From Joe: the mission bay xc course is a set up like i have never seen before. The 2k loop that will be run 6 times, is in a very small area of the park. the best way to describe it is like a roller coaster. you are pretty much either turning right, left, or going up or down small hills. the start stretch runs about 350meters which is a nice however i like the flow of this technical course... the final wrap around turn on the bell lap should be crazy.
