What: STXCCX. A short track-style race geared towards cross bikes. What that means, only Stark Industries really knows. It will likely be shorter than a traditional cross course with no barriers and at least one hill. The emphasis will be on speed. There will an A and B groups (if there is enough people). The A group will race for 60 minutes and the B group for 45 minutes. Race whatever group you want, on whatever bike you want, nobody is going to ask or care. Awards will be given to the winners of both groups. Expects some premes and some hanging out afterwards.
