New Old Fashioned Cyclocross Series Race on 10/15! See below. It is on as scheduled.
Also TNCX results at bottom of page.
Tuesday CX Series InfoAt all the TNCXs, we will see to it that we always have a B course that is suitable for very beginner/younger jr CX riders. The course may divide and come back together to accommodate this.
Entry fee for the Tusaday CXs will be $12 per race, 18 & under free. Singlespeeds $8* The New Mexico Old Fashioned Series will be insured through bikeraces.org. USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. I have a Square reader now so you can pay with a credit card at the race.
10/3 Hays Apple Farm 6PM preride at 5:45PM
10/10 Hays Apple Farm 5:45PM preride at 5:30PM
Hays Directions: Take I-25 South from Albuquerque to the NM47/ Broadway Exit (215). (There is some construction at Rio Bravo, but it clears up after that.) After the exit, go south 7 miles to Bosque Farms. Do not speed through the reservation near the casinos, there are almost always cops there. Turn Right on Esperanza at the Blake's Lottaburger. Go west (right) 1/4 mile to the farm.
Course winds through the trees of Mr Hays' apple orchard and goes up onto the ditchroad for some fast bits. The cottonwoods should be turning yellow to add a nice backdrop. We may be dodging some fallen apples as Mr. Hays is expecting a good harvest this year.
If you want apples or honey (both are luscious) get there before the shop closes at 5PM. Apples are usually about $1.50/lb. I will have some samples.
10/17 Sunnislope 5:45PM preride at 5:30PM
10/24 Sunnislope 5:30PM preride at 5:15PM
11/1 Sunnislope 5:30PM preride at 5:15PM (Wednesday because Tuesday is Haloween)
In a car: Exit I-25 on Rio Bravo and go west about a mile to 2nd. Take 2nd south about 1.6 miles to to Sunnyslope St. then go west (right) to Barr then go south (left) 300ft and park where you can without blocking anyone's driveway.
On a bike: take the bosque bike path south past Rio Bravo until just before it curves east following the diversion channel. Start will be up on the levee about 400ft north of the diversion channel.
Courses will be on gravel roads, dirt roads and trails, with a little ungroomed grass.

*Why the blazes are singlespeeds cheaper? This encourages the alleycat folks to come out. Most of them are young and kind of tight on $$.
Upcoming Weekend Races
Most of the weekend events will have higher entry fees becasue they are logictically harder to organize. The NM Old Fashioned Cyclocross series is a series of more old fahioned style CX races, some of which are part of the NMCX series. The Old Fashioined series is not a points series in itself but the NMCX races count for points in that series.
