InterBike, the biggest bike show in North America, converged on Las Vegas this week. The Team Sports crew flew out for meetings and to walk the show and here are a few things that caught our eye.

Probably the coolest product of the show - The new Stages Dash. Nearly unlimited display options and metrics, easy Stages calibration tools, split screen displays so you can toggle through screens while keeping a few metrics locked on another side of the screen, works with other power meters, and landscape mode are just a few of the many features.

This bike was just HOT. Alchemy is a small hand-made bike brand from Colorado and they recently entered the mountain bike world with this beauty. The frame and shock alone retail for well over $3,000.

Cross Vegas is always a draw for people coming to Interbike. But this year it was an even larger event. For the first time, the USA's biggest cross race was given UCI World Cup status, meaning many of the worlds best came out to race under the lights of Vegas.

Trek's new team, Telenet, had a large contingent of athletes racing.

Cross Vegas is no doubt the most unique World Cup event on the circuit. The men's pro race started at 9pm and much of the course is on near perfect grass.

World Champion, Wout Van Aert, crashed early in the race and looked to be out of contention. After successfully bridging back to the lead group, he proved why he wears the world champ colors by leaving the rest of the field in the dust to take the win.

That's a wrap from Vegas. The triathlon world was not that well represented at Interbike so we look forward to seeing much more new stuff in Kona!
