A video preview of the 2009 Cyclocross Nationals course in Bend,OR done by CX Magazine.
And if the course dries out (or at least stays frozen) it looks like it could be a speed race.
One set of barriers (unless I missed one), a 15 step run up, and several quick short climbs that in a group could easily turn into run ups.
Looks to be a fun course
Unless the temps go way up and it turns in to a mud pit
Or like the 2007 KCCX Nats, frozen one day, mud and standing water the next, then a frozen rutted nightmare...
Guess we'll see
