CYCLO-CROSS (CX) 2016
Caribbean Park is very proud to host the Victorian Cyclo-Cross on Sunday July 17 2016. Cyclo-cross, sometimes also referred to as CX, is a race held over a variety of terrain. The course is usually a short loop that features some paved sections, some grass sections, some dirt sections, and usually some very popular mud sections. Riders are also forced to dismount and remount their bikes at times, through use of barriers, steps or ‘run-ups’ (sections that are impossible to ride). Basically, it’s an obstacle course that you ride around. Races are generally held in the winter, as the emphasis is on racing in terrible conditions. It’s all about the mud, and you can’t have mud without a bit of rain!
