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.

'cross Porn

There are so many cyclocross video clips to see on YouTube and other sites now. This one is new and, so far, my all time favorite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv4MYJfa_xI.
I was at Granogue on Saturday. Great course, awesome day.

Post your favorite clip.

Watch that first man through, about the only guy to clean that section. He just rode straight by the apex, until he got to the grass on the edge of the course where there was some traction. Smart move.

The remount was actually quite good.

That might have come from his triathlon days, as I understand that good triathletes will do some form of flying remount, especially in sprint events.

The guy that did the Granogue / Wissahickon clip just put out a good one from the USGP in Kentucky this past weekend. You can see it and others from earlier in the season at his website www.cyclofile.com.
Anybody know what the music is in the Kentucky clip? I know I've heard it, but can't remember who it is.

The ten minute clip that dronkert posted from this year's Koppenberg (sp?) cross is epic, for so many reasons. I highly recommend checking it out.

It would be even better if I spoke Flemish, and they had shown the men's race. Hopefully that's coming in episode 2.

Woops, I watched the 10 minute intro to the mens race clip. You're right, that looked like an awesome race. I still wish I understood Flemish, if that's what they're speaking.

I've met a few of the Henry's guys. Ride for FSVS, sponsored by Henry's, but I live down south of Dover so haven;t gotten up there too often.

Sweet. I spent a couple of years (part-time) in a shop in NJ. Great experience, great way to learn. Great way to convince yourself you need the hundreds of dollars of bike specific tools I have in the basement.

And I just e-mailed Rik through FSVS to try and find a cheap cross frame for me.

Wow, that's interesting. But what's more interesting is this clip of, current world champion, Erwin Vervecken talking about juniors coming up in 'cross.
