If it''s just dirty that's one thing but if it's globed on thick that's another. I suppose it's possible that the chemistry of the mud could mess with parts or paint IDK. Some people choose to just...

It's got all the ingredients of a good cross course but it's too short imo. But then again sometimes you just have to make due with the space that you have too.

Technically speaking single track is not aloud in cyclocross. Many courses have it and I personally like it a lot but if you design a course by the book then the entire path of the course has to be a...

Th Cannondales are not bad at all as far as AL goes but a carbon or even a steel frame is way better on a CX course. Having raced all three steel is the most comfortable but carbon is so nice and...

The problem with getting in a group during a cross race is that you will then be traveling at the groups speed. While doing that there will be some one else out there going faster whether they are in...

Pretty much everywhere. Unless maybe the course was designed by a mountain biker and then you have bad course design.

I just did a race last weekend that had no tape on single track wooded sections and well mowed paths in tall grass. I agree it would be wasteful but I suppose in our litigious society that some...

I don't see how tubulars are a PIA. I've had the same tires glued on my race and pit wheels now for 4 years. No problem at all and still on nice and strong. Expensive? Yes true.

Generally speaking if you are not passing anyone then you are going backwards. My philosophy has always been that a cross race is more like an individual TT then anything else and so you should not...

IIRC the Carolina Cup isn't really a crit course per se it's a bit longer. The rollers are insignificant. You will ride the big ring the whole time. IT seems to me it could be a good course to get...
