Ritchey CX Diaries
A video series taking a deep look into Ben Frederick’s experiences racing in Belgium during the 2022/23 season.
With the Cyclocross World Championships coming up this weekend, the 2022/2023 ‘cross season is just about over. It’s been a memorable season, with Ritchey rider Ben Frederick fulfilling a lifelong dream of racing at the highest level in Belgium and raising boatloads of money for his Small Monsters project to reduce the stigma around mental illness and bringing awareness to tramautic brain injuries.
With several top-10 finishes, Belgian cyclocross privateer Jens Adams, who rides Ritchey components, also had quite a successful season.
Heck, even the Ritchey marketing team had some fun triumphs between the course tape this fall.
The Ritchey CX Diaries is a video series taking a deep look into Ben’s experiences racing in Belgium this season. Jens also gives his take and insights into the Holy Week of Cyclocross.
