Sizing for a CX bike?

i was hoping to enter a couple races this fall, and have been browsing used bikes online for a couple months.

i typically ride a 57cm frame for road biking, but it seems like all i see are 56s and 58s. i was wondering if there is a rule of thumb for sizing a cx bike. like, would it be ideal to be a little on the smaller side with all of the on/off action in a race?

i'm about 6'1", so the large vs. medium sizing is a tough one too. i don't want to drive 4 hours to pick up a bike and then find out the size doesn't work. any tips?

thanks!
