Update: Sacramento ‘Cross Coming Together
27 June 2014
Jen Claassen has updated the SacCX season: the latest confirmed event is at Mill View Ranch, Camino near Placerville on 4 January 2014. This leaves just two of eight events that need firming up (sic). The Claassens look to be putting together a great cyclocross season coming out of the State’s capitol.
Claassen wrote by e-mail that “the course will be nice and twisty… we’re winding it through an old Christmas tree farm, a small vineyard and an orchard. They have a huge wraparound porch that you can see pretty much the whole course from, and the owner has a fantastic array of food (fresh-made crepes, all sorts of apple pies/doughnuts/turnovers, marshmallow roasting, and she’s planning on doing a BBQ). We’re really excited for this one because it should be fun for the whole family to come out.”
In other Sacramento ‘Cross news, Marty Woy’s Wednesday Night Pick-ups have published the coordinates as 38° 38′ 51″N, 121°9′ 18″W for their Folsom venue. These races run simultaneously with the West Sacramento location from 2 July to 27 August. Make sure to enter the compass points in searching the location otherwise one may end up in the middle of the Bohai Straights!
