Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Applecrest Orchards, first race and DFL!

So just did my first race today in the men's 3/4 cat. Got my ass totally handed to me (Although apparently some people dropped out behind me). It was at Applecrest Farms and alot of fun.

Only thing that drove me nuts was that my left SPD cleat stripped the plate in my shoe and decided to turn 90 degrees half a lap into the race. That quickly made everything alot more interesting.

In any case I can see why this is so much fun!

(Sorry for like the pointless thread)
