Today we watched our first ever cyclocross race. Here are a few snaps of the fun:
The race took place at Camp Harlow and is part of the OBRA cyclocross racing season.
I am now thinking of training for cyclocross in the future. The event looked fun, is rather low-key, and is open to all levels. It reminded me of a 10k road run where some come to win and most come for their personal goals and the challenge. Unlike the tense and high-strung world of road racing, cyclocross is more like a family affair with some very serious competitors, but most just having a lot of fun.

It’s a great goal to set for yourself. But I think the safe choice is to make sure you’re properly prepared and equipped, too.
Best get a new bike.
Mike has been racing cyclocross for the past few years and absolutely loves it. Go for it!
