i was driving around running some errands yesterday when i passed by a local park. i noticed all these yellow ribbons defining a path throughout the entire park...and a bunch of guys on bikes that looked like they were racing!
well...as soon as i got home, i looked online for events at this park. i found out it was a usa cycling cyclocross event put on by some organization called tailwind.
so here's my question...what is cyclocross? i see that it goes all over the grass. but i swear...those guys were on road bikes! but...i was looking form a distance while driving through traffic in my car. can i use my '07 Specialized Roubaix Expert Compact Rival for cyclocross? would i have to modify it in any way?
