What is cyclocross?

We here at Supercross Cup get that a lot. 

It's done on what looks like a road bike with knobby tires.  It's a bicycle race, but there's running.  People are wearing skinsuits but they're going slowly.  It hurts, but it's awesome.  Confused yet?

IT HURTS, BUT IT’S AWESOME.

You should come out to see it firsthand at Supercross Cup 2016 or at any of the Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross Series races!

But before you make it out, here are some videos from Cyclocross Magazine and Global Cycling Network to give you some greater understanding of what cross is about:
