Cross Palace 11-6-10

Picking my bike up after rolling my tire

The concept of a cross race at the Cow Palace is awesome, but the potential has yet to be realized. The most recent attempt was pretty disappointing. For starters, it was $40 to race plus you had to pay $12 to get in since there was a swap and expo going on. Then there was the course. Really?

I raced in Salem last season before the SSCXWC race in Portland and got a sample of how awesome a partially indoor course could be. The flat fairgrounds went in and out of a barn twisting through wood chips with a country band playing and then later entered an arena to circle its bmx track.

The Cross Place was a mostly road course that lacked inspiration. I wonder what happened. There was the steep decent and banked right and a few other features, but it seemed like it was half a course with road to fill in.
