Cyclocross (sometimes known as CX) is a mix between road roading and cross country mountain biking. Races generally happen in the Winter and Autumn over short courses with racers avoiding obstacles (which may require dismounting), riding on grass, gravel, step hills and more. It’s a muddy, fun experience for all ages of riders.

Race Overview

Cyclocross (CX) Racing involve multiple laps of a short, non technical, mixed terrain circuit. Racing will be the “mini – enduro” format with who ever completes the most laps in 45 minutes being declared the winner. Where CX differs from traditional Cross Country Racing is the addition of barriers, run ups and other sections of track where participants need to dismount and run with their bikes.

Bikes

All types of bike (and rider) are welcome to get involved, and get rad! (as long as they have 2 working brakes, and bar plugs in the handlebars)

Getting There

Results

Well… you certainly can’t complain about today. The weather, the frequently sloppy and occasionally scary (on a CX bike anyway) course, the turnout, and the spectators braving the conditions to cheer (or point and laugh at) the competitors.

For some reason the gremlins got into the timing system, and a number of riders didn’t have any data recorded. I don’t know if this is due to low battery power, faulty chips (a first for us if so), or something else. Following a discussion on Facebook, I think this has been resolved. Please take a look at the results below and let us know if there are any issues.

Thanks to Dominic for letting us use their grounds, and huge thanks to those who came out to help create, mark, and then pull down the course (risking hypothermia to do so). I knew it was going to be interesting when the course designer says “yeah, it was designed for dry weather, so I’m not sure how it will go” while we sit on the starting line in the sleet…
