MTB Racing This Weekend: March 14 & 15, 2009

Another big weekend of racing in NorCal:
  • Saturday is the second Sand Hill Spring Gravity race in the East Bay. This weekend it is Dual Slalom instead of Mountaincross.
  • Sunday is the annual Cool MTB Race near Auburn, CA. The Cool race is held on the Olmstead Loop, renowned for muddy (if not snowy) conditions.
  • Sunday is also the third CCCX XC race near Seaside, CA. Head honcho of the CCCX race, Keith DeFiebre, describe this weekend's race as "The CCCX XC race will be a 5 mile lap featuring a few new sections of trail in Ft Ord never used before for a MTB race. The race route features multiple climbs and lots of fun riding single track that is in perfect condition after last weeks rain. Spring time really is the best time to race Mountain Bikes in this area of Ft Ord as the flowers are starting to bloom, the grass is green, and the trails are smooth and fast, making for some beautiful scenery and fun racing."
Hope everyone takes advantage of the extra daylight to get out and race (or at least ride) this weekend.
