Central Coast Cyclocross Race #1 This Sunday at FT ORD in Monterey

The CCCX Cross Series will open its racing action for the 2008 edition this coming Sunday Sept. 21 at the former Army Base of Ft Ord. The race course will be a fast affair with lots of trails being used in the enchanted forest section of land known as the Happy Trails. The course has 2 distinct pavement sections, lots of hard packed dirt sections, a plethora of twisting turns, and sand obstacles that are just soft enough to require skill and fitness to conquer.
The race course is fun to ride, but will be a true challenge when battled at full throttle. There will be 3 or 4 dismount sections depending on ones skill level. As well as a few climbing sections to break up the high speeds on most of the course.
Here is a video link to the racing action on a similar course during the 2007 season. This years course will be run in the opposite direction then the route on the video. The registration- parking area & start/finish will be in a different area then last years course.
Series info can be found here-
Directions to registration can be found here- http://cccx. org/2008/ directionsEGarri son4.htm
Please follow signs to parking area near registration.
The start/finish area is approx 1/3 of a mile from registration, and parking is limited in this area, so please plan accordingly.
At each race the CCCX Series will have cash payouts to Elite Men & Elite Women's fields, as well as the Master 35+ A & Master 45+ A divisions. There will also be medals going out to top finishers in all divisions. At 12:00 p.m. there will be a free kids race.
This area of Ft Ord is a great place to ride your bike, so please enjoy the roads and trails of the former Army Base. Drive slowly as the speed limit is strictly enforced.
The CCCX Series would like to thank all of the sponsors who support the racing action. Series Champions will receive a custom CCCX winners jersey presented from the series sponsors.
