Anybody know where we could put on a new cross race. Chatfield has been done to death. The CO state championship course from last year is the type of course we're looking but we want something more urban. Something to bring the true party nature of cross racing to the states.

I cross posted this on the cross discussion site.

CX Nats last year was in a big urban park in Baltimore, something similar to Wash Park or maybe Cheeseman. I doubt the city would allow a bike race to happen in a Denver park due to the grass situation.

There's a bunch of city-run soccer/baseball parks in the metro area that are large and the city may be more lenient about letting a bike race happen. I've only been to one in Lakewood near Arvada but from what I remember it had some hills that could be used for run-ups.
