Overall Series Notes

12/6 is on as scheduled if we get enough signups. The cyclocross will be at noon. There will also be an ITT option at 1:10 which will be scored with the cyclocross race based on time, and a cross country run at 2:30.  Scroll down for more info.  

There will be a 10 rider minimum for each race. Please sign up by midnight the Friday before each race. If you wish to make an online donation please do so on Saturday or Sunday, after we know there are enough riders. If we do not get about 10 signed up for any race we will cancel. We have a 6 person minimum for the run. 

If you can't sign up by Friday midnight you can still race and there is no late fee, just show up.

Unless something changes we are going to have to race in masks, at least most of the time. Full COVID protocols at bottom of the page. 

We will do points for men and women overall for the top 5 with 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 points awarded respectively. 

I am going to have to miss one of these weekends for a work commitment. probably in late October/early November. I do not have a specific date for this yet, so I do not know which one, but I would like to give a heads up that one of these dates will probably get rescheduled. 

If you are going to race cyclocross in NM or really anywhere in the southwest, you should invest in some 38-40mm tires. (I have been running a 45 on the front sometimes) It is a dry climate and at least a little sand and rocks are kind of inevitable. If you run tubulars look for some 34mm tires, which are probably worth a almost 38mm clincher as you can run them softer and they are more supple.

The Schedule (note changes):
10/4 Oak Flat #1, Tijeras, NM
10/11 Oak Flat #2 Tijeras, NM
10/18 Double Cross, Belen, NM
10/25 no race
11/1 Sunnyslope CX
11/8 Sunnyslope CX
11/15 Sunnyslope CX
11/22 no race
11/28 no race
12/6 Peralta CX
12/13 Atrisco CX

OK this is from the Belen course but is is pretty similar looking. 

Peralta CX 12/6, Cyclocross at noon, Cyclocross ITT at 1:10 and XC run at 2:30

Will be mostly flat with a fair bit of singletrack trail. A bit twistier than Sunnyslope. There will be a little sand. It is a pretty area.

Cross Country Run:
I figure that since I have the course marked anyway some folks in the area might like to do it as an XC run. I will time everyone. Run will be one lap for about 5k. This is a new thing to me so if you want it to happen, be sure and sign up by Friday midnight.
If you are not familiar witrh cyclocross, the course will be a mix of trail and dirt roads, with a few logs to make the cyclists get off their bikes and run. The logs will not be over 14in high.        

Take I-25 South from Albuquerque to the NM47/ Broadway Exit (215). After the exit, go south about 8 miles through Bosque Farms to Peralta. Do not speed through the reservation, especially near the casinos, there are almost always rez cops there. Also there is some construction north of Bosque Farms. Look for the Peralta Memorial Methodist Church sign. Turn Right on Wesley Rd, then right on Sunflower, then take your first left. This will still be Sunflower. Go through the chicane, cross one ditch and turn right onto the far side of the second one. Park left side only and leave space for a car to get by on your right. Only park there. I will have a sign up. I feel like parking anywhere else in the area might upset the residents as the road is really narrow. 
Once you park take the ditchorad SW until it ends through a gate and then go left to the start. It is about 1/2 mile from parking to the start. With the bridge construction in Los Lunas it is a little harder to access this area.

12/13/20 Atrisco Cross (north of Central on the west side of the River.)

We have not done this course in years, but it is pretty cool, with a massive sandy runup going up the enscarpmant west of the river.

General info:
This is not a USAC race but will be held under USAC cyclocross race rules, except that we will allow feeding anywhere on the course. We may have some small prizes. No USAC license necessary.

We will run these rain or shine, but promoter reserves the right to cancel or move the course in the event of severe inclement weather or other issues. If weather looks dodgy, I will post what we are doing to the Hawke Races FB page. 

This is the tentative COVID specific plan for the CX season revised 10/15/20:

1. Do not gather in groups of more than 5 at any point.

2. Start in small waves of no more than 5 riders. Waves will be about 75ft apart.  In the very unlikely event that riders catching from a later wave catch riders from an earlier wave and the the combined number of these riders coming together makes over five riders, we ask that they keep their groups separate, so that at no time do we have a group of over five riders together.   

3.  Start wave assignments will be based on series points or past finishing positions. Start wave assignments going to be posted Saturday evening. I will post signs for each wave to line up.

4. All riders must start in masks.  I have no way of controling what riders do while they are out alone in the woods. but riders should be advised that the state has mandated that masks be worn at all times outside of the home. If riders remove their masks they are at risk of fines by the state. 

5. I will work on should try to designing courses with minimal zigzaging so that riders do not pass by other riders in two-way sections. I will make the zigzags nice and wide where they are used.  I will also try to put difficult sections earlier in the course than normal, to break the riders up sooner. This is not normal CX course design.

6. Riders should wear masks when interacting with other riders or the promoters before or after the race.

7. Obviously if you feel sick or have any COVID symptoms, or feel that you may have been exposed to someone sick, stay home for a week or two.

8. No awards ceremony. I will post results to this site hopefully the next day. We might do some small prizes which I will hand out afterwards.

9. Signup online if at all possible. If you have to sign up a the race, wear a mask.
