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.

5 days agoby cyclocrossmindedWhen the race is done, you're support crew are there to help put you back together. @stacey .riedel rode out of her skin on Sunday to place third in the 2019 Australian CX National Championships. Exhausted, she was rightly proud of her "best race ever". We are incredibly proud to be represented by Stacey! Not only is she a great athlete, but a wonderful human ❤️
3 days agoby cyclocrossmindedThem feels when, through grit & determination you achieve 5th at the National Champs in your first race of the season. @beclocke80 hasn't had the season she would have hoped for with extensive work/professional commitments intersecting with injury. She showed her true class as the only former national champ on the start line last Sunday, to make the wide-angle podium. Welcome back Bec - we've all missed you ❤️
