So what is cyclocross? Cyclocross is a type of race where riders race around a circuit that consists of sealed roads, off road tracks and obstacles. The catch is that riders are required to dismount and carry their bike over shoulder to navigate obstacles. Cyclocross races are generally conducted in the winter months and vary in length depending on the difficulty of the terrain. Cyclocross’s origins can be traced back to the early 1900’s specifically in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
