Cyclocross is the sport of racing bicycles on a set single-track course that usually has a mix of pavement, mud, sand, dirt, grass and obstacles that require most riders to dismount and carry their bikes. The person who does the most laps in the fastest amount of time is the winner. 

The Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization that creates opportunities through competitive snow sports programs to support athletes in achieving their individual athletic, academic and personal goals.
