I'm doing the 50K classic at Craftsbury then some downhill with the family at Jay, it's our first out of town ski vacation, which is only slightly less expensive than a lung transplant or trip to Disney

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

I often use a cross bike on rougher courses, usually the limiting factor is keeping the tires from popping. I have tried various fat cross tires for the weds night race but I have to go real slow on the downhills to avoid a flat, and even so I get flats all the time so it's less fun.

If a course has only a short section where the cross bike will be at a disadvantage and the rest is open enough to let it run, it might be the way to go.

Sorry to miss this race but I'm off to ski race in VT for the weekend with my family

I wouldn't recommend a CX bike, you're still going down the sledding hill and through a pretty rooted section. And from the looks of the weather forecast, it should be cold enough to run on the frozen single track. Anyways, you wouldn't bring a knife to a gunfight would you?

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
