    The cyclocross stars aligned and we had the opportunity to talk with Sven Nys a few hours before he took the win at the 2014 Cross Vegas. The idea was to do a SVENNESS with SVEN. Sit down with the man and get his take on different race situations. Why he chooses the lines he does, how he recovers from adversity, how to ride the sand. We look at several clips from last year's European racing season, including the Superprestige race at Ruddervoorde, the GP Mario De Clercq, a BPost Bank Trophy race, and the Belgian National Championship. It turns out that not only can Nys do amazing things between the tape, but he's a great teacher to and is exceptional at breaking down the why behind the wow. Sven gives a detailed breakdown of his technique, mindset and strategy along with tips for the everyday cyclocross racer. A full rundown on how this all came to be is at CXHairs.com. Special thanks to Bruce Buckley for stepping in as a cameraman for the video. Also, a big thanks to Matt Shriver and the folks at Trek Bikes, and Brook at Cross Vegas. Want a SVENNESS shirt?

        • Houdini FLIP- Greeble Splash- FX Test


          from NiallHornVFX Added

          This is some Christmas RnD I worked on for around 4 days, I just got a new machine before Christmas and wanted to learn the basics of Houdini's FLIP. I planned to do a WhiteWater Sim also, but found out that Houdini Apprentice does not let you export through Alembic ROP so I plan if I get time to PRT The Whitewater and render through Frost as tiny spheres which is nearly as quick as rendering through Alembic proxy. I am still working on a big RealFlow shot, and right now I perfer RealFlow alot more than Houdini! (Houdini is very fast though) Meshed Through Frost and Velocities via Krakatoa rendered as a ExtraTex Pass and comp'd into a Refraction pass to get the really nice bubble refraction whitewater. Sim Time Info on Video, Comp'd in AE. I also did some more Ocean Shader RnD to get more Attenuation/Depth in shader. Note its not SSS. The Greeble is done through the amazing Modifier by Max Klanky. Thanks to Graham, Sam Taylor, Igor for there help! Blog Article I wrote, quite detailed on the Workflow of this test and rendering through Max/PRT- http://niallhornvfx.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/houdini-flip-greeble-splash-rnd-last-of.html Thanks For Watching, Happy New Year- N

                  In #SVENNESS 2.4 we recap the first UCI World Cup race of the season, which took place at Valkenburg. The ep focuses on race management in the early moments, a tricky descent, disc brakes, power sections and bad luck. But more than anything #SVENNESS 2.4 focuses on the arrival of Lars van der Haar. We know he's the fastest off the blocks and can finish among the best in the world, but can he win? As always, #SVENNESS is brought to you by Skills, Drills and Bellyaches: A Cyclocross Primer.

                      from Kona Bikes Added 21.4K 104 3

                      On any given weekend during late summer through to early winter, cyclocross racers of all ages gather to test their mettle through mud and frozen grass, up and over obstacles, from Europe to North America and beyond. Kona has always loved cyclocross racing, from the camaraderie to the challenge, and of course, the unadulterated fun. As a testament to that passion, we follow three Kona cross racers from age 9 to 33. Two racers from Rad Racing NW, one of the top youth development cycling programs in the U.S., to Kona Team rider Helen Wyman, one of the top female cross racers in the world. For us, it's not only about creating bikes for future champions, but also inspiring a love for cycling that lasts a lifetime.
