If you don’t already know, cyclocross is a hybrid of mountain biking and road biking, developed by the Belgians to keep themselves in shape for cycling during the fall and winter. It’s on a short 3-4 mile track, usually both on and off road, with obstacles such as stairs, super steep inclines, barriers, etc., all designed to make the race as hard as possible. It’s super fun to come out and watch the races, drink some beers, heckle some riders and even more fun to jump in and acutally race.
