I recently bought a used 2001 Specialized Sirrus Pro. Basically their Hybrid bike and am wondering if it will be strong enough for a first time CX race? I'm just wanting to try out cyclocross.
Aluminum frame and fork with road/touring type geometry, 700c x 30 Ritchey cross comp tires on heavy but sturdy wheels, 36 hole Bontrager Fairlanes.straight handlebar, cantilever brakes, MTB drivetrain (Deore and Deore XT) Triple in front (ughh). Time ATAC pedals.
It should work fineWheelz

Make sure you drop any water bottle cages and if you have flat bars, make sure you take any bar ends off.
