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.

Licenses?

OK, I think I know that you must have a license to race cross...but which one and how? Just go to usacycling.org and sign up? Clueless, sorry.

Get it AFTER Sep 1. The rates drop as it's only valid for the calendar year purchased.

It depends on your locale. Some race organizations, such as OBRA (in Oregon) require licenses of their own, instead of USCF.

I got the NORBA license since I don't do road races but will do 2 or 3 mtb races. It too comes with a Cat 4 cross designation.
