The KMC Cross Fest kicks off today, with the women set to start racing today’s C1 race in under an hour.

American Classic teammates Robert Marion and Abe Goorskey take viewers through most of the 2016 KMC Cross Fest course at its new venue at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. It’s filled with pavement, off-cambers and short, steep climbs and drops. Have a look at what’s in store for racers this weekend in the video above.

With some wet conditions and mud out on the course, today’s racing is sure to be a challenging, technical competition.

See our interview with promoter Richard Fries to hear about the event and its move to Connecticut from Rhode Island.
