cyclocross

Today we watched our first ever cyclocross race. Here are a few snaps of the fun:

The start

Into a headwind on the back stretch

Up and down, over the road

The stairs

Again, headwind on the back stretch

Over the barriers

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.
