SRAM Goes Gangnam, or SRAMgnam, Style for Cyclocross

There’s simply no denying cyclocross is the new mountain biking. The party atmosphere, the costumes, the cowbells… Good times. Nice to see even the pros aren’t taking themselves too seriously.

And, yes, those appear to be SRAM hydraulic disc brakes in a few sequences. Switch it to hi def and big screen then get that pause finger ready.

USA Cycling is going to spend the next few days trying to take this video down. Cyclocross is serious business. Fun is no good for the sport.

Wow, I’ve never thought that Korean song gets reputations especially in bike community :D – Not Yet international a Korean comment from S.Korea : haha

Slightly entertaining. But i’m happy these guys race cross and aren’t dancers.

“There’s simply no denying cyclocross is the new mountain biking.”

Eh?

Quantum fail.

Mountain biking is the new mountain biking.

Gillis - 12/13/12 - 3:43pm

This is probably why I don’t ride Sram equipment.

Gillis - 12/13/12 - 3:44pm

cycling is the new biking

digi - 12/13/12 - 5:16pm

why?

Psi Squared - 12/13/12 - 6:48pm

Why not? Oh, wait. This is crowd is a serious crowd. Have a drink, and let’s take ourselves a bit less seriously, eh?

This is amazing how talented they are on their bikes, and yet are so bad dancing on their feet.

UGH IT MAKES ME SO MAD TO SEE SOMETHING SO INNOCUOUS BE ENJOYED BY PEOPLE I DONT KNOW!!!!

Professore - 12/13/12 - 8:46pm

Ugh. I was hoping we were past this. It’s the new Macarena.

Ck - 12/14/12 - 12:17am

Us take ourselves less seriously? This is BikeRumor. Where every commenter is a bicycle fitting expert who also just so happens to be a top-level materials engineer. How dare you think we can sit back and not rage at something like this.

Ain’t got nothing on the XTERRA crew. Check out how it is really done at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XmDrDNiY5Q&feature=youtu.be

@ Ck – too right – everyone is so serious! it’s almost Christmas – festive cheer folks.

Now if I am to be serious for a minute – cough, cough -

@ G.. ”Quantum fail.” – all too often people misuse the word ‘quantum’ =, the term is the study of the smallest possible particle movements (originating in the world of quantum mechanics) – people & G.. in this instance, are misusing the term. It would be better not to use the word at all. ‘Fail’ would mean you think the video is ‘sh1t’, ‘quantum fail’ means a tiny fail . . . perhaps.

Merry Christmas everyone!

obviously, the only people takin it “too” serious are the one’s offended by everyone else makin light fun of it.
