I've been bitten by the cyclocross bug. Tis the season for it and I've found myself fascinated by cyclists who ride fast for an hour straight through mud, hills and barricades. I myself have never done it, but really, really want to some day. I was stoked when I found out the 2010 Bike Expo would have a cyclocross race. This would be my first time watching a live race. I couldn't wait to see guys/gals racing through the course covered in mud! Interestingly, it was a warm, sunny, November afternoon, so it turned out to be a dry and dusty race race, rather than a muddy one. Nonetheless, I still thought it was pretty rad watching racers mount/dismount their bikes, hop over barricades and run up hill carrying their machine of choice.
