Cross Country (XC) racing is a challenging and fun format that requires mental fortitude, technical riding prowess and fitness! XC is a set number of laps of a course, which can include roads, trails, gravel, uphill, downhill and more! The first person to finish the required number of laps wins!
A mass start sees everyone set off at the same time, fighting to get prime position for the grueling effort to come. Strategy is king in this kind of race!
