NCNCA Cyclocross is very fortunate to have a great selection of series races- such as Surf City, CCCX, Santa Rosa Cup, Sacramento,
Fresno Homegrown, and Sagebrush.
Equally great are the classic one day events during the season!  One day events transcend and share the love of the sport to each community that hosts these fun filled days of racing and excitement on the Cross bike
One of those very special events takes place this Sunday,
Ted Vidnovic, the President of the Valley Spokesman Racing Team, which is the team behind the very successful Wente Road Race & Criterium, have put forth tremendous effort to make sure the first year version of the Livermore Cyclocross Festival will be a instant classic and a go to event on the NCNCA- Nor-Cal
Cross calendar for years to come...

The Livermore Cyclocross Festival has a full schedule of activities.  The kids race is sure to make for super photos, and most of the divisions line up accordingly for the 2012 NCNCA Fit & Filthy Points Series chase.
The course itself uses the Rodeo Grounds, as well as the large stadium, making for speedy racing on a track that will be demanding and terrific to take on..
Go to support the event & most of all have fun!
Saturday, the day before the Livermore Cyclocross Festival, will be Race #3 of the Central Coast Series- CCCX.  This race will be very special and enchanting as a brand new course, and entirely new area will be mixed into the CCCX rotation of courses for this race. 
Consisting of Sand Dunes, Ice Plant, Hard packed Trails, Oak Forest, Single Track, & Fire Roads....
The CSUMB- California State University At Monterey Bay- new course appears to be one of the very best in Northern California if first reviews from the test crews are correct.  Any time a new CCCX course has been introduced to Nor-Cal racers the positive vibes get really flowing for new shredding trails and roads for Cross.  The CSUMB course will not disappoint and the new area for this race seems to be tailor made for
Cyclocross racing!

Also on Sunday is the first race of the Sacramento Cyclocross Series to be held at Vacaville's Lagoon Valley Park.  This event is hosted by Monticello Cycling Club.
Lagoon Valley has a fairly long history of hosting Cyclocross events, even hosting the NCNCA District Championships one year.  The course can be one of the fastest of the season, with long straights and a plethora of wide open dirt roads where big gear is required for
all-out speed.  Yet don't let this description fool you...  There is a chance of elevation gains and hills, and a few of the hill sections can be extremely steep and brutal and make for outstanding Cyclocross racing.  The Sacramento Series, like all the Nor-Cal races,
take great pride & care in putting together
excellent courses and fine race routes. 
The Nor-Cal standard of courses is top notch...!
This makes our racers equally top notch!

Giant weekend in store for
NCNCA Cyclocross!
