Cyclocross, like soccer, is a primarily known as a European discipline, a wintertime endeavor with its own stars that takes over while the big-name road racing season goes on its ever shorter cold-season respite. Like soccer, we have our own cyclocross races here, and one of them is the Bilenky Junkyard 'Cross in Philadelphia, put on by Bilenky Cycle Works.

Red Bull, seemingly becoming the Amazon of action sports, took a crew out to the graveyard of automobilia known as Big Guy's Auto Parts to cover the eighth annual race. The three-minute video below won't give you any idea of what cyclocross is, but you'll see lots of bike riders jumping around, through and over "manufactured goods and diseased ground," and that certainly has its charms, too.

      Ever shorter cold season? Don't tell that to the 17 consecutive years of no new warming.

      That type of location is now referred to as an "Auto Recycling Center", once the parts are organized.
