Cyclocross is like trail riding right?

I was looking for a place to share this video and noticed there is no CX forum on the site. Is there any interest or is this lame? Seriously, let me know where you think this fits AND if the video is any good at all.

I thought The editing was good, it made it more interesting. I might have posted it under professional cycling since it is a race, even though it may not be a race in the traditional sense. Regardless of where you posted it I thought it was worth a view!

CX is lame in my opinion.

Was REALLY funny how two of the guys you were competing with were named Ian and Blaine... I mean really? Hahaha I got a big kick out of that.

Because that's my opinion of the "sport" it's something for the roadies to do "offroad" without actually hitting a trail... I get the uppity, self-importance vibe from people that CX..... yuppy sport.

I know, my opinion would probably change if I tried it.. it does look fun, but that's just the impression I get

and you've already posted this video elsewhere.. yes it's great, you're awesome, thanks for sharing

Hey there TheDomestique!

That's a really great video! Loved that jazzy music too!

IMHO, Cyclocross shares much in common with XC MTN biking. It reallys looks like XC MTN biking married with road bike racing, except you get to dismount for a little extra added physical taxation.

Yeah, I would agree. I quess CX needs a forum all its own...

Thanks
