The fit race 'cross and 'cross gets 'em filthy!

SacCX to the Fore

26 September 2015

Tomorrow, the Sacramento Cyclocross Series is set to open it’s 2015 season with their event at Orangevale Park, Orangevale. Event organizers Jen and Clint Claassen and TimeYourRace have already been busy this season, providing timing and scoring at the West Sac Cyclocross Grand Prix and CrossReno, so they are in grand form for their second season in charge of SacCX.

The Claassen’s reinvigorated the series last year by moving venues closer to Sacramento and laying on a terrific District Championships at the Lange Twins Winery. This season there is again an eight-race calendar; the series includes two new venue at Lakeside Church, Folsom, and the Sacramento Raceway, an earlier October date for Lange Twins, and a December night race to close out the year.

The Sacramento Cyclocross Series has been running for many years starting under the auspices of John and Linda Elgart in 2002-03. Rich Maile took the helm for a further 3 years before Brian Joder and BicyclingEvents.com began running the series for 2010-11. It’s rich history has seen many national champions take to the field including both Elgarts, Cody Kaiser, Don Myrah, and Kateřina Nash. A certain claim-to-fame for several years was the naked cyclocross race at a clothing-optional resort.
