    "Cyclocross is America's fastest growing cycle-sport, and SCOTT intends to ride that wave," said Adrian Montgomery. "It's not just the racing element that is attractive, it's also the other purposes you can use these bikes for like off-highway or "gravel" riding. Plus these events are a good time for spectators and really make for a festive environment."

    From the video, that looked like a really nicely groomed cross course. Especially liked how they turned a grassy bump into 'grass steps' but with that relatively long run veruse rise, wonder why none were riding them.

    I raced in the 35+ class and the grass step run up was much bigger and longer than it looked in the video. The steps were in the 16"/18" tall range
