Anyone out there doing Cyclocross? Getting popular in my area, wife did a 30 minute race last Sunday, first time, I watched Bad thing is, she had to use her 10 year old, 45lb. MTB, kinda hard picking it up and running, jumping over stumps and stuff Dedicated Cyclo bike is kinda limited though? Some said to just get a 29r and put smaller tires when Cylclocrossing.

it looks like fun and I dig steel framed cyclocross bikes, but it's just too much work

not sure if this has been posted previously, but here are the 6 main cuts from the Anthill film Strength In Numbers.

Each cut shows a different vein of mountain biking and all are great takes on the scene.
