The exclusive 1st Annual El Grande Fondo de Los Angeles Crest travels through the classic high country of the San Gabriel Mountains along scenic Angeles Crest Highway and up to historic Mt. Wilson. This super-sweet event, a partnership between LACBC and National Forest Foundation, is one you will want to say, “I was there for the first one!”

This epic ride travels through the unbelievable vistas of the Angeles Forest. Starting with a climb up secluded Big Tujunga Canyon, it then traverses Angeles Crest Highway. The ride includes: a full century (100 mi), a metric century (62 mi) and 30 mile route options!

The full century will travel under majestic pines for a summit finish at Islip Saddle and a picturesque vista of the Antelope Valley. The full century and the metric century will include a final ascent to Mount Wilson and a sneak peak of the incredible panorama of Los Angeles before coasting back to Crescenta Valley Park. The 30 mile route will wind up clear creek canyon for a scenic summit finish and a wonderful descent to Crescenta Valley Park.

This ride benefits the National Forest Foundation and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition!

Dear Racers,
Thank you for your patience with results delays this season. Registration and timing have been smoothed out and processing faster!  If you register online, have a VIP season chip and your permanent bib number go to the VIP line to sign in. That’s it!
ALL RETURNING RACERS please bring your number(s) back to reuse for the category you are entered. There is one race number per category, so multi-racers make sure you are wearing the right number please.  We have noted some numbers to be replaced and will have listed on the website and replacement number with your check in packet if you register online.
Below is a link to our Bib Number Database. We are using a whole new number system this season. Each type of race has a different set of numbers assigned to it (usually by the hundreds). You will get separate bib numbers for each race that you participate in. Those will now be your numbers for the entire season, whether they are paper or fabric bibs. Please keep all of your bibs, reuse them, and bring them with you every time that you race.
If you are not listed in the Bib Number Database, you either haven’t raced yet this season or you need new numbers the next time you race. If you’re highlighted in red, it means you have used multiple numbers in the past. We need to know if you still have those numbers (to reuse them) or if you will need a whole new bib the next time you race.
For any updates, questions, concerns, etc, please e-mail erica@socalcross.org

Current Bib Number Database: HERE

The Name-Category-Bib tab is ordered by last name. There are also tabs for each of the races. You can look yourself up whichever way is easier for you. Thank you for helping us update our lists!
PLEASE NOTE: If you have a number from last season or are done for the season and have a cloth number please return it to registration for a raffle ticket.
LET’S CELEBRATE! Krosstoberfest Winners get Champion Beer steins thanks to Jenson USA and throughtout the day we will call up top 5 in each category for podium celebrations all day long!

RULES: This event is permitted and sanctioned by the North American Bicycle Racing Association.

All NABRA rules apply.  Event will be held rain or shine.  No refunds.  Bicycle and wheel changes are allowed in the designated pit areas only.  Helmets are required at all times while on the bike.  Water feeds are allowed during the race.  Cyclocross or hard tail mountain bikes are best for handling the course and obstacles.  Mountain Bike pedals and shoes are best or flat pedals with trail running shoes.  This event is held under NABRA Cycling Permit.  2014 NABRA rules apply.

Warming up on the Course Once the last rider has crossed the line in the current active wave, the race officials will allow riders to “pre-ride” the course to become familiar with route and obstacles. Please enter the course past the finish line and do not pass or enter in front of riders who are still racing on the course. As in the past, while pre-riding do not cross the finish line while the timing system is running and do not pass active racers on course. There will always be enough time to complete one lap before the next race starts. Once the next race has started, warming up on the course is not allowed.

CATEGORIES: Senior (over CX age 18) and Masters categories may be listed by ability as well as age. Ability categories are as follows:

A (CX Cat 1-4) is the fastest group out there – also might be called expert, elite. Highly competitive – if you aren’t an experienced racer (in cyclocross or another discipline) this is likely not the group for you.

B (CX Cat 3-5) is the intermediate group – faster and more experienced than “C” riders but not at “A” pace yet.

C (CX Cat 4-5) is geared toward the beginner rider – new racers should usually start here and move to “B” when comfortable.

Masters is for riders with a racing age (on Dec 31, 2015) equal to or greater than the indicated age. Masters A (CX-1-4) is often the second fastest group on the course, just behind the A race. Basically “A”racers that are older and have family/career commitments.

Masters B (CX3-5) is generally a bit slower than B, as the average age is higher in the Masters group For new racers eligible to race masters, you might want to try both “C” and Masters B to see which you prefer.

CYCLOCROSS RACING AGE:  A rider’s racing age for the 2014-15 Cyclocross Season is the ‘racing age’ the year in which the CX World Championships take place which is February, 2015.  Basically your racing age for the entire cyclocross season running September 2014 through January 2015 is your age as of 12/31/2015.

SoCalCross discourages sandbagging. Please upgrade to the higher category when qualified.  NOTE: USA Cycling does not recognize ABR or NABRA sanctioned events for CX category upgrades or USAC national ranking points. More info at:  www.USAcycling.org
