|About the Old Fashioned CX Series.
long time ago, before gravel bikes or mountain bikes, when the weather
got chilly, bike racers would ride whatever bike they had through the
woods, across the fields and down little dirt lanes. Sometimes
would be steep hills or fallen logs where they would have to get off
their bikes and carry them. And, since they were bike racers, they
started setting up little loops and racing around them. It was fun.
This was the beginning of cyclocross.
I feel that the UCI with all their rules (even if they be well meaning)
have kind of lost contact with this aesthetic. This series attempts to
preserve this "old fashioned" cyclocross aesthetic of just riding
through whatever happens to be out there.
So what should I expect to be different VS a normal modern
I will try to design courses that favor cyclocross bikes over mountain
bikes or road bikes. Considerable sections of the courses will be
less than 3m wide, hurdles will more likely be a just a few logs
thrown across the trail, and there will probably be more running with
the bike than most CX races. You can ride any type of bike or tires you
think best for the course. This year all the races will have one
combined start and race for about 1hr, this is also kind of old school
None of the races are USAC so you do not need a license, but there are
no official USAC upgrade or ranking points earned.
Be sure you have fresh sealant, for Hubble especially. It has been a
I hope you can make it out, and that you think it's fun.
Note if it is really snowy
up there, we will move the race to the Hubbell course.
Bikes: You can
ride any bike and any tire width you wish, as long as the only motor is
Course: 4 mi loop
with some double track, some
singletrack, with about
1/2 mile of pavement. We will do 3 laps. Trails are pretty smooth and
fast: fun stuff to ride on a CX bike. Faster riders will finish in
about 50-60 minutes. There will be several runups per lap. There is
some bumpy stuff so 35-45 mm tires would be good.
