Cross de Capital - cyclocross - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 4 August 2015 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

The finish line in his sight! I am at the Cross de Capital cyclocross event. Contestants ride (and sometimes carry) their bikes along trails, up steps, around muddy corners and over embankments.

The entire race took place within the boundaries of a suburban park. The Cross de Capital made up Rounds Five and Six of the National Cyclocross Series.

The off-road racing of cyclocross is a big sport in Europe and is quickly becoming more popular in Australia. The bikes they ride are modified road bikes and at elite level do not have the advantage of the wider tyres of mountain bikes.
