One tenet of cyclocross course design is to use the available terrain to it’s full potential. Given that Lake Sammamish State Park is a flat venue, very flat indeed, speed is what this weekend’s course will emphasize. Oh, and the big long sand stretch. There’s that to contend with as well.
Expect a course much like the first time we visited here. Long fast stretches with high speed corners on grass. There are a few off camber bits on the beach end of the grounds, and as mentioned, we’ll be traversing the whole sand stretch without the break in the middle. Ride along the wall, or run? The choice is yours. The S/F will be the same, with a nice long paved sprint to the finish.
So bring out your inner speed devil, your tactical sense, and we’ll see some good fast racing!
See you out there,
