About SoCalCross - What is CX - Series Riders Guide - Training - Rules
Southern California Cyclocross (known as SoCalCross) was formed in 2005 by an informal association of cycling clubs eager to grow the sport and motivated to become the premier cyclocross race series in Southern California and nationwide! Since then the Series has grown 500% and boasts over 200 races to date from San Diego to San Luis Obispo!
SoCalCross hosts UCI Internationally sanctioned Elite, U23 and Junior races for Men and Women bringing together some of the top ranked athletes from around the World to Southern California. SoCalCross has been hosting UCI races since 2007 and the only UCI events in the State of California!

Each Prestige Series race also offers free beginner clinics and offers demo-rental bikes to newer riders with focus on Juniors and Collegiate/U23 participants.
The Series’ has become more than a bike race hosting healthy lifestyle, safety education for the local community called CycloFests including a healthy lifestyle expo, fun rides and runs, kids racing and bike skills zone all in a super fun festival environment.
