The 2007 Cyclocross National Championships were held in Wyandotte Park in Kansas City, KS last December, and a film crew was on hand to capture the event in all of it’s muddy, snowy, icy, gritty glory. Here is the film’s trailer:
Zero Traction is a feature-length cyclocross film that was shot entirely in high definition over the four days of competition. It was produced by Keith Walberg of Gizmo Pictures, and DVDs of the film will soon be available for purchase in both standard definition and HD. The film will also be shown in Kansas City during the 2008 Cyclocross National Championships (located this year in Missouri’s Tiffany Springs Park).
Zero Traction gives you the real feel of what it is like to experience hard-core cyclocross racing in extreme weather conditions including driving snow, mud, ice and frozen mud. The film features racing action shot in slow motion, allowing you to see details you never see with the naked eye. You’ll also see interviews from Steve Tilford, Todd Wells and elite men’s champion Tim Johnson. The film features action from multiple races over four days culminating with the exciting elite women’s and men’s championships.
Registration for the 2008 Cyclocross National Championships, which take place December 11-14 at Tiffany Springs Park in Kansas City, MO, is now open. So if you have the guts, take your shot at grabbing some of the glory!
Thanks to Steve Tilford for the heads-up on this.
