What is cyclocross?
Cyclocross, or CX as it is more commonly known, is currently enjoying a surge in popularity throughout the UK. Many liken CX to triathlons - without the swimming - as it involves bike riding as well as running and even a bit of jumping, climbing and slipping in between.
CX is a hugely technical sport, which requires aerobic endurance, bike handling skills, high end power and strength. On some occasions you will be required to jump off and physically lift your bike over certain obstacles or down slippery, muddy descents. Of course, you can choose to stay on the saddle, but it’s at your risk, a gamble that makes the sport so much fun.
Anyone can give CX a go and most events cater for all abilities. The season starts in September but that’s not to say that you can’t head out for a ride through the woodland and bridleways anytime.
