Tom Simpson and Pilarcitos received confirmation today that the 2014-2015 USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Calendar will make a stop in San Francisco. The GP Clark Natwick runs on 21 September 2014 at Candlestick Point. Other events on the calendar are the Florida CX National in Dade City (31 August 2014), VeloCX in Blaine, MN (1 November 2014), and Ruts ‘N Guts in Tulsa, OK (6-7 December 2014).
Last December, Tom Simpson revealed to NorCal Cycling News an effort was underway at returning UCI Cyclocross to the Bay Area.
A plan for moving the Sierra Point Night Race to follow ‘Cross Vegas, and entice top international racers, fell through. With today’s announcement, Simpson and Pilarcitos are back on track and have a stepping-stone to qualify for a UCI race in 2015.
Tom Simpson said the Candlestick Point venue is in part because of difficulty in running at Sierra Point in September, a heavy boating month on the Bay.
