The cold front brings cold, rain, and the temptation to pick up that book or remote. All you want to do is grab a warm blanket, sit on the couch and stop working out.

Always looking for a challenge? Okay with getting dirty? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, cyclocross may just be the sport for you.
