Cyclocross bikes have a particular setup – skinny tyres with knobbly tread for grip, brakes that will work in mud and the bikes are lightweight so they can be carried.  They also have drop bars but I have no idea why!  As not everyone has a cross bike, participants will be allowed to compete on mountainbikes.

The course is in the actual Quarry.  The awesome Scott is overseeing this part of the proceeedings.  Enter here and go here for the schedule.
