Fast is the only way to describe that course. Just look at the results: a whopping 59 riders stayed on the lead lap! Only 1 minute separated 22 year old Champion Lars Boom and 25th place. As a comparison, last week at the World Cup in Hoogerheide, Netherlands, 6 minutes separated 1st and 25th place.
I'm not sure if I like the fast course. I think it eliminates alot of the tech aspects of cross.
