The Stafford Lake Cyclocross Race will be held November 6th, 2011 in Novato, CA and features "a flat to rolling 2.5 mile course that will offer five, maybe six features.  Lots of good passing areas and great spectator visibility.  Two run ups, a set of boards, a sand pit for your running pleasure and a special feature or two that will be revealed on race day.  BONUS: the course goes right through the beer garden every lap!"
