cx

One of the many stories about the origin of cyclo-cross is that European road racers in the early 1900s would race each other to the next town. They were allowed to cut through farmer's fields, over fences or take any other shortcuts in order to make it to the next town first. This was sometimes called a steeple chase as the only visible landmark in the next town was often the steeple. This was a way for them to stay in shape during the winter months and put a twist on road racing. As an off season training method riding off road in more difficult conditions increased the intensity and improved their on-the-road bike handling skills. "Cross" is it is oftened referred to has become wildly popular in the Southeast with a full schedule of races running from early September through January each year.
