SoCal Cross Fever #1 (MT SAC)

CX racing is so fun to watch. The action is right there, in your face. I think I'm going to give it a try!

There are some pics. I will post more during the week at BicycleFriends.com

Someone here in BF has this as their signature:

Cyclocross: a bike race made as stupid as possible; yet people still do it.

They aren't actually racing on the Mount Sac cross-country course, are they? My XC used to race at meets there and there were steeeep sections on that course.

Portions of the course. Poopout hill one called it was a steep run/walk up. It can be seen in the above gallery.

I really liked the course and did about as good as I've ever done - I even almost lapped a guy.

Here's what my GPS showed, it cuts some of the corners and such; but the overall is there.

Click on Playback and then zoom in a bit and pick your favorite type of map.

I can't remember if it was last year or the year before at Mnt. Sac, but there was a guy in front of me on a cyclo cross bike in a very bumpy single track portion. I had to go around as he was slow in that section. Every one else had mountian bikes. I think he finished descent though.

About $35 gets you racing.
DO IT. It's fun. I plan on doing much more of it. I wanted to go to that one but it didn't work out. Not sure if I can make this next one either.

Thanks. I heard there is going to be a series in June/July maybe in Mt Baldy. Coates Cyclery in Claremont mentioned this to me over the weekend.
