Seems like there is a lot of footage of Cyclocross around this time. Maybe cause, tis the season for getting down and dirty in the mud!

Like for instance, the UCI world Championships in Belgium. Videographer, Laurent Charras of Petitesreines has really captured some stunning footage. Here are a couple of great mini docs.

Amolador is the portuguese word for grinder, or knife sharpener. These skilled knife sharpeners push their bikes through the streets, playing a distinctive tune on pan flutes to signal their presence.
Their bikes serve as a mobile workshop, with a sharpening stone mounted on the top tube, a tool box strapped to the back, and umbrellas draped over the handlebars.

Jimmy Rushmore, Clint Reynolds, Robbo & Louie ‘Bambi’ Mire pack up and head out with Coxie and Dye from Santander in the North of Spain and trek all the way down to Malaga in the far South.
Clint Reynolds managed to smash his hip into bits real early on the trip, but still hobbled around like a trooper with some crutches salvaged by Coxie.
Brief cameo by Ruben Alcantara on his huge dirt quarter in Malaga.
