SCPS3: Storm the Beach Oceanside

Cross at the beach where the sand meets the sea in San Diego!

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!

THE COURSE: Wide, fast dirt roads; deep sand sections; barriers; ride-able hard packed beach section; and a few small climbs and technical turns. Race held during LOW TIDE so no need to ride through the surf! THE VENUE: On the beach at the north end of Oceanside California, just south of San Clemente. The venue’s main area is set up on the bluff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Coast shoreline. Bleachers near the start/finish offer great views of the course.

THE SCHEDULE: Course is open at 10am for inspection. Best in between races due to ocean tide changes.
