How Hard Is A Pro Cyclocross Course? | Beginner Vs Infamous Zonhoven Sandpit

Cyclocross is brutal. The Belgians take it very seriously.

It's the season right now and Capital City Racing events are a blast.  It's like a party, then a CX race breaks out.  You can do a cheap 2 lap event to test things out and you can race on whatever bike.  I've seen 29+ FS to a road bike.  Just did the Battle at the Brewery (Jester King) Cat4-5 on Saturday.  I wasn't feeling 100% for it but I still had fun, and some good beer after (and a bourbon handup during the race).  Easiest course without a steep climb or a sand trap but even then those barriers always spike my HR.  It's the hardest 30 minutes of riding (or 50 for other categories) you're ever going to do.
