Bedford Mountain Cross Race #4 Falling Creek – CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

Come out to Bedford, VA for MTX racing at Falling Creek Park.

Mountain Cross!….what is it? The Mountain part refers to many of the same aspects that you might encounter in a mountain bike race.  There will be single track with rocks, roots and log overs but will only make up approximately 50% of the course. The Cross is similar to a cyclocross race mixing in grass paths, short sections of pavement or gravel road and similar lap distance.  The racers will also be required to dismount to clear barriers on the course. The race course will be 1.5-2 miles per lap and will be changed for each race. There is an Equalizer Format to score these races.  This is similar to the golf handicapping system.  In golf, players of different abilities can play fun and competitive rounds against one another. Since their handicaps equalize their scores the golfer that plays his or her best, regardless of their level of experience, can win!
