You have to admit, it was a little odd not having a cyclocross event to go to last weekend. Sleeping in late, watching a little football, even reading the Sunday paper, for crying out loud. BO-RING!
We hope you had a wonderful holiday break, took in some quality time with family and friends, that Santa came through with the goods and all that jazz. But now it’s time to get back to what we really enjoy.
CX, baby! This season ain’t over yet. Not by a long shot. This weekend marks the start of the Cross Fever Series, and right in its draft is one of the most important events on many a ‘cross competitor’s calendar: the District Championships.
SoCalCross finally makes its first appearance in Orange County this year with a full weekend of fun and excitement at Irvine Lake.
