Surf City Series & Sacramento Series On Tap Sunday

The Surf City Series will host their 4th race at Harbor High School in Santa Cruz this Sunday. Mike Evans, Jeff Clark, and crew are sure to produce an outstanding course at Harbor High. Having tested this venue last season, I can personally say that Harbor High is one of the better facilities for fun racing and includes all aspects that lead to a awesome race route. Team Santa Cruz will always add their special touches that make racing Cyclocorss at the Surf City Series so great. If you are near Santa Cruz this weekend be sure and make the trip to race the Surf City Series. The people who put on the race are awesome and Harbor High School is a super fun place to race. Sacramento's event on Sunday will be at Lange Twins Winery near Lodi. This event is sure to be a classic. I have witnessed first hand the growth of Cross racing in and around the State Capitol. The course designs just keep getting better, and the level of thought put into the race routes has been raised considerably over the past few years. This is evident from the outstanding results some of their best riders just produced at the U.S. Cyclocorss Nationals. Elgart, Maile, Maile, Kaiser, Ferguson, all made podium appearances in Bend Oregon. The report I recieved about this course at Lange Twins Winery is that it is sure to be a challenging route with pleasing turns and testy sections to highlight this solid venue. Another special touch the Lange Twins Winery venue will provide is Wine tasting on site. The only thing that beats Wine tasting at Cross events in Nor-Cal is Beer tasting. And I am sure there will be plenty of both going on this weekend as the Cyclocross racing in Northern California rolls on. Info on the Surf City Series can be found here- While info on Cross In The Capitol can be found here- Good luck to all who race this weekend, and be sure that besides racing hard and being serious about your Cross, never forget to be a good sport and have fun!...
