    Cyclocross and Hybrid section?

    Prolly gonna get flailed for this.....
    To me these two bike types are bastard children of road and mountain bikes. So why not just expand the current Cyclocross section and include Hybrids?
    It's unfair to have a Cyclocross section all to its own since it is nothing more than a road bike with mtb orientation.

    People who use Cyclocross bikes have little in common with people who use hybrids.

    I hope that wasn't your best idea of the day.

    I got it! How 'bout a Bastard Section for loozers on Bastard Bikes who all the Haters, Roadies, and assorted Big Meanies are allegedly picking on because or their choice in bicycling equipment?

    Only to those who are insecure.... One can always hide in the Hybrid section. J/K... Congrats on the new section.

    The commuting section comment just for the benefit of those who does not venture there, is Cyclocross is often the choice for commuters.

    Commuting makes perfect sense.

    A ton of commuters ride hybrids.

    Another ton of commuters ride cyclocross bikes.

    Another ton ride road bikes.

    Just a second. What am I trying to say here?
