Cool short-course CX race video. We need more races like these.

That's a really interesting format! It would be interesting to try a race like that. I'm not sure, though, that the format is well-served by such a tight, slow course. Looks like very few opportunities for passing. But then that's my bias on courses in general, I don't love how super-windy courses race very much in normal races either.

It's true that passing was difficult. I missed a 4th place finish because passing safely was tough, although if I hadn't slipped on the bridge, I wouldn't have lost that place to begin with. An extra lap would have made all the difference as well.
This was Boise Velo Women's first time putting on a race of ANY kind! I thought they did an outstanding job, and even during the event they were planning on ways to improve it for next year.
Great video, Chris. It's so good to have you back from your injuries!

I like it, except it does look too tight to allow enough passing. But, cool.

It's got all the ingredients of a good cross course but it's too short imo. But then again sometimes you just have to make due with the space that you have too.
