2008 Parkfield Classic

This year's Parkfield Classic dates have been set for October 4th and 5th in Parkfield, CA. The Classic is organized by the Cal Poly Wheelmen and features four races over the two days:
  • Cross Country (Saturday Morning, sponsored by Affinity Chiropractic Center): Burly, lung busting, screaming fire-road course, point to point. We're sending our creative minds out to see what new twists we can deliver to this old faithful course. We're sending people off bright and early again this year. ALL NORBA/USAC XC Racers get a BBQ ticket included with their race. Distances: Beginner: 9 miles, Sport: 15 miles, Pro/Expert: 24 miles.
  • Dual Slalom (Saturday afternoon, sponsored by Art's Cyclery): Dual Slalom Qualifiers and Head to Head races. Head to head races on separate courses join in the middle for lots of spectator friendly action.
  • Short Track (Sunday morning, sponsored by Foothill Cyclery): looks like it will be similar to last year's course. We will hold it on the flat course from last year, so be ready for physically demanding race.
  • Downhill (Sunday, sponsored by Sponsor it!): Sweet Glorious Single Track. What else can you say. Single Run format. Bypass options are given for most obstacles. Expert course different than Sport course.
You can find out more information (and possibly register online, although I can't find the link) at the Parkfield Classic website.

You can also find reports from previous year's Parkfield Classics in the archives.
