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.

Oh, Wafflecross!

Is there anything more fun than a cyclocross race? Yes, lots of stuff, but we do it anyway. It's a painful kind of fun, like a colonoscopy, or a Who's the Boss marathon. This race was awesome. Great course, huge crowd, and lots of waffles. There is nothing like it.


Let me know what you think. Reply or @thedomestique

I was with you until you gave examples.

That course looks like it needs some rain. I like the short little barriers. I'd think some of the mountain bikers wouldn't even bother hopping those. Small stuff like that you can usually just roll over, right?

Yeah, why are people dismounting for those "barriers?" Otherwise, great vid.

At first I thought those cups had syrup in the bottom but then I realized it was beer (right?) and got a bad taste in my mouth...

That said, I now wish I had a local Wafflecross.
