I know this is MTBR not CXBR but i figured that the people that have never led led me wrong before would be a good resource to go to when venturing into a "new sport". I have never raced before nor have i ever had the desire to because of lack of a competitive attitude. I have been a roadie most of my life (all 17 glorious years of it) but recently had my eyes opened to the mountain bike world. Cyclocross appeals to me because of the people and the style of racing. I feel that my personality and riding style would be well suited to CX as well. I was curious if any of you guys had any experience in cyclocross racing and could tell me anything about it... bike set up, training, favorite pre-race beverage... anything, I'm all ears.
