Shasta Cyclocross Oct. 25

David Marchi and the Mt. Shasta Nordic Center will be hosting a Cyclocross race along with many other fun cycling activities on the weekend of Oct. 24-25 near Mt Shasta. Some of the cool stuff lined up for Sat. will be a downhill bike rally from Bunny Flat on the slopes of Mt. Shasta down into town, then a bike party at the City Park with Bunny hop contest and skid contest. The following day will be a costume Cyclocross race in Shastice Park. This event will draw riders from Oregon as well as California, and all proceeds will be directed to benefit the Mt. Shasta Nordic Center.

David Marchi promises a good time!!

This really looks like a rad event for all cyclists who attend!

Mt Shasta is a cycling wonderland and really beautiful in late October. Come up and enjoy some real fall weather...

The Bunny Flat to Mt Shasta City downhill is a singletrack descent built and maintained by a bunch of low posters (and older guys/ high posters). It plummets 3500 feet in about 8 or 9 miles and will be in prime condition after this weeks rains (4 plus inches).

The Shastice Park race course on Sunday will be designed by Mt Shastas' home grown cycling stars Sean Doyle and David Marchi and will feature grass sections, pavement and some fun singletrack.

If you are scared of the big downhill on Saturday (and would rather get in a double race weekend) then you can venture up the road 30 minutes to Yreka and take part in the season opener of the Southern Oregon Outlaw Cyclocross Series. This race will take place in Greenhorn Park, site of the start/ finish of the old Humbug Hurryup MTB race. This anual series has been having their opening weekend in Yreka to bring the cycling coomunities of Southern Oregon and far Northern California together. Put together as a benefit in the memory of Nick Jensen for the Josephine County Search & Rescue by Nick's Mom this is one of the best series around. Fun and supportive grass roots cross racing with one amazing raffle at the end of the season. I always make it to one of these races every year. The boys from Ashland/Medford & Redding/Mt Shasta ride fast...

Last but not least, the Mt Shasta event is a benefit for the Mt Shasta Nordic Center, a non profit cross country ski area devoted to getting people of all ages out on the snow. This worthy organization supports young and old alike and could really use your support. If you can not make it up to the bike rally please come up this winter and enjoy the snow on the slopes of Mt Shasta.
