What is cyclocross racing?

Cyclocross is best described as an off-road bike race mixed with steeplechase. Riders race laps around a short course (2.5 to 3.5km / 1.5 to 2 miles) that usually features some pavement, some dirt, some woods, some steep hills and for good measure, some obstacles thrown in that require riders to dismount, work their way through and then get back on and ride some more. Races last about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the classification of the rider.

Cyclocross races are held in the fall and winter and have been huge in Europe going back at least fifty years, though interest in the U.S. has picked up at a rapid rate in recent years (the fastest growing sport in U.S. cycling). If you’re interested in witnessing one of the most exciting cycle sports or looking for a new way to keep in shape, check out the 20123 Full Moon Vista Ellison Park Cyclocross race as a spectator or a participant!
