While appreciating that your source is the Washington Post, I should point out that the Capitol 'Cross Classic, as the title implies, is NOT a mountain bike race but a cyclocross race. Often, mountain bikes are allowed in some categories of these events, but a cyclocross bike is what's supposed to be ridden for a cyclo-cross race.

I had the pleasure of racing at the Capitol Cross Classic

chris is right...
it is a cyclocross event
not a mountain bike event

mountain bikes are allowed with bar ends
but the racer would be disadvantaged with the shorter wheels and wider tires

the day was an amazing day for racing
for both spectators and participants

the course was challenging

the competition was intense

I was humbled
