Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

How does one find out about cyclocross races?

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?

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.
