cyclocross

Anyone familiar with this?

Apparently, we have the largest cyclocross races in the world out here in Portland.

Belgium is the main capital for the off road cycling sport, but Portland is also a major hub for it. I went to a race today. Pretty cool stuff!

Awesome!

Yeah, it was really cool to watch :)

We have multiple vegan teams in Portland who do this, so I have some friends to watch. Great to hear that you race in the sport too.
