[Event] Mad Cow Cyclocross Series #3 (Night Race)


Recommended Posts

Event Name: Mad Cow Cyclocross Series #3 (Night Race)
When: 20 April 2019
Where: Cowhouse Market, Hazeldean, Gauteng
Category: Cyclocross

Cyclocross: the exhilarating and aerobic sport of racing a bicycle over hill and dale mixing tarmac, gravel, mud, run-ups and obstacles designed to dismount the riders and go it on foot.

Like a mixture of steeple chase and criterium races for road bikes, Cyclocross races repeat a course over a fixed time, with the strongest and fastest riders winning.

For the racers it’s all about skill and high intensity bike racing. For the spectators it’s all about the festival atmosphere, good food and drink and drama of the event.

Are your races CSA sanctioned or is it like the MTB race that you held that was unsanctioned and CSA members run the risk of getting fined like they do in the Cape at the moment?May

Maybe it's time to enter under another name....false ID number, etc.  Who will know, who will care...
