Sitting slip

think somewhere on Hub is a discussion on this, but don't know if it was wiped out with the "Great Crash". Maybe do a search

Times are tough and finances are tight.Running a CX bike is expensive when you ride in the mud.

I am pretty sure that a well organized race will do well and the guys can start on a mtb.


All you need is a +_5km track a few obstacles and load of Schnapps :thumbup:

I would definately race. But won't buy a CX bike until there's more races here. So, don't think I'll be buying a CX bike anytime soon...

I really don't understand why this is so difficult to set up here:

  • low barrier to entry - at grassroots you can ride any bike you want (that's how they grew this sport in the States)
  • 1 hour of fun
  • small area required
  • anyone can race - kids to seniors
  • cowbells
  • beer
  • Belgian waffles
  • Belgian frites


what's not to like?

In pretoria rosemary hill will work. Midrand big red bard.....really think we should start this in our country. Just another form of cycling to get the youth going and keep them interested.
