So with USA Cycling’s Cyclocross Nationals in Madison WI this week – our California contingent of crossers is few and far between. Attendance at Nats is way down almost half as many as the last few seasons. The expected cold and economy of travel kept people away especially from the state of California making this nationals a central affair Colorado and east.
A few SoCalCrossers did some out and here is what has come so far. Will report on more results as they come:
Wednesday, Jan 4th results:
Michael ROECKLEIN finished 17th in the 30+ Non-Championship Men’s race
