Some obstacles at the CX race are harder to negotiate than others

Normally the hardest obstacle you'll need to navigate at the local 'cross race is a wooden hurdle or a steep grassy bank. Although, of course, the former of those has proved itself pretty tricky in the past.

Okay it's not quite in the same league as a mountain biker getting taken out by an antelope. But still worth a watch.
