What is Cyclocross?
For those new to the sport you may be asking ‘What is Cyclocross?’ Although cyclocross shares some aspects of both mountain biking and road racing, it is it’s own sport and you can expect some of the following features including; being on & off the bike, stepping over natural & artificial barriers, quick entry & exiting of corners, hard surfaces transitioning to soft, and negotiating tricky off-camber sections. Don’t let this intimidate you though. Cyclocross if fun!
The length of the course is 2.5-3.5 km and is designed for the skinny-tired cyclocross bike, not a full-suspension mountain bike (a regular mountain bike is tolerable, just expect more friction).
