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 wish I could make it home for a race or two! I'm from Aberdeen but lived in the US for 15 years.

Cynikal I think stopping is the least of your worries!

yeah. the Kingdom of Fife is between the Firth's, south of Aberdeen.
Unlike in WA, where Fife is a run down stretch of hwy99/Pac Hwy and is north of Aberdeen.

the fact that you know about one of them is impressive.
or points suspiciously to your being an ex-resident.
interestingly, I spent the first part of my life in the bay area. eerr Santa Rosa, actually, before moving up here.

Resurrecting this thread with another one from across The Pond, log on to http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/cyc...-5--Bradford-0 and then click on the the Mud video. I suspect disks would have made very little difference
