The BikeReg.com MABRAcross hosts its penultimate event for the 2007 season as the Series heads to the rural northern Maryland town of Sykesville for the annual running of the Race Pace Cross. With only one additional opportunity after November 11's Race Pace cross to score points in the various season championship categories, Race Pace has assumed a pivotal place on the calendar.
Located in Freedom Park, one of the largest multi-purpose parks in the area, the new and improved course retains the fast, flowing characteristics of previous years with the addition of a UCI-style pavement sprint finish and two-sided pit. According to race promoter Roger Carter, "The Freedom Park course is a combination of hard-packed grass, asphalt paths and man-made barriers. The course is very fast, like a Belgian ‘cross course, with many swooping turns and a few small run-ups and climbs."
