West Sac Back for More Jam

27 July 2015

The West Sacramento Cyclocross Grand Prix, presented by Cederon, is set to run again on 12 September 2015 at the River Walk Park. The successful inaugural event last year proved popular with over 350 racers on the day, including four categories each with more than 40 competitors.

“One of the reasons why the WSCXGP was so awesome and so successful is teams from the Bay Area showing up in force,” reports Matt Hargrove. “It was awesome. That singlespeed race last year was fantastic because we had a whole bunch of really fast guys come in from the Bay Area.

“The response throughout the year from folks has been extremely positive. I think the vibe we were able to put together last year, Rich Maile and Pete Knudson putting together such an awesome racecourse, and that we had such a great facility, all those things together really went well.

“Most have been raving about the race, making sure its coming back, asking when it is, and trying to see if we’re on track for making it a bigger and better race. The vibe has been all very positive.”

Race Coverage Begins

5 September 2014

The NorCalNevada 2014-15 cyclocross season begins tomorrow. Fit and Filthy will switch modes to mostly race coverage for the duration. Expect to read reports from a select event each weekend. First up is this weekend’s West Sacramento Grand Prix presented by Ceradon.

Matt Hargrove and his cohorts at NorCalCX are receiving plenty of deserved attention with their new event…it is a welcome addition to the regional cyclocross-scene. Nevertheless, following that opening curtain is one of the region’s well established series in Central Coast Cyclo•Cross. CCCX has grown over the past couple of years with the addition of the CSU Monterey Bay venue. This season’s nine-race series opens up at the signature locale of Fort Ord.
