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.

3 days agoby cyclocrossmindedThe news that @fojcx won’t be returning to @essendonfields in 2019 has got me like.... While it’s sad to move on, it also means new opportunities for our community. What can’t be understated is the impact on our Victorian (& arguably Australian) cyclocross scene at such an important stage of its development to have had such a stable relationship with a supportive & permissive landholder. Thank you @essendonfields for all the memories. Thank you @ogaram
