    Surf City Cyclo-X holds its third and final races of the season, this coming Sunday, at the Watsonville Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. The event is also a special fundraiser for local cyclocrosser Tobin Ortenblad (California Giant/Specialized).

    Ortenblad is selected to join the USA Cycling Euro Cross Camp and Surf City’s fund raiser aims to cover his family’s $1,000 share-of-costs. Sheila Moon Apparel, Giro, and Unicorn’s Creations Custom Baked Goods provide the raffle prizes. Tickets are on sale now through Bikereg.com as well as at the final Surf City Cyclo-X event.

    The youngster produced some good results locally this season including a win ahead of Scott Chapin (Bicycle Bluebook/HRS/Rock Lobster) and Walton Brush (MashSF) in October. He also took the top step of the podium, ahead of both Ben and Andy Jacques-Maynes, at the November running of Surf City Cyclo-X. This adds to his Junior 17-18 second place at USAC Cyclo-Cross National Championships last January.

    Ortenblad has been racing extremely well this season
