Process of elimination:

1. Should one race on a hybrid? - No, these bikes are generally designed for recreational use.

2. Should one race on a mountain bike? - No, you'll be slowed by the big fat tire.

3. Should one race on a road bike? - No, 20 km of your race is off road and you don't want to risk an equipment failure or crash.

What's left? A cyclocross bike. With the proper tires, this sort of bike would suit your need perfectly. Think of it as a road bike that has been redesigned such that it is more than capable of going off road.
