Winchester Apple Cross Course Preview

Winchester Apple Cross, race #2 of the MABRAcross Super 8 Series, is this Sunday. The Winchester Wheelmen have once again put together an outstanding event, featuring a technical yet fluid course and a great atmosphere for a full day of cyclocross fun. The course preview relies on helmet-cam video from last year’s race. As has happened for every race so far, the organizers have changed things up a bit to make the experience even more awesome. If such a thing is possible.

It is great that promoters are doing this. Instead of just throwing down stakes and tape, race organizers in the Mid-Atlantic that “get cross” are learning from year to year what works and what doesn’t on their courses. Don’t take this for granted. It doesn’t happen everywhere. So if you like the course on Sunday, tell those folks in the orange and blue Winchester Wheelmen kits. And, if there is something you think can be better, let them know that as well. Just, you know, be cool about it.

Here’s a map of the course:
