Iron Cross - Yes Please
Came across this article today over at DirtRag, and it looks like it might just be one of the greatest cyclocross races ever. The idea of the race goes against the conventional thought of what a cyclocross race should be, but who the hell cares. Cyclocross lasting for more than three hours and including thousands of feet of climbing, why the hell not, dumber things have happened. And for you folks who came on over for Rolling Thunder and enjoyed the spiral of death, it looks like the Iron Cross race has that, but on steroids. Maybe we can get this going on here in Missoula, make it include Deer Creek Rd, a trip up Mt. Deanstone, throw in some of the Old Marshall Grade? Like I said before, dumber things have happened.
