What is short track MTB racing?

Short track MTB racing takes place on a ~3/4 mile trail and is a cross between a criterium, cyclo-cross and single-track off-road racing.  Racers do multiple laps on the short 3-5 minute course, with races running in length between 5 minutes for kids up to 30+ minutes for the Advanced category. The short track MTB course is designed to be fast, fun and very spectator friendly.
