Schooley Mill Cross, day one of the Howard County Double Cross, took place November 20. The course set up dry and fast with a couple more twists and turns than last year. The mud wasn’t there this year, which made this race a bit faster, but the added technical features seemed to keep everything in […]

The MABRAcross Championship race, also know as The Turkey Chase, is historically a sloppy affair with muddy conditions being the rule rather than the exception.

I have a whole lot of Howard County Double Cross content to upload. So much, that I’m not sure where to start. Spent today moving along some MABRAcross business and now it’s all CXHairs for the next day or so. We did some cool interviews at Schooley Mill, helmet-cams for Rockburn and Schooley Mill and […]
