1. Can you race a fixed gear in cyclocross in a offical race --USCF race
2. Is a brake required by USCF?
I know rule vary by event. I can Time trial my fixed gear legally, but I cannot race it in a crit. I can road race in unofficial races only on a fixed gear.

not sure about uscf, but there's a guy who's been killing it in the socal cross races on a fixed gear. he won the men's elite last race. freakin' impressive.
Pretty sure you can run fixed at most races. I recently rode my pista using a
freewheel & no one noticed (or cared) that I was only running a front brake.
Later I crashed and had to disengage my brake so I finished the race riding
a brakeless singlespeed (!)
I was told that bullhorns are not allowed as they are considered similar to
bar ends which apparently pose a safety risk.
