MINDFUL VIDEO SERIES
After our 2018/2019 series that focused on Stephen Hype, which chronicled his cerebral journey from injury to national champion, this season picks up with Kaitie Keough. From the Jinglecross World Cup in Iowa to US Cyclocross National Championships, Katie shares her deeply emotion struggles with the challenges that many athletes face at the highest level of the sport.
"WORKING CLASS CYCLOCROSS"
Based in the Pacific Northwest, Team S&M CX is an all-women's professional cyclocross team. The term "working class cyclocross" originated from team owner Erik Tonkin's careful balance of managing and growing Sellwood Cycle Repair while racing full-time across disciplines. Team S&M's grassroots, organic style comes out of this industrious cross-section and has brought forth a strong lineage of top Pacific Northwest racers.
Athletes Clara Honsinger, Beth Ann Orton, Sophie Russenberger, and manager-mechanic Brenna Wrye-Simpson fill out this US-based roster with roots near our US headquarters in Portland, Oregon. We’re excited to watch this all-women's pro team, and newly-crowned US women's national cyclocross champion, Clara Honsinger, as they grow and evolve into such strong racers.
