Course info:
Course will be include some ungroomed grass through the lines of trees in the apple orchard, some ditchroads, and 1/2 mi of pavement. Expect a several runups and some twisty corners. Course will definitely favor cross bikes, and most of it will be wide and fast, but it will not strictly conform modern cyclocross standards, specifically: A. Some sections of the course will be narrower than 3M. B. Hurdles may be less than 4M apart and may be in singles or threes instead of pairs. Expect a little more running than most NMCX races. This is one of the most scenic CX courses we have in NM. There will likely be a few stray goatheads on the ditchroad. This time of year there will likely be some mud and maybe some snow. Paved section will be on an open, though quiet, road and the yellow line rule will be enforced. Kids course will be entirely within the apple farm. A map will be posted here later. The apple farm is private property and you cannot train in the applle farm without asking permission first. Note: Mr Hays has several bee hives. We do not go right through them, but if you are super allergic you might want to avoid this one.

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. We may use an outside overflow parking area, probably across from Blake's. Check this website for info.
