Homegrown CX Update

Races #4 and #5 of the Homegrown Cyclocross Series at Woodward Park in Fresno are coming up. The next race is December 7th followed by the series final on the 14th, . This is the first year that the local MTB club (CCORC has run this event and they place an emphasis on a low-key atmosphere that is very “newbie” friendly. In the spirit of keeping cyclocross accessible, entry fees are low, $15 for adults and $8 for juniors and the kid’s race is free.

The course is all dirt, very swoopy and all rideable except for the obligatory section of barriers and one run-up, which with just the right line, can be ridden. There’s ample parking and the park is just off highway 41.

If you are looking to try ‘cross for the first time or just looking for a mellow race, and can’t make the drive to all of the great racing on the coast, come on by.
