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.

Two questions:

Is that freeway shot right by Alpine Valley?

and

What team is that with the all-black skinsuits?

Bare Knuckle Brigade
The team is basically run by the lalonde brothers (#'s 1 and 3? mountainbikers in WI/MN/IL) They almost all run SS steel rigs for cross and general mountainbiking

Yeah ... that's Alpine Valley. That's gotta be one of the bigger climbs in this area ... guess it got it's name for a reason. Maybe next race weekend we'll get some MUD !
