Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking 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.

Tour de Groundhog Cross Race

I am just posting this in anticipation of my upcoming cross race on Sunday. The race is put on by my team and this will be my first year riding for them and in it. Naturally, the forecast for Sunday isn't particularly good (high of 26 and mostly sunny), but it could be worse. This will be the first race for my new cross bike which I built up, a Ridley Crossbow, pictured below. Hopefully all goes well and my girlfriend will be willing to stand the cold and take some pictures for everybody. I am pumped since this is my first race since the fall and I have been training my arse off. I was persuaded to race in the open Classic race, and know I will have some steep competition. Anyway, I will post some photos and a race report on Sunday or Monday. Enjoy the weekend everybody! ROn

I'll be there doing the Masters race at noon. I'll see how it goes and maybe do the Classic Open also.

Here's a link to the race info:
