This is awesome news from
David Gill, Team Santa Cruz, and Jeff Clark! 
The 2011 Nor-Cal Cross season is now legit with races completely filling up January, which is the Championship month for Cyclocross.  January Cross racing is where boy racers become Hard Men and the
"Peak Season" of true Cyclocross action takes place.
Big thanks to the CCCX Series and the Surf City Series for hosting events in January, which is the best month of all for Cross racing.

Universal Sports is showing the UCI World Cup Cyclocross races currently.  The time slot is 1:00 a.m. which is not prime time, but at least Cyclocross is finally getting some play on American television.  Tonight is the Men's race from the Czech Republic.  If your not a night owl, set your recorder to capture some amazing racing action, and watch Sven Nys steal the victory from Czech star and current World Champion Zdenek Stybar. 
One note, the coverage has no announcing at all, which is sad.  They should have had the famous Belgium announcers who would have surely screamed...
Ooohh La La La La.... as Nys attacked to victory on the final portions of the last lap of the main event.
Check out how hard core the Men's race is.  The speed is ripping fast and there is never a drop in tempo for the front riders.
