Norcal Racing This Weekend: Feb 25-26, 2006

This weekend marks the start of the gravity season here in NorCal:
  • Saturday: The first gravity event of the season is P&R Sports Mountain Cross kickoff of the Sandhill Spring Series. The race is located at Sand Hill Ranch just north of Livermore, CA. Signup and practice for the races begin at 8 AM, while qualifying starts at 10:30 AM. This is a NORBA sanctioned event (so bring your license or pay the one day fee). Registration is onsite for $30/race. Parking is an extra $5. While this race is mountaincross (MTX), the next race in the series is dual slalom (DS).

  • Sunday: The second race of the 2006 CCCX Mountain-Bike Race Series will be held at Fort Ord’s East Garrison in Seaside, CA (north of Monterey, CA). The course is described as “laps will be between five and six miles … 3 laps for Beginners, 4 laps for Sport, 5 laps for Expert/Pro.” The race costs $30 ($15 for juniors) with registration onsite. Racing begins at 9 AM, 11:00 AM or 1:00 PM depending on your division. Please note new starting times and arrive early to register.
It looks like our cold snap is mostly gone and I don't think the rain should move in until next week, so it looks like a great weekend for racing.
