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.

Video tutorials?

Does anyone have a good stash of video tutorials for trail-riding skills (on CX bikes)? There seems to be a lot of material about full-suspension mountain bikes and hopping roots and obstacles and such, but I haven't found much about trail riding on suspension-less bikes that isn't as "acrobatic".

Any recommendations are welcome.

In for the replies There are some good CX technique videos out there but they all seem to focus on CX-specific skills like mounting, barriers, etc.

I doubt there is out there for trail riding with a CX bike simply because there are so few people who even attempt that. Maybe search for hardtail or rigid MTB riding tips? The physics of bike handling should be the same, just different handlebars and narrower tires.
