We started our Cyclocross events here in 2002 and since then have raced at Coyote Point almost a dozen times. This is the home of the Beach Run and so much more. This has been a UCI event in 2003/04/05 and has seen Ryan Trebon, Travis Brown, Tim Johnson and the undefeated 3-time CCCP Champ Thomas Frischknecht playing in the sand.
This is our longest course of the season and mixes amost everything in terms of surface. We've got eucalyptus forest paths, sandy/gravelly beach, several good stretches of pavement for a break in rhythm - and weeds, lots of weeds to dig up. It's not a flat course - the eucalyptus forest in the eastern portion especially has a significant elevation gain. Everythoing in the west is pancake flat - so that's where one of our TRP Brake Zones will be located.
This course also has a separate Start Zone - look for the Start Blades near the Rifle Range parking lot. You'll start on pavement for 300 yards to deliver you into the eucalyptus forest and then it's into the beach. And the Figure 8 will return for this course.

A Note about Numeric Categories - Here at the Bay Area Super Prestige Series we don't feel that it is in the best spirit to hold people to a numeric category. We will maintain our system of riders self categorizing. If you need to compare it to the USAC numeric system, It would be C=4 B= 3, and A= 1/2
