Adam Myerson is one of my favourite personalities in cyclocross. He’s recently retired from being a pro cyclocross and road racer, has been running CX races in the USA for over 25 years, and has a fantastic online presence as a cyclocross analyst.
We talked about the 2015-6 European season, the state of USA CX (and why referring to it as a single scene is a misnomer), how the sport has changed, and everything from “Why can’t Sanne smile?” to Femke van den Driessche’s motorised bike at the 2016 CX Worlds, with a focus on the women but talking a lot about the men’s side of the sport as well. And we’re joined by Myerson’s baby son Flynn, leading to a conversation about Adam’s new life as a stay-at-home dad, as well as the book he’s writing.
