long time ago, before gravel bikes or mountain bikes, when the weather
got chilly, bike racers would ride whatever bike they had through the
woods, across the fields and down little dirt lanes. Sometimes there
would be steep hills or fallen logs where they would have to get off
their bikes and carry them. And, since they were bike racers, they
started setting up little loops and racing around them. It was fun.
This was the beginning of cyclocross.
I feel that the UCI with all their rules (even if they be well meaning)
have kind of lost contact with this aesthetic. This series attempts to
preserve this "old fashioned" cyclocross aesthetic of just riding
through whatever happens to be out there.
So what should I expect to be different VS a normal modern
I will try to design courses that favor cyclocross bikes over mountain
bikes or road bikes. Considerable sections of the courses will be
less than 3m wide, hurdles will more likely be a just a few logs
thrown across the trail, and there will probably be more running with
the bike than most CX races. You can ride any type of bike or tires you
think best for the course. This year all the races will have one
combined start and race for about 1hr, this is also kind of old school
None of the races are USAC so you do not need a license, but there are
no official USAC upgrade or ranking points earned.
Be sure you have sealant, for Hubble especially. It has been a bumper
Cyclocross racing aside, the three venues we have this year are really
pretty spots, good examples of the beauty that the New Mexico Outdoors
has to offer. (OK there is some graffiti at Hubble, but there is also
a nice view, a meadow, and a little cottonwood forest,)
I hope you can make it out, and that you think it's fun.
Note that there will be a
minimum of about 15 riders signed up for this event by midnight the Thursday before each Saturday and Friday before the Sunday race.
So if you want to come, and you want the race to happen,
please sign up at the link below.
Take I-25 South from Albuquerque to the NM47/ Broadway Exit (215).
After the exit, go south 7 miles to Bosque Farms. Do not speed through
the reservation, particularly near and just south of the casinos, there
are almost always rez 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. One of the
most scenic courses we have. Mud is possible.
Kids Race: if we get some
younger riders who would like to come out, we will accommodate them
a shorter course and shorter race duration. If you have kids who
would like to race please have them sign up and we can assess how many
fee $25. Cash preferred, but you can pay
online or I have a card reader. Juniors (under 18 on race day) free.
Prizes: We may have some
small prizes for the top mens and womens
finishers, possibly also juniors if we get a good number of them.
