Whenever I have to explain what cyclocross to people that don’t know what it is, I usually have a hard time. It’s the steeplechase of cycling, then you get the “what is steeplechase?” question. It’s a combination of running and cycling, then you get the “so it’s like a triathlon?” question. Nope, that’s not it either.
So if you’re in this situation like me all the time, just send them over to this video of race #3 in the Cross Crusade Cyclocross Series in Portland. This race took place at Portland International Raceway in picture perfect conditions for flying a drone, not for cyclocross! Give it a watch and this is what cyclocross is all about!
