It has been a while since the NCNCA Districts for Cyclocross have been contested in Reno, and promoter Kevin Joell is committed to making the event outstanding.  For future updates keep a eye on the Reno Wheelman website.  Cross is always exciting in the rarefied air of Reno, and District Champion titles will be on the line at Clayton Middle School on Nov. 20.

If you ever have a chance to make it to Fresno for some racing, I highly recommend the Homegrown Cyclocross Series.  This series throws down some competitive competitions mixed with a very friendly and fun filled race environment.  The courses are good, and the Fresno cycling scene continues to grow each season.  I personally have enjoyed racing Cyclocross and Road events in Fresno, and I always try to pump up the race scene there.  When posting about Fresno Cross I must make mention of the great Clu Cotter, who passed away in January this year in a tragic helicopter accident.  Clu was a mainstay of Fresno Cyclocross, and a man who was dignified and honorable as a competitor and a true friend to all.  Clu loved his Cyclocross and is sorely missed.

Another opportunity for Cross racing in Northern California can be found at the RIDE ON RACE SERIES, which takes place in the Shasta & Tehama counties.  Race attendance has continued to increase in each year of the races held in and around Shasta and Redding.  This is another prime example of how Cyclocross brings communities together and it's popularity in places such as Shasta County will continue to rise as long as there are races to tackle.
