The end of November – SURELY by this time we’ve had some rain and it will be a wet and soft finale to the Candlestick Cup Series. How different the ‘Stick is when it’s had a proper dumping of rain, look at this section of the course in late December, a little different, no?
The finale at the ‘Stick also means a variety of new, never used course features to throw at you. We hope this is going to be our sloppiest event of the year!

Cyclocross racers in Northern California have selected their own race categories for decades before USA Cycling discovered the phenomena a few years ago. We still encourage riders to discover for themselves their best fit for competition. Is your first choice too slow? too fast? Too young? Too old? Go ahead and change whenever you want. For those of you looking for more direction, our corresponding categories with USAC are:
Beginner – Cat. “C” – USAC Cat. 4
Intermediate – Cat. “B” – USAC Cat. 3
Advanced – Cat “A” – USAC Cat. 1/2
