The first few cyclocross practices of the season are always hot and folks are just getting intense laps under their belt. There are always a handful of A riders, masters, a core group of women, and some beginners. The course is run two ways. the first way includes a nice unrideable climb that requires carrying. The second way is faster and just has a few dismounts. It is about 1.5 miles long and laps usually take around 5.5 minutes.
After about 3 weeks the laps are screaming as the A's take no prisoners, the weather cools, and more folks come out. There is no race there this year but the location is still great for practice.
