A great day was had by all at the warm first weekend in Fall appropriately names Autumn Cross kicked off at Verdugo Park in Glendale. 400+ riders strong came to the famed championship CX course.  Thanks to everyone for coming from across the region including our neighbors from Arizona and Las Vegas!
Thanks to Barry Goch we have some fun videos and Jeff Urban great photos and interviews.  Here is elite men’s winner Jason Siegle post race interview: YouTube Preview Image

Women’s growth spiked 30% at the Season Opener see why: YouTube Preview Image

Speaking of amazing ladies… Enjoy our virtual interview with Elite Women’s winner Amanda Nauman…

1. How did the race unfold play out for you?

I missed my pedal when the whistle went off but the straightaway was so long that I was able to make up the lost ground and get right with Nicole going into the first turn and the tight, twisty, dusty turns thereafter. We had a good back and forth battle going on for about half a lap until Nicole slid out in one of the mulch sections and I was able to make a small gap. From there I rode as hard as I could for the rest of the race knowing I needed to get good race-pace practice and shake out the first-race-of-the-season legs (the worst!). Nicole kept the pressure on and I was just happy to be back racing ‘cross for my favorite local crowd!

2. What do you think about number of women in attendance?

The number of women was truly incredible to see. There were so many women that we could’ve almost had two different wave times because so many of us were on the course at once! That’s a nice problem to have in my opinion! I was impressed with the number of women racing but especially stoked to see more depth in the Women’s A race as well! The more women show up to race, the more it motivates everyone to deliver their best effort every weekend and that’s inspirational for all of us.

3. What are your plans.goals for the season? – I did get your schedule thanks!

UCI point-hunting is the goal for this season again. I’ll be traveling a bit, but racing back at home on a few of the non-traveling weekends from now til Nationals. My goal is to improve my ranking in the Pro CX Tour standings as well as the UCI overall points.

4. Tell us about your team goals – juniors etc (happy to mention your sponsors)

The official team name is SDG – Muscle Monster this year and we’re happily supporting a team of 8 riders at the local and national level. Big goal is to score decent points throughout the season to position ourselves well for great performances at USAC CX Nationals in January.

It was awesome to kick off the season with a win from both me and Jason!

5. We had a great turnout for the Season Opener.  Love to keep the momentum going. Anything you want to mention about why you love cross why more people should do it.
I was thrilled to see so many people show up to the opening weekend of the season and I’d love for everyone to keep that momentum going strong for the remainder of the season. We all have to remember the first-race excitement that we had  on Saturday before  Sunday’s race and carry that feeling/motivation through to January. As someone racing in the elite fields at a national level I know for a fact that the grassroots and local cyclocross scenes absolutely ensure that the pros can go do their job and race bikes and I am so appreciative of that format we have here in the United States. There would be no professional cyclocross without the amateur programs and grassroots races.
I’m so proud to be a product of Socal Cross and it was great to start the season with my local cyclocross family at Verdugo!

The SoCalCross Prestige Series, often referred to as the Nation’s biggest cyclocross racing series, bursts onto the scene this Sunday, September 27, 2015 at Verdugo Park in Glendale, California. The series features 14 weekends of racing stopping in San Luis Obispo, San Diego County, Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire highlighting some of the most historic and beautiful parks in the region.

Cyclocross is the most spectator and beginner friendly form of bike racing and the SoCalCross Prestige Series caters to everyone in the community, especially those who are new to or have never tried  cycling. Aside from ringing cowbells and cheering racers from around the course, family friendly activities include free Kiddie Cross races for kids, Community Cross Fun Races and Clinics and vendors to peruse. Kiddie Cross is free and all participants receive an award. Community Cross Fun Races and Clinics offer a chance for anyone to learn about cyclocross and try a beginner friendly race on a short course. For those who are ready to get their feet muddy, the First Timers Race is 1 lap on the race course. Demo bicycles are available to those who would like to try the sport (please reserve in advance).

Starting this weekend, Juniors, Masters and Amateurs and Elites will test mettle against the best in their own categories grasping for a berth on the start line of the 2016 National Championships. With more teams, more racers and a growing audience, the competition will be hot.

In November, CXLA at Griffith Park packs two days of Internationally sanctioned races.

The Nation’s and World’s best male and female ‘crossers will converge in Southern California once again to test their earn precious UCI points (Union Cycliste Internationale, the International governing body of cycling) in the battle for World Cup and World Championship start positions. SoCalCross has drawn big names such as Katerina Nash (LUNA), Adam Craig (Giant Bicycles), Tim Johnson and many, many others. 2015/16 will be no different.

This weekend’s race begins the Series on the racers’ favorite course at Verdugo Park in Glendale, CA. Notable venues fill the calendar and includes Camp Pendleton in Oceanside where racers dip their toes in the Pacific Ocean for Storm the Beach.

The SoCalCross series is brought to you by generous support from Knobbe Martens, Voler, Jenson USA and CLIF Bar.

Event Type: SCPS Race
Event Date: Sun Oct 11 2015 Start Time: 10:30 AM
Venue: Red Beach - Oceanside Location: Las Pulgas Road Exit off 5 Freeway
Oceanside CA 92055

Cyclocross returns to north San Diego County – Oceanside where the sand meets the sea!

Co-hosted by Celo Pacific and SoCalCross. San Diego meets Belgium in the SoCal Classic race patterned after the famous Duinencross race in Koksijde Belgium and takes place on north Oceanside’s “Red Beach”.

Expect to run and ride along the shoreline and bluffs, powering through the beach sand each lap. The course favors the CX bike for its long flat stretches with wider tires handling the loose sand better. It will be exciting to see how it all plays out… so don’t miss the action!
