Embrace Outside with Molly Hurford


Mud, Snow and Cyclocross: How ‘Cross Took Over US Cycling is out, and awesome (if I do say so myself). You can buy it here!

You can also  read a sample here. (The gorgeous cover photo is thanks to Pedal Power Photography!)


Ed Medina wrote an AMAZING article that was published in The Boson Globe all about cyclocross, with a whole piece interviewing me and talking about the book and how people can get into cyclocross. So exciting!

I also was lucky enough to be featured on Tour Chats with Neil Browne and Dan Wuori, where I talked about the book and cyclocross, showed off my cowbell tattoo, and generally had an amazing time.

There have also been a few great reviews of the book that have come out lately. The Washing Machine Post from the UK did one, as did Scum City Racing.

The lovely people over at HalfWheelHell did a review of Mud, Snow and Cyclocross, and Daryl Grisson had some nice things to say:

“Within one month’s time, many racers across the Mid-Atlantic region will be pulling their skinsuits out again, visualizing hole-shots and packing their race bags for the opening race of the cyclocross season. It’s a fall tradition with European roots. But it’s a fall tradition that has taken off here in America with its own special flavors and characteristics. Love it or hate it (or do both in the course of single race!), ‘cross is trend in American cycling that gets bigger every year. This year, however, it gets its “getting bigger” chronicled, analyzed and explained in a new book by Molly Hurford, editor of Cyclocross Magazine. Mud, Snow, and Cyclocross: How  ‘Cross Took Over  US  Cycling will both whet your appetite for the coming season and help you understand a bit more about why we do ‘cross the way we do it here, both in the Mid-Atlantic region and across the United States as well. If you race ‘cross, you want to order this book and read it before you roll up to your first starting grid of the season. But you’ll want to act quickly: the book is on pre-sale now and, just pre-registration for a ‘cross race, there are benefits to being first!”

Colt from CyclingDirt did an interview with me at USGP Sun Prairie, which was a blast, even though I talk on video about why reading is way better than watching a video…
