Gheto Wednesnight Pickups
2 July 2014
Gheto’s Wednesday Night Pickups started off the region’s cyclocross this evening. Social media appears generally positive although a last-minute venue change may have stranded a coupe of racers. Just a little more than 9 weeks until full-bore weekend cyclocross with plenty in-between.
Emily Kachorek reports from West Sac on the first wheels-on-the-ground of the season:
“We had about 30 people out to the West Sac Pickup race tonight. We used a site which is a field abandoned to 4x4s and motorcycles which created a nice network of singletrack, berms, whoops, and some gravel roads. Delta Breezes kept the temps tolerable (at least for us central valley dwellers).
East Sac pickup reported about 15 people in Folsom, where apparently the heat was less forgiving than in West Sacramento. A good time was reported, and a few attendees were there for their first CX experience.”
