Santa Rosa Cup CX to Head Another Busy Weekend
9 November 2015
This coming weekend’s cyclocross racing, in the NorCal Nevada region, will take place far and wide. The Sagebrush Cyclocross Series holds its event at Davis Creek Park, New Washoe City on Saturday, 14 November. Both the Surf City Cyclo-X and Sacramento Cyclocross Series hold races on the Sunday.
Another big event is the 3-day Santa Rosa Cup CX. In part to find a formula for providing an attractive event for cyclocross racers, and following the lead of other 3-day events such as Jingle ‘Cross, the race for the Cup begins on Friday, 13 November. Juniors kick the weekend into gear with a 5pm start at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Racing continues into the night with the last start for All A Men at 8:15pm.
Saturday sees the same County Fairgrounds venue but with a course change. The finale on Sunday moves to Spring Lake Regional Park, a return for the venue last used for cyclocross in 2011. Racing on the Saturday and Sunday begins at 8:30am. Series crowns go to entrants of all 3 days with the tie-breaker going to the highest placing on the last day. The recent rains will dampen the dust and bring in new conditions for terrain and traction. This will be more so as the locales are certain to receive a good share of the rain.
