Being able to dismount, negotiate an obstacle, and then quickly remount is a critical skill and an important part of our practice sessions:

And, of course, cyclocross is known for its fun and friendly atmosphere. No gathering of ’cross racers would be complete without some time for conversation about racing plans and equipment choices:

We’ll be back at Royal Oaks again next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. for Round Two. Feel free to join us. If you don’t want to ride, consider showing up just to heckle. Good-natured teasing of the racers is a cherished part of the atmosphere at any cyclocross event and not something we can easily simulate by ourselves!
