Many of my friends and patients know that I’ve been training for the cyclocross season which starts now and goes through December (in the USA) and January (in Europe.) Most of them are familiar with mountain bike racing or road racing but haven’t heard of cyclocross. I usually start by smiling, because the concept is so funny. You take a modified road bike, with skinny knobby tires on it and race off-road. Oh, you also have to jump over obstacles, and run up hills. It can be quite muddy… Well, a video is worth a thousand words. Here’s a video showing some of the skills involved with this unique discipline of cycling. BTW, as you are watching, look for the tall skinny guy in a white uniform. He’s one of my heros, Ryan Trebon.
