It's Back! Surf City Cyclocross Series!
The ever popular Surf City Cyclocross Series is back in 2005! Running since 1975, Velo Bella is picking up the reigns to keep the longest running cyclocross series in the U.S. running! We couldn't let a series responsible for launching the careers of Clark Natwick, Don Myrah and Shari Kain and others fizzle out. So lets honor the tradition and come on out to celebrate Surf City's 30th anniversary.
All of the features about Surf City that you love will be back. Surf City veteran, Jeff Clark will be on hand to help with course design and race logistics. Tom Simonson and his crew will be on hand to deliver the fastest results in the West. The “Oh-so-Tough” Aptos High, the “oh-so-flowey” Soquel High, and the ever-versatile Watsonville Fairgrounds are also back as race venues. Long time sponsors such as Bontrager, Ritchey, Bicycle Trip and others are offering amazing series prizes. We are pleased to offer a total of $13,000 in cash and prizes for the series!!
And that's not all that's hot. Surf City #3 was designated as the UCI Cat 1 CrankBrothers US Gran Prix of Cyclocross #5 in a series of six. The action will be hotter then ever, drawing racers from all over the country and the world as they compete in this series for a spot on the world championship team.
And since Velo Bella is promoting the series, you can already imagine the goodies in store for racers and spectators. Expect the usual Bella-flair with the added delight of Tiki-themes, Hawaiian leis and special edition jerseys for sale by Hincapie Sports. Expect a Surf-tacular good time! So come on out for all three events to race, cheer and get lei'd!
