Peak Season Cyclocross: Git yer mud on
PEAK SEASON STARTS NOW!
Had enough? Nope, didn't think so. Neither have we, and we're just getting started.
Hosted by the Santa Cruz County Cycling Club, Peak Season Cyclocross is the equivalent of surfing's big wave contests, where the events are only held when the conditions are right. Well folks, the conditions are right. If the weather does what they* say it's going to do, we're just now coming into the meat of the cyclocross weather. *They = Mike Evans, our own weather savant and heckler supreme. Mud On!

All races currently scheduled at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds,
2601 East Lake Ave.Watsonville, CA 95076. I say "currently" because you never know...
Race 1 will be held the same day as the big USAC CX National Championships in Providence, RI. In a sense, we'll be holding our own "Non-profit Natz" the same day. (SCCCC has official 501(c)3 non-profit status)
Race 2 will also play host to the "2007 Santa Cruz County Cyclocross Championships," a fun thing we've come up with to award a special prize to the highest-placed Santa Cruz County resident in each category. That's right, the SC County CX Champs, aka "SCCCC put on by SCCCC."
Race 3 will be held the same day as the giant cyclocross World Championships in Hooglede-Gits, Belgium. So what have we come up with? You guessed it, the Non-profit WORLDS...
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Just for the mud of it,
Peak Season Race Director
