cyclocross
 n.— «Forget about racing in a pack, drafting off others and saving something for the finishing sprint. Cyclocross races are over in a flash—30 to 60 minutes in duration depending on experience level—and demand that participants are at top-end speed from the opening gun.…While “cross,” as it is called among racers, doesn’t draw the masses like organized tours and charity rides, its uniqueness has helped it carve out a niche among a group of Houston racers.» —“Cyclocross action is fast and furious” by Steve Sievert Houston Chronicle (Texas) Nov. 22, 2006.
