Sagebrush #1 Saturday - Sacramento #1 & CCCX #2 Sunday

The Sacramento Cyclocross Series race #1 is one three feature Cross events taking place this weekend in the NCNCA region. The Sagebrush Series- presented by Reno Wheelman- will open up their racing at Dorthy Mcalinden Park in Stead Nevada on Saturday 9/26. While on Sunday- 9/27, the Sacramento Series & CCCX Series will host events. The Sacramento Series has grown over the past few years, and has slowly developed into standout races that draw large groups of Cyclocross hungry talent. Cross in the Capitol is now driven by Rich Maile, and he brings to the table a strong group of volunteers who are eager to make Sacramento a Nor-Cal player in Cyclocross racing. Personally, I have raced many times in Sac. Town, and very much enjoyed the courses and competitors. The initial masterminds of Sacramento Cross racing John & Linda Elgart paved the way for today's popularity of the Sacramento Series. Now racers from in and around the State Capitol area can partake in awesome racing on challenging courses. I do think the Series is in good hands with Rich Maile at the helm, and surely goods things will keep coming from the Sacramento Cyclocross Series. Also on Sunday is the CCCX Series race #2 in Ft. Ord, near Monterey. The Central Coast Series race #2 will be contested on a very challenging course that combines pavement, dirt, fire roads, a testing run up, and some spectacular trails that are just plain fun to ride. It looks to be a strong weekend of racing for everyone in Northern California & Nevada. Ride safe & have fun...

CX Magazine posted some great photos of Vegas Cross 2009. It was some amazing racing in both the Elite Women's & Men's divisions. Please go to CX Magazine for complete coverage....

On a more serious note- be sure and go to CX Magazine to have a look at this very good video of DFL's 15th anniversary race. Very good viewing I must admit....

Sac CX was a scorcher. The course layout made it more of a dusty drag race than a CX race, with two looooonnnnnggg straightaways...

great to get the season going!

The Sagebrush cross for Kirkwood this saturday 10 October will be epic! The mountain air, cool temperatures, cool prizes (maybe a Kona Frame too) as well as a course that runs up stairs and goes through the Kwood village will prove for a super duper race. See you there.
