What is it going to take for MTBers to come our ride/race CX? We had low attendance on the MTB and SS classes.  Even though they are loaded with great swag, real medals, beer, and naked women/men.  K not these last 2 :)

I wish I had a CX bike and I would be out there.  The closest I've come to this is a ridgid ss bike.  But two previuosly broken wrist make it hard for me to do long hours rides.  I do enjoy it though.  I bet a CX bike is as punishing on the wrists as a rigid mtb.

Racing CX is on my to do list for this year. I know there is a training race coming up here in June or July in Tampa...

I also ride my CX bike at WTA, Boyette, and Santos. Haven't had the chance to hit up Croom or Alafia, but someday!
