What is Micro X? Well now, I’m glad you asked. The guys over at Highroller in conjunction with De Pijp Racing set up a mini cyclocross course at Walker Park. It’s quite a spectacle. The two twenty minute races are designed for folks to build cyclocross fitness and get better at the bike skills involved in this quirky style of bicycle racing. I will be the first to admit I really stink but in the same breath it’s a lot of fun. Big time thank you to Jonathan and Jared with Highroller and De Pijp Racing for making it happen. It’s a fine although slightly painful way to spend a Thursday evening.
Where? Walker Park Fayetteville
What time? 6 PM
How long? 2 twenty minute races

Pre-race talk with Jared.
CX is becoming super popular in the US and gaining ground in the Natural State as well.
The first lap or so is an all out assault.
Dismount, run, hurdle, remount. It’s harder then you think.
The goal is to get smoother in these transitions. It’s really cool to see someone who is good at it.
Lap after lap the barriers start to take a toll.
Jake & Jonathan leading in the second race.
You don’t need a cross specific bike to participate. I started on my mountain bike last year.

Come on out!
