Big Weekend Of Racing Ahead- CXSR, LARPD, Sagebrush on Saturday.- CCCX Toro Park on Sunday

The racing action really heats up this weekend in Northern California with multiple events on tap for Cyclocross enthusiasts. The Santa Rosa Cyclocross Series opens up their season of racing at the Youth Community Park course. Cyclocross in Santa Rosa has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. It is great to see the City of Santa Rosa backing these Cross races from Carlos Perez & Bike Monkey. Santa Rosa is setting a standard for other area's in Nor-Cal to use local parks for Cyclocross racing. Other venues for CXSR will be Franklin Park, Dan Galvin Park, & Doyle Park. Also on Saturday, Shane Huntoon is sure to have a terrific lay out planned for his LARPD course in Livermore. Huntoon has worked hard to put together awesome courses that are well marked and challenging. Livermore is a hot bed for Cross, and Shane & Karen Huntoon are the driving forces that provide the great races during the season. Shane mentioned he has a few surprises up his sleeve for this Saturday's LARPD race, so I am sure it will be great racing for everyone. Saturday in Reno, Nevada, is the Sagebrush Series race #3. This race will be contested at one of my favorite venues Hidden Valley Park. This park has hosted many Cross races over the years and it is always a pleasure to race there. The Nor-Cal racing action then continues on Sunday at Toro Park near Salinas where CCCX #4 will take place. The Central Coast Cross race at Toro Park is sure to be a instant classic, as a new course is being used that will go down in history as one of the best routes ever for that series. The front area of Toro Park will be turning from a no bicycle zone into a Cyclocross bicycle haven where the racing action will surely shock and awe other park users who are not used to giving up this prime real estate to cyclists. Conditions at Toro Park are perfect for cycling and the race route will be stellar for racers as well as spectators. Please go here for information for the CXSR events- Here for the LARDP events- Here for the Sagebrush Series events- and Here for the CCCX Series races- I do recommend you get out and race this weekend. One thing you can count on is all of the regions promoters who are hosting events this weekend doing their best to provide a opportunity to compete...
