Had a great day yesterday doing a Reconnaissance on the Lysterfield Cyclocross course with one of our team riders Kristjan “Snozza” Snorrason. This course has got it all – stairs, speed, grassy bogs, technical sections, water crossings and a bmx jump. Can’t wait to get into it.
Check out the course on this video we shot.
Here is all the key information from the www.fullgaspromotions.com.au
Think of a party in the park and a bike race broke out!
For those that are riding, 80% of the course will be ridable, with the rest consisting of natural obstacles like creeks and fallen trees combined with man-made barriers like flights of stairs and low fences.
Mud, don’t forget the mud! Riding through a section of mud is not something to be frowned upon, in fact it’s a crowd favorite. This is Cyclocross.
This is the Specialized Cross Melburn Series.
