A 10 minute internet search revealed that while there were many races in California in 2005, I could find none for 2007-07. At least as far as I can tell.
How do I find out about races in my area?

Not sure, its our first. The folks teaching it came to us and wanted to use our space. I'm taking the class being a complete newbe to CX. Still building the bike. I'll report back as more info comes.
I was talking to a friend who rides cyclocross for the Lapierre-Ritchey team yesterday and, remembering this thread, asked him about the NorCal race schedule. He mentioned Pilarcitos (http://www.pilarcitos.com/BASPS.htm), Velo Bella (www.velobella.com) who are putting on the Surf City Series, and Yahoo! groups - bayareacyclocross as some places to get further info.
