That is 13 divisions battling it out for the coveted California State Champion winners jersey.  Which for the first time in NCNCA history is being awarded to the champions at no charge to the rider. 
Thank you to the NCNCA for this gesture to reward Nor-Cal Cyclocross!
Also the 2011 District Championship race will have a
Women's Single Speed division for the first time ever.

History will be made at the Central Coast Cyclocross race
this Sunday at Toro Park, the NCNCA Cross State Championships!

Reigning USA Cycling Cyclocross National Champions in their respective
 Masters divisions John & Linda Elgart(Webcor/Alto Velo)- both pictured below- will not be in attendance at Toro Park due to prior commitments, which makes the 65+ Men's & 55+ Women's fields wide open for the NCNCA State title for Cyclocross. 

Masters racing at the Nor-Cal/Nevada State Championships are always off the hook.  Defending champion in the 35+ Men's field is Don Myrah(

Please note that the Women's Single Speed NCNCA State Championship race will take place in the final start wave of the day at around 1:30 p.m.  The Women's Elite and Masters races take place
at 12:30 p.m.  The Men's Elite race and the Men's & Women's Single Speed "A" races will take place following the main event Women's competitions.

 Gannon Myall(California Berry Farms/Specialized) has been on a mission during the 2011 Cross season, and is a favored rider to claim high honors in the Men's 45+ division.

 Defending Men's 45+ Masters District Champion John Mundelius(California Berry Farms/Specialized) is keen to repeat his 2010 State Championship performance.

 One of the best Masters racers ever from Nor-Cal is
Alan Coats(California Giant Berry Farms/Specialized).  Coats will be eager to have a strong ride at Toro Park as his Cyclocross career began years ago at the CCCX races
when he was a resident of the Monterey Peninsula.

 Henry Kramer(California Giant Berry Farms/Specialized) is a strong
favorite in the Men's 55+ division,. 
However defending 55+ NCNCA State Champion
Norm Kreiss(California Berry Farms/Specialized)
