This Sunday is the 1st race of the CCCX XC Series held in Ft Ord. Racer/promoter Keith DeFiebre said the trails in Ft Ord are in the best shape he has ever seen! Apparently after years of Keith maintaining the trails and forming the turns to keep riders in line, the trails have now set up to be better then ever.Also, congratulations to Keith DeFiebre for being appointed as the new NCNCA V.P. of MTB & Cyclocross. New NCNCA President Lorri Lee Lown is a strong advocate of MTB rides and races, and Lown has a vision of continued growth for all that is MTB in NorCal. Lown selected DeFiebre to be a part of her new staff for the NCNCA to drive a long term goal of increasing the growth of MTB racing and riding in Northern California. This region has many strong events and experienced promoters: the CCCX DH/XC Series, the NorCal High School League, Team Bigfoot's races, Northstar at Tahoe DH/XC races, Napa's XC events, the Bike Monkey events, the Prairie City races, the Total Body Fitness events, the Sea Otter Classic and the Global Biorhythms events, are just a few of the success stories for MTB racing in NorCal. Hopefully Keith can bring some cohesion to NorCal's MTB schedule of DH and XC races, as well as work with USA Cycling to bring more attention to the needs of NorCal trail users.
The 5 mile loop features lots of twisting turns, some steep climbs, and many single track trails that bring a smile to your face when racing. First race starts at 9:00 a.m. with the Beginners division, Sport group starts at 11:00 a.m. and the Expert/Pro wave will go at 1:00 p.m.
The CCCX Series also has a new web site for all their races, with all the current info for the CCCX events posted. The new web address is www.cccxcycling.com.
