Informal CX practice "races", set up by Ryan Travelstead of Nero Veloce and me.
9/5 Vietnam Vet Park. Clinic and maybe practice race info coming soon. Canceled
9/12 Deadman 6:15 PM preride at 6PM, shorter easier course.
9/19 Deadman 6:15 PM preride at 6PM, longer course in Deadman area with more running.
Deadman directions: Take I-40 east from Albuquerque to the Tijeras exit, the road will "Y" right off the exit. Go right. (Left takes you to Sandia Peak) The road will curve to the right and come to a stoplight. There will be a Subway across the street on your right. Go straight on through the light and up NM337 for about 8 miles. About 1/2 mile past Pine Flat Picnic area look for a small dirt road on the left. Park along the road or along 337 without blocking the gate and ride about 1/4 mile down the dirt road to the start. Beautiful area with grassy meadows and big ponderosa pine trees. Nice and cool up there too.
9/26 Pine Flat 6PM preride at 5:45PM, big loop between Pine Flat and Deadman
Pine Flat Directions: Same as above but only go about 7.5 miles up and look for the Pine Flat Picnic Area signs on your left.

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). Go south 7 miles to Bosque Farms. 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.

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. More detailed info will be posted soon.
