It’s a chockfull of racing in the NorCal this weekend ~
Up in the Bay, there’s the Brisbane weekend. It’s a weekend for those who like to go around in circles, that’s for sure. Fast courses, fast fields … always aggressive, but tactical races.
Down in the central valley will be the exclamation points to the spring series of races down there. The city of Hanford (and Sentinel paper) tosses down a bunch of cash at bike riders for their seasonal downtown criterium. It’s a great way end a string of races in a part of the state that puts a ton of energy into promoting top-notch bike events.
Saturday we all use the Orosi Road Race as prep for the crits … and just to take a gorgeous trip around the Sierra foothills. For any who haven’t done Orosi, you’re missing one of the most beautific courses on the NorCal circuit. It climbs and rolls and drops down so fast you’ll wish you were buckled in. Orosi has one of the fastest, safest, most butt-puckering descents in the US. holeee sheet, you can rail that drop like an H-bomb.
The NorCalCyclingNews gossip-wagon will be in effect at Orosi and Hanford and be sure to throw a couple heckles out if you’re in the neighborhood. I’ll be doing a shake down off the Women’s event at Hanford … since there’s a nice fat $2K prize list (+ primes) for them … and then i’ll try and get better than ass-last in the break like i did last year in the prosey event.
see you out there and say ‘hey’ if you do,
