    Question about the Iron Cross race

    I have had the Iron Cross race on my radar for a while now but all I have a (slightly heavy) Duel Suspension 29'r, I am wondering if anyone out there has done the race and how you think doing it on a bike like that would be?

    I've only raced it once. Like the name implies it's more of an endurance CX event than a mountain bike race.

    There's some singletrack, but you'll spend most of the day on gravel roads. A cyclocross bike with higher volume tires is probably the optimal machine, but you can enjoy the ride on any bike.
