Cyclocross, described by enthusiasts as “the toughest hour in cycling,” is an on-road and off-road cycling discipline held on a one- to two-mile looped circuit. Cyclocross racers navigate mud, sand, pavement, grass, gravel, pasture and mulch. When the terrain is too steep to ride, riders dismount, shoulder their bikes and run.Print This Post
