What is Cyclocross?

I am the (self proclaimed) ambassador of cyclocross.  I espouse the beauty of the sport to anyone who will listen.  Sometimes it's during a group ride, sometimes while in line at the grocery store and often while chatting in the halls at work.  Cyclocross is taste-blood-in-your-breath-hard.  Cyclocross is addictive. Cyclcoross is dirty.  Most of all, cyclocross is fun. These short vids help explain the sport better than I can.

My favorite race and favorite footage.  There's even a shot of (non)team rider Colin in there.

This captures the beauty and sounds of  race.
