I was just watching the juniors and the u23s race at Gieten and I was wondering what the junior gear restrictions are for cross. I understand the reason for them on the road, and thinking about it, I would posit that the restriction should be greater in cross. You wouldn't want them really torquing that gear through the mud and sand - that would kill their knees and joints like nothing on the road would.

So my suspicion is that they would/should be limited to a lower gear limit than on the road. Am I right?

Thanks,
Geoff

at least at the 2005 worlds in germany there were restrictions for juniors. the swiss mecanics had to ban some rear derailleurs(e.g. the 11 and 12 cog wasn't rideable anymore).
