    I will be there!

    I am signed up to race, but it has yet to be determined if that will actually happen (long story). Either way, I will be there and be cheering you guys on!

    For those that are cross curious, Hyattsville is a GREAT beginner race. The course is pretty non-technical and relatively flat with one climby single track section in the back. Plus, for those without cars, it is metro accessible! Sign up, race, and have fun.

    I know that UCI requires tyres to be 33c or less for CX races........ I'm interested in doing DCCX as a beginner (never done a CX race before) on my Jamis Renegade and likely need different tyres than my Schwalbe Marathon Almotions. Will I need a 33c tyre, or do you know if a fatter tyre would be accepted in the Men's Cat 4/5 category?

    UCI rules only apply to UCI races. At DCCX, only certain races are UCI races. Others just fall under USA Cycling. The races at DCCX that are UCI are marked as UCI - they are the elite races.

    You are good to go.

    I have been riding CX 40 clements that I love. Those are my go-to wheels. It just depends on the conditions. Not expecting so much mud, I rode them this weekend at Hyattsville. They were rubbish. But you know at least I got to fall in the mud. Its good to be able to run soft and to have something that will grip. DCCX has some fun off-camber. Then again, last year it was dry and hard - and half the race pinch-flatted.

    I am racing in the Cat 2/3 race and will be running 38's. Since it is not a UCI race, run what ya brung!

    Reason 2) is still a problem.

    Reason 2 will be all the more amusing for the rest of us!
