So far, from what I've heard and seen, different areas of the country seem to have far different course layouts and styles... What's it like in your neck of the woods?
Minnesota cross seems to be less technical and with more big (sometimes hugs) runups. also, yesterdays race was the first of the season that actually had barriers that you had to know how to get over. all of the other ones on the season so far had been on a hill followed by a run up or on a turn, so you were always going pretty slow when you hit them. there hasn't been much pavement out here.
just curious how it plays out. the weather has been awesome. we had one really crazy muddy race, and that was a blast. It seems that the east coast has more crazy sand pit action (although we got to run a beach in Hudson).. I guess that maybe it just boils down to the course...But I seem to do best when they're fast and flat with a crazy run up....I'll try to find pictures of courses!
