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.

I'm a little disappointed not to see any responses to this.

I raced as the Dread Pirate Roberts on Sunday. Here's a picture from before the race, sans helmet.



It turns out that the average person, including our race announcer, isn't able to distinguish between the Dread Pirate Roberts and Zorro. Oh well.

The costume didn't work quite as well with the required helmet.

Yeah, just cheap costume-store boot tops. Of course, two minutes into the race both shoes and boot tops were covered with mud. They did keep a bit of the mud out of the insides of my shoes. I might have to wear them again next week.


OK, now seriously, no one else raced in costume this week? Really?

I showed up on Sunday at my race as the slowest person ever on two wheels. I really committed to the character.

Here's mine. Loosely based on a modern Navy/USMC pilot (EA-6B Prowler)

I dressed up a Pro Cyclocross racer Wendy Simms and got my photo taken with her. My bike dressed up as her Kona Queen Ann. I raced without the belly.



My wife dressed up as a figure skater
