thing about Cross Races is you have to learn how to get off the bike, jump barriers placed on the course,
then jump back on, and keep the momentum up as you do.
Course designs vary, of course, there should be some sections .. faster to run up, carrying the Bike,
than granny gear your way up, in the saddle.
often races are set up in City parks , many tight corners to create a maze effect,
for riding the lap, distance, within a small area.
Portland folks used the County fairgrounds a few years ago, out here..
their Halloween Weekend races moved to Bend, since then.
