun activity for me. There were 3 things that made the Boulder Cup so great on Sunday; Meeting you, meeting Travis Brown, and drinking beer w/the Rocky Mounts Crew.
