Cyclocross Minded’s fundamental idea is that cyclocross is awesome, it’s a hard sport but rewards the effort put it. Most of the time.
Cyclocross is fun, community focused- at it’s heart it is about riding bikes with mates and making new ones.
Cyclocross in Australia is only young and has so much potential, The sport’s development in the coming years is going to be exciting.
We are incredibly fortunate to support and work with the amazing people and athletes below to spread the cyclocross message and to shout to the world that Australian cyclocrossers are coming.
They are all Cyclocross Minded.

We have an amazingly special community & it was an absolute privilege to spend the weekend at such a beautiful venue, with awesome people & watch some great racing. Thanks @teammtbeauty@cyclingvictoria and all the volunteers for a great weekend!
