In addition to SuperPro & BASP Cyclocross races, we will also be throwing Thursday Night CX Training Races at Point Molate in Richmond, CA. Starting September 21st or 28th and running through October 12th.

We’re running these based on Frank Shoemaker’s Rodeo Cross model. There will be two heats a night. One starting about 6:00pm for 40 minutes and then right after that at 6:45 we start the second heat that runs 50 minutes. Scoring is top ten only (at least accurate scoring). You’ll see your finish order no matter what but exact timing will reflect the pointy end only. No prizes except fitness.
These are permitted and insured and we’ll have EMTs onsite. These are grassroots level and are less focused on the technical aspects of things like barriers and obstacles and more focused on giving you a venue and opportunity to race yourself into shape for the actual season. The lap is 3.9 miles and 360 feet of vertical per lap. It’s a mix of paved service roads and some broken pavement and gravely/dirt bits. Lap times will be fast because there’s no grass. The views of the bay, Mt Tam and the Richmond Bridge are pretty stunning to boot.
The venue is super close to everywhere, relatively speaking. We’ve got a nice big parking lot, we’ll have port-a-johns on site and we’re aiming to keep the entry fee as low as we can, probably ~$25. No food or beverage sales onsite.

This is the tentative course now: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/24203230

Important note: The course will only be open during the event times and there is 24/7 security there that will chase you away if you try to come any other time because it’s next door to the Chevron tank farm. Also there’s locked gates that have to be opened in five places to make the course actually rideable.
