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.

Meeusen ditch hopping

Cool video at todays jaarmarktcross showing Meeusen technique of flying over a big ditch that all others were riding through. Way to go for Nys today too!

If you have not yet found it, this belgian sporza website seems to consistently have the best fresh video clip of euro cross racing action this season.

Sporza will even broadcast most races live, in the afternoon. Even this Friday. Cycling Fans often posts links to livestreams.

I could TOTALLY see J-Pow doing this. I'd even throw down on it. Of course, I would case the jump and snap my forks off in the process.

Great jump! I'm with MS. I'd be kissin' the ground on the other side. Either that, or end up getting passed in the following section from wearing myself out doing it in the first place.

I feel so inadequate...

Got to watch the badasses in the singlespeed race yesterday powerhouse it up the runup and hop the log barrier at the top. Then watch this super rad ditch jump today. Man, I've got a lot of work to do this winter.
