Get Ready for Extreme Bicycle Racing in Dunedin
The Fourth Annual Edinburgh Cyclocross Challenge is this coming weekend (Sept. 24-25).
DUNEDIN – Registration is still open for the Fourth Annual Edinburgh Cyclocross Challenge.
The event, sponsored by the Roman and Gaynor law firm, will take place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 24) and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 25) at Highlander Park, 903 Michigan Blvd. in Dunedin.
Cyclocross Magazine explains: “Cyclocross is a very specific type of bike racing. For the most part, the course is off-road but there are sometimes portions of pavement included in the course. You can expect to encounter grass, dirt, mud, gravel, sand, and a whole slew of other assortments and combinations. … Courses typically, but not always include barriers, as well as other ‘features’ that will necessitate hoping both off, and back onto, your bike. … Often there are hills, sand pits and muddy sections that are too difficult or slow to ride, and thus a racer will shoulder their bike and run with it. Running has become a smaller part of the racing over the last decade, but especially in the Pacific Northwest, you’ll find mud so thick it’s often faster to run.”
