Not necessarily. Road bike brakes aren't that strong and the very narrow tyres haven't a lot of stopping power. Cyclocross bikes have somewhat wider tyres, but they often use cantilever brakes which suck donkey balls when it comes to stopping power even compared to v-brakes - basically the lowest brake version for cheap city bikes. Better ones use hydraulic disc brakes - which are allowed on cyclocross nowadays but not many riders use them yet.
