My eldest daughter takes part most weeks and enjoys it once its over... my youngest ( 6 year old ) is now taking part too but is a bit more selective in her race choice.... Has to be a flat course and dry conditions !My kids race CX and on Saturday did their 8th race of this season. 5 more to go. The kids never fail to finish a race with huge grins on their (very muddy) faces. The two downsides are 1) for we spectators who inevitably freeze while standing watching; 2) I end up washing both bikes when we get home.
Last week, a chap from our club entered his first ever race (45 minutes). He said he got home, washed his bike and then slept for 12 hours straight through
These are great!
My dad got me the chain guides made in a Lucas factory workshop. Took in a chainring to get the correct diameter and BCDThese are great!
Ahead of the curve with the 1x transmission there (and chainguides in the middle picture)
I ran 1x9 with a chainguide on the outside (and a dogfang inside) for quite a while- still do essentially since I use the 'cross bike for a bit of off-road riding and for commuting if it snows. I can't be arsed to go outside and see what cassette is on it but I know the front chainring is a 41 because when I changed the double setup I was looking through my bits box for something around the 42-44 mark and thought 'why on earth have I got a 41T chainring?'My dad got me the chain guides made in a Lucas factory workshop.

edit - 1x5 with chainguides a common set up in the 70s (I think I rode 45 x 14-28)
