Dorothy Wong, cyclocross and cycling evangelist
No one has done more to promote cycling and cyclocross in Southern California than Dorothy Wong. She and her husband, Jeff Herring, have been running cyclocross races for the past decade, helping the sport take off here. You can see how much it’s grown in this video–it takes almost a minute for one pack to leap over the barriers–the riders keep coming and coming. At the beginning of the vid Dorothy gives sort of an “I have a dream” speech, a call for all cyclists off all persuasions to come together to show their love for riding.
