The 10th edition of Donkey cross will feature a new course layout!
The big change is the elimination of the long out-and-back, along the orchard fence, in favor of more technical riding in the orchard near the traditional start location. The start will remain the same as last year, but the course will now loop back and through the start, once per lap.
The Pit will be significantly better, located in the orchard, instead of in the woods. It will be a traditional 2-sided pit. Half the course is in the orchard, half in the woods. Up by the barn, the course will be identical to last year, including the same CX barriers, and log stairs. The sand pit approach is in the opposite direction to past years.
These changes are being made to give the riders more of a traditional CX course feel, and put the riders in view of the spectators for more of the race.
