And if you're curious, OVERSTEEK means this is a place you can cross the course. A marshall will lower the tape and turn you loose, very frequently with a reckless disregard of how close oncoming racers (at least those not named Nys, Vervecken, or Wellens) are to colliding with you. Nothing like playing Frogger with 'cross pros, a potentially calamitous prospect made even more unpredictable by the blood alcohol content of the spectator vs. the cyclist's lack of mental acuity fueled by extreme physical exertion.
