Cyclocross National Championship Circa 1976
The 2009 Cyclocross National Championship will be wrapping up this Sunday, December 13 in Bend, Oregon and will be returning to bike town USA (Bend) next year. This is actually the second time in the tour's 34 year history the event will be hosted in Central Oregon. Sunriver, 15 miles to the south of Bend, was the host back in 1976 - the second year the Cyclocross Championships were held.
The video below is some great vintage footage of that event filmed by Phil Sanders of the Beaverton Bicycle Club. (10 minutes)
