Does anyone ride platform pedals for cyclocross. I will be entering my my first cyclocross race this season. Though, I am still having trouble clicking in and out of my atacs quickly. What are the disadvantages with platform pedals in cyclocross.

only 1 disadvantage, you'll not go as fast as everyone else. Plain and simple, flats just aren't as efficient as clip-in pedals for pedalling. Practice with the ATAC's and you'll be fine come race day.
