*we will only have a kids race if we get riders signed up for it, so if you are interested please sign up your kiddos. 

Note: I lowering the entry fee from $30 to $20, but I am going to mark the course a little less thoroughly than in years past. I would strongly recommend that you be there for the preride. We will do 2 neutral laps. 

About the Old Fashioned CX Series. 

A 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 around through whatever happens to be out there.  

So what should I expect to be different VS a normal modern cyclocross race?

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 cyclocross.   

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 fresh sealant, for Hubble especially. It has been a bumper goathead year.

I hope you can make it out, and that you think it's fun.

Note that there will be a minimum of about 10 riders signed up by:
Midnight the Thursday 1/18 for the 1/20 race
Midnight Friday 1/26 for the 1/28 race.

Google placemark here.
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: 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 with 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 we have. We will not set up a kids race unless you sign them up beforehand. 

Entry: Entry fee $20. Cash preferred, but you can pay online by just PayPal at yourstruly@fastmail.com and send "Friends and Family" which saves me fees. Also I will have a card reader at the race. Rides 13-23 years old $10, 12yrs and younger 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.

BCD Racing Course Marking Conventions

Red and green pinflags will always be red-right and green-left. These will mark either side of the course. Always go between them with red on the right. If you start seeing green-right you are probably riding the course backwards. I will occasionally place red and green pinflags on either side of the course if it has been a while since there has been any trail marking. These may not be near any intersection. This is just to let you know that you are still on course.

Orange pinflags show where not to go, and are usually in lines of 3 or more. They will be used to block off a trail that is not on course. Do not go in between orange pinflags. Sometimes lines of course tape also show where not to go. Lines of tape and orange pinflags mean the same thing: Do not cross. 

Intersections will be marked with triangular yellow arrows. Also, just beyond the intersection, I will try to put up at least one set of red and green markers either side of the course. Sometimes there will also be orange pinflags blocking entrances to  roads/trails not on course. 

Always default to the more trafficked trail or road. If you are on a major trail or road, stay on it, and do not get off on any smaller intersecting trails/roads. It is not always possible to mark every possible little trail intersecting a main trail or road. If the course DOES get off a more trafficked road/trail onto a less trafficked road/trail, there will always be some marking indicating this. 

Then National Champion J-Pow at Hays a few years back.
