For weeks all over social media, we’ve heard that #CrossIsComing – well, now it’s here – Cyclocross is back! The new cyclocross season has started and kids (and adults) up and down the country are participating in the exciting world of CX racing. Some for the first time, and others who couldn’t wait to get back in the mud.
Cyclocross is bicycle racing on a field completing laps of a circuit with short, steep banks and many twists and turns over grass and mud, and sometimes through sand.
Cyclocross is muddy. Perhaps your first race in the season was on a drier course due to the time of year and the weather. But (and it’s a big BUT), as the season progresses and the weather turns, you will get muddy.
