explaining cyclocross

When I have to explain cyclocross, which includes fall semester classes (how will I report the results of major races if the students don't know what cx is?), I usually use this great video.

However, today I found this one, which I also love.

All my years in cycling and I still really had no idea what to expect until I showed up to my first race. And I only lost that race by two places. (I've since learned to lose them by many more.) But cross really is that great. At least for this shaggy dirtbagging goat.

Getting excited...

Plus cross is WAY more fun for the family: we can actually watch!

(and cheer and run around the course seeing daddy at different spots and plus lots of them have kid races, too).

We're fans.
