<style type="text/css"><!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--></style>Road cycling is too boring for me already and I need more challenges. Recently in the Internet I found a sport discipline called Cyclo-cross, which sounds very interesting to me, but for this discipline I need people to ride with, trainer or at least training spot. After the long searching in search engine I find this website: https://zoptamo.com . Do you think that this is reliable site? Can you help me?

I recommend starting with the Cyclocross thread here.

Cyclocross

There are lots of experienced cx racers that frequent that thread and they should be able to point you in the right direction. I also recommend checking out cyclocross specific websites like CX Magazine. They have lots of tips about training, nutrition, etc. in their training and skills tab. See below:

How To Train For Cyclocross ? ?Cross Continuing Education - Cyclocross Magazine - Cyclocross News, Races, Bikes, Photos, Videos

Global Cycling Network also has a number of cyclocross specific training videos out there as well. But, if you are serious about becoming a cyclocross racer (or any other type of racer), the best thing you can do is get out there, ride with, and learn from experienced racers.

What Rashadabd said.

I think you should START with learning how to dismount/remount. That is the prime CX specific skill that road riding and mtb does not give you.
