IRON CROSS XI 2013. One of my favorite events of the year! Next to the Trans-Sylvania Epic, this is probably one of the most challenging (but do-able!) events on a bicycle that you can participate in. While most cyclocross races have you on a little track at a local park, this sends you up and down some big climbs through Michaux State Forest, walking up a big powerline trail, over hill and dale, and screaming down back roads – for 68ish miles. It’s a heck of a great time and draws some big and diverse crowds across the bike racing scene.
