Bike Monkey's Sonoma Series #2 will be here in less than 4 days, and the weather is heating up.Looks like fun.
We've requested a water truck at Liberty Glen Campground to keep everyone smiling. I will be heading out tonight and tomorrow to prep, and the course will be marked Friday mid-day for those wanting to check it out before the race.
Buy in is $20 - the cheapest race in town. Last month many of you asked about a cyclocross category. You're all nuts just like me. So CX it is - Bring your hammers!

CCCX DH COURSE #4 Profile- The DH route for race #4 has been selected and it looks to be a fun course where speed and turning ability will dictate who is fastest. The course descends approximately 1000 feet in 2 miles and speeds will be extremely high. The course will also feature many turn sections and small drops that will make it fun and challenging for all levels of riders.Also please note the the CCCX DH series is adding one new date to the 2007 schedule. The new date is Sunday June 3 and the series will now be 7 races in total. With the new race added on June 3rd, there will now be TWO throw out races out of the first SIX races, plus the mandatory score from the final race of the series.
I'll update the schedule.

Organizers for the Sea Otter Classic, a Celebration of Sport, announced today the event dates for the 18th annual event would be May 1- 4, 2008. At a recent strategic planning meeting, the event's directors considered several factors in determining the move into early May. Key factors included the probability of better weather conditions and the likely schedules of national and international racing and event calendars for 2008.This should certainly scramble next year's schedule, but at least they decided it early.
"In response to requests and recommendations from our athletes, fans, and sponsors, we have decided to host the Sea Otter Classic on May 1-4, 2008," said Frank Yohannan, president and CEO of the Sea Otter Classic, Inc. "We look forward to seeing all our supporters at the 18th Annual Sea Otter Classic."
UPDATE: They moved the dates back to the usual mid April dates.

Join the City of Folsom Trails Division to help build the new Mountain Bike Skills Course at Cummings Family Park. This new course has several exciting features for bikers of all skill levels including: Elevated Trails, a Pump Track, Rhythm Trails and a Wall Ride. This project was funded through a generous $10,000 grant from REI.The Mountain Bike Skills Course is in Cummings Family Park, located at 1775 Creekside Dr. in Folsom, CA. There is a $2 fee to use the new course, which is open on Mondays from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m., Fridays from 2 to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 1 to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m. Beginning June 2, summer hours will be 1 to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 8 p.m. Sunday. Holiday hours (May 28, July 4 and Sept. 3) will be 1 to 8 p.m. All users must wear bike helmets. For additional information, call 817-2767.
More than 100 volunteers helped erect the course, which is one of only a few in Northern California. The first phase includes all the elevated structures, including beginner, intermediate and advanced elevated trails and a 15-foot high wall ride. A jump course was constructed for use by riders of all skill levels.
“One of our volunteers was Folsom High School student Robert Cline, who constructed a 10-inch wide, 75-foot long elevated trail for his Senior Project,” said Jim Konopka, Senior Trails Planner for the City. “This is a very popular element of the skills course that will be used by many mountain bikers in the coming years.” The course layout was a coordinated effort between the City of Folsom, the International Mountain Biking Association and several local mountain bike riders.
I went by this on Saturday afternoon and it looks pretty nice.
