The Cottonwood Classic XC is a modern XC course with a classic XCO format.

Simon Miller, owner and course creator at Cottonwood has put in a huge amount of time and effort, along with a few close friends, to create this rewarding and challenging Cross Country race trail. Known to but a few local riders and a haven for some up-and-coming young racers, the trails that make up the racecourse at Cottonwood have everything a great XC course should... not to mention a grin-factor that rivals any enduro or downhill run.

Racers are given a number of laps to complete as well as their spacing loop. The amount of laps having to be completed by each racer is determined by their age category. Every rider will ride within there age cat unless they specify that they would like to be in the fun category.
