Entire Bedford MTX Series
Mountain Cross, or MTX!….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 stumps but it will only make up roughly 50% of the course. The other 50% of the course will consist of mixed surfaces such as grass paths, gravel or pavement, and double track dirt roads. The “cross” parts refers to the multiple styles of racing and mixed terrain the race combines being a combination of moutain biking and cyclocross. There are mandatory barriers that must be dismounted for, a staggered start, and the equalizer format. When combined these different riding styles and elements make what we call Mountain Cross. The races are short, intense, and loads of fun! These are great training races if you have your eye on some other races coming in the Spring/Summer.
Series winners will be the racers completing the most laps combined from all the races. In the event of a tie the racer with the most laps in the least amount of time wins. (Ex. 20 laps in 1:55:05 beats 20 laps in 1:59:00)
