Dan Kaufman of CrankMyChain! Cycle TV has posted his video from last weekend’s Cross Crusade Halloween fest.

It’s an awesome video that captures the fun-loving spirit of Portland’s signature cyclocross series, the River City Bicycles Cross Crusade.

Not only does the video capture the zany costumes, racing action, and characters of the Crusade, but (as usual) Dan created and performed an original song to go with it (accompanied by PDOT’s Greg Raisman on harmonica!).

Watch the video via YouTube below, or go to for a higher quality version.

Happy Halloween!

    Thank you, Jonathan!!

    One of the viewers, though, pointed out that I neglected many of the women racers. So I put together at quick top-ten video.
    Now I\’ve probably opened another can of worms.

    Oh, and I do have some footage of Mr. Maus \”Sprockette for a Day\”.

    I am holding it ransom and will deliver to the highest bidder. 😉
