I'm organizing a couple of cyclocross races in Miami (see Tropicalcyclocross.com) and I want to know if anyone has experience with a scaffold stair run-up with a bridge over the course and a ramp down?
I'm looking for schematics, drawings or pictures.
Basically, I am looking for any information that will help me figure out if this is a viable idea for our event.
This was from a race in Michigan last season. It was really steep to get up, but worth it with the gradual down. Check out more photos on my flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/thefactoryrider/sets/72157622302805421/
We are looking into building/having one of these at our races this year.
We need some more guidelines to get a better estimate, so I have a couple of questions:
How wide are they normally?
How high is the ceiling of the underpass?
We are planning for 8-10" stairs, does that sound about right? Most likely at about a 60deg angle.
The down ramp is going to be about 30-40deg.
Does this sound about right?
