Cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing that include trails over grass fields, wooded areas, water and step barriers and a lot of mud. A mix of road racing and mountain biking with a lot of mud. Races generally last 45-60 minutes rain or shine...or in today's case, driving showers, creating a lot of mud.

That is a fantastic action shot! Cycling in the rain isn't very appealing to me :D

It is the kind of cycling my sister used to do fifty or sixty years ago. Not the kind of thing I'd ever have done though.
