When PDXCross burst onto the local cyclocross scene back in 2008, the bar was officially raised when it came to cyclocross photography. Simply put, these guys nailed it. There was something special happening in Portland’s cyclocross scene and these guys were telling the story each week with some of the best photos of bicycling I’ve ever come across. In the years since, they’ve built a huge following, published the Dirty Pictures coffee table book, and have continued to produce breathtaking and inspiring images of the sport we all love.
Now, two of the PDXCross crew — Rob Finch and Jamie Francis — have released a short film called ‘Cross-Dressed’, which gives viewers a glimpse of the madness that is the annual Cross Crusade Halloween weekend. Based around the Bend Halloween cyclocross festival back in October, the 14-minute film garnered Audience Choice honors at Filmed by Bike earlier this month. And it’s easy to see why: Much like their images do, the film succeeds in capturing the distinct spirit and style of Oregon cross.

Thank you Rob and Jamie. It’s an inspiring piece of work and you have done an awesome job telling this story.
