I was a mediocre boardercross racer with a very short racing career. You need very good balance and very strong/flexible leg muscles.

You need to have shock absorber legs in the the rhythm/roller/bumps sections otherwise they wil eject you out of the race.

You also need to be able to handle doing funky lines (paths) through the course because someone is blocking/pushing you OR you are blocking someone else who is trying to pass you from behind.

Here's a video on how 5-time X Games Boardercross Gold Medalist Nate Holland trains.
