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.

Love....

As someone who rides an eleven year old Fuji Cross and a 2014 Trek Domane, I think I need to start saving up my money:

yea seems a good mix of the 2 , the domane seat suspension and wider tire capacity..

even better if you get Sven Nys as a motor transplant.

Having Nys, Compton helps big time!
Bigger names sell more bikes, you can't say they didn't have plans on signing these 2.

It just so happens/ its alleged , this may be Nys last season too.
"I better buy one cause it will be the last he rides..."

Trek can't have a US champ in road cycling, they dropped Horner.
So they go for the closest thing in CX, Compton, & her stars, & stripes/Red, white, & blue.
Trek knows what they're doing!
