Now in its third year, the US Open Fat Bike Beach Championship will be heading back to Wrightsville Beach to crown the King and Queen of the sand. Even though the course will be a bit less difficult this year with less of the soft sand which made for grueling straights, Race Director and Chairman Shawn Spencer says the course will still be still be exciting for both racers and spectators. Since the course is laid out in a mile long oval right on the beach, it’s extremely spectator friendly and it will also feature more obstacles this year to keep things interesting for competitors.

If a beach vacation with a little racing thrown in sounds appealing, check out the details next…

Alto Cycling spins out patent-pending new hub axle, adds carbon road tubeless rims

Alto Cycling has updated their hubs with new axles using a keyed assembly design that, along with improved bearing compatibility, makes their already ultra smooth hubs even better. The originals used NSK angular contact radial bearings, but then switched Enduro angular contact bearings, but the design still required some clamp force from the skewers to put the ideal amount of load on the bearings. So while they worked very well, there was room for user error depending on how tightly someone clamped the wheels into the frame. This new design switches to radial bearings and new flanged axles and end caps to remove all axial load from the bearings to they can spin freer than ever.

CX Nats: Shimano’s neutral support Moots PsychloX cyclocross bikes & more pro bikes

We’ve taken a close look at the Mavic neutral support bikes at the Tour de France, but in the pro cyclocross pits it was Shimano providing the backups. With the pros all bringing three or more bikes each, they weren’t getting much use on Sunday, but for the privateers racing earlier in the week, this was likely a welcome sight.

Shimano had an assortment of drivetrain and braking parts mounted to Moots PsychloX titanium cyclocross frames. Some were disc, some still rocked the cantilever brakes, and drivetrains parts were a mix up of well used bits.

Raleigh-Clement’s Jamey Driscoll finished second in the Men’s Elite field, just a couple seconds behind winner Stephen Hyde…and likely would have taken the win had Hyde’s broken derailleur happened even just a hundred feet sooner. Driscoll’s Raleigh RXC was a stock frame, but the parts mix was full of sponsored goods from FSA, Clement, Lizard Skins, K-Edge and TRP.

Team Shimano-Maxxis Danny Summerhill pro bike check with his Parlee Chebacco and prototype Shimano carbon tubular wheels

Sitting outside their completely enclosed team tent were the Parlee Chebacco bikes of Danny Summerhill and teammate Travis Livermon. As part of the Maxxis-Shimano team, their bikes were kitted out with a full Shimano Dura-Ace group except the bottom bracket, and were running a mix of carbon tubulars…some XTR, some prototype. And the big chainring was team issue only.
