Racing This Weekend- Sat. Lion Of Fairfax, Sun. Central Coast Cyclocross

This weekend the Cyclocross racing in Nor-Cal is featuring two outstanding events, Saturday's Lion Of Fairfax & Sunday's Central Coast Cylcoross Series at Toro Park. Certainly the heavy rain this past Tuesday will have somewhat of an effect of the ground condition, however it has been so dry for so long that Dave Carr's mud index will not come into play just quite yet. Saturday, The Lion Of Fairfax race will be contested on the grounds of the White Hill Middle School. The course will be very challenging, and the race route has received care and maintenance from the Ross Valley School District. This Cross Classic supports the local school and brings great Cross racing to the town of Fairfax. Sunday, the Central Coast Cyclocross Series will go off at Toro Park near Salinas. Toro Park is a awesome place to ride bikes and in the past has hosted Cross races, XC races, as well as DH races. The Cyclocross course on Sunday is a treat to ride and one of its features is a smooth flowing portion of trail that is a pleasure to cycle in any situation. Two different courses will be used at Toro Park for the CCCX Series in 2009, and each course is very spectator friendly and will test Nor-Cal Cyclocross racers full on. More info. can be found on the Lion Of Fairfax event here- http://www.bigswingincycles.com/ , & The Central Coast Cyclocross Series info. can be found here- http://cccx.org/2009/index.shtml. It keeps getting better for Cross racing in Northern California, so be sure and get on out there and compete...

No. By "fun" I meant fun. If its "hellish", I will decide its hellish. I am the decider.

but yeah, its pretty hellish too. The paved climb is cool and that descent is so rad.

I've heard Fairfax is Hellish, being a big sissy, I'll opt for Toro Park.
