CrossFix: v.: To race cyclocross on a fixed gear bike
Cyclocross: A cycling discipline involving very intense and very fast laps of a mixed terrain course. Cyclocross usually involves dismounting the bike and hurdling obstacles or running up steep sections of stairs, dirt, grass, sand, gravel and mud. It also often involves being completely covered in dirt, sand, grass, sweat and mud, and sometimes even beer and/or vomit.
Fixed Gear: The bike has only one gearing, with no freewheel. If the wheels are moving, the pedals are moving. If the pedals stop, the wheels stop.
This blog is transitioning from a place to geek out on bike stuff to a race portfolio. I'll be posting a lot more training and racing related info, along with the obligatory bike porn and events from the cycling world.
