WHY: Cyclocross -- which is a fusion of road bike riding, mountain biking, bike handling, running and steeplechase -- is one of the fastest-growing cycling disciplines in the United States, probably because it's so fun for both participants and spectators. Check out this article in the August/September issue of Ohio Sports & Fitness for more about the CX phenomenon.
