Norcal Racing This Weekend: Mar 31 - Apr 2, 2006

So it's a light weekend leading up to next week's big Sea Otter event on the coast, but there are a still a few places that you can get some minute last tune-ups:
  • Tonight's (Friday 3/31) Short Track XC event at the Fool's MTB race marks the start of the weekend's festivities in the Whiskeytown NRA. The event is described as "Starting at 5:00 you sign in for your first lap when your ready, hit the 1-mile loop as hard & fast as you can." Online registration is closed but you can also register onsite.
  • Continuing at the Fool's MTB Race on Saturday, is a XC race is scheduled for between 2.5 and 9 miles on different courses depending on category. The race starts early tomorrow morning, so you need to get your stuff together and roll up there tonight. More information on both the XC-ST and XC race are available at
  • Finally, on Sunday, TBF Racing is having their Real MTB Triathlon. For those of you who have been itching to try out their new wetsuits all winter, here is the chance to test their thermal limits. Held in Folsom Lake in Granite Bay, CA, the race is part of Xterra's USA Championship Series and is described as "The race starts with a half-mile swim in Folsom Lake, water temperature around 62 degrees (ed - My ass it's 62, think more like 50). Wetsuits are permitted (ed - think required) for all athletes. The 16-mile bike course on single track trails around the lake is two loops with mixed terrain of single track, downhills, climbs, sand, and packed decomposted granite. The 3-mile run has a mix of trails and roads." This is going to be brutal race -- I can see the lake from my house and it looks high and cold. Registration is still open here.
Everyone pray for dry weather. Please. I'm begging you.
