If you save some energy, the Wigwam hike isn't so bad.
is rewarded with blazing descents, usually on perfectly groomed fireroads. But there is a tricky yet ridable singletrack downhill early on called Lippencote Trail complete with rocks, roots and logs that can unsettle the pace or ruin your day if you not careful. For the uninitiated, the first 30 miles go blindingly fast, but don get caught up in the ease of clicking off miles. Once you hit the fabled WigWam hike a bike things slow down considerably, especially if you crack stomping over this monster of a bump located just before the second aid station. Thankfully the next 10 miles go relatively quick, but then the climbs get much steeper as you hit Hogshead, a stepping stone of climbing brutality that lasts for days it seems. That little slice of Hades leads to a ripper of a final descent down a perfect dirt road and into the final upwards hike of the day at about mile 55 before a rolling 3 miles of pavement back to the finish. All this wouldn be complete without a total of four aid stations along the way and a traditional Pabst Blue Nike Black Pullover Hoodie Ribbon filling station at the top of the final hike a bike dubbed Larry Tavern.
At 62 miles with nearly 7,000 feet of climbing, Iron Cross is North America only major event styled after the infamous Three Peaks in Yorkshire Dales, England where hearty souls have been racing 38 rugged miles and climbing 5,000 feet since 1962. What makes Iron Cross unique is its inclusion of real, shred the gnar east coast singletrack among the scenic fireroads and pavement. The race starts with one lap of the Spiral, a twisty turn of a Nike Black Pullover

This spurred a wave of online hate mail against him and the race. Eventually he retracted the namecalling and heckling in another post but continued with the anti mountain bike theme at Iron Cross, though you can still legally ride one.

No matter what your cycling specialty, Iron Cross is the perfect season cap. Now that the 2010 event is in the books, plans for the 2011 edition are already in the works. Look for a new 32 mile Iron Cross Lite to run alongside the full length race for those who just want just a taste of the adventure as well as a Bus that will shuttle fans and family around the course, presumably hitting the start, Lippencott and Wigwam Run Up before heading back to the finish line. The promoters say the idea has the support of the visitor bureau and the several local businesses.

What makes Iron Cross attractive amid the frenzy of endurance racing and 40 to 60 minute cyclocross events is its all inclusive attitude (despite what Kuhn and company say in jest) and the fact that it lends itself to being as much an adventure as a race. Unlike 100 mile mountain bike events that, besides being daunting in nature, require a certain degree of sophisticated equipment, Iron Cross is doable on a sub $1,000 cyclocross bike with one water bottle thanks to the aid stations every 12 to 15 miles. Add in the fact that while it does have many of its own challenges, much of it consists of pack riding, drafting and an opportunity to socialize with fellow racers on course.
