Cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing.   Races typically take place in the autumn and winter (the international or “World Cup” season is October–February), and consist of many laps of a short (2.5–3.5  km or 1.5–2  mile) course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount The sport is strongest in the traditional road cycling countries such as Belgium, France and the Netherlands. 

If you have thought about trying out cyclocross, but have never done it, the Thrilla is perfect.
