SoCalCross Never Disappoints

This weekend we decided to attend one of our favorite cross races in Southern California, Corriganville in Simi Valley. It’s a park that is nestled just below some great singletrack in a valley that has a gully running down the middle. There is plenty of loose dirt and sand to keep you on your toes with some high-speed sections too. Jeff, the course designer, decided the barriers should be placed just after a fast and slightly sandy turn that leads to a steep incline. Overall the course was challenging and lots of fun, especially the gully that had a fun little hip.

Here are a few photos from the races and for more info or to sign up for an upcoming race head to SoCalCross.org.

 

This 180 turn around the tree was a toss-up whether it was faster to run or ride.

 

Oakleys very own Helmet Product Manager Chad McConnely was racing Mens Elite A.

 

The SoCalCross races are a family affair and it was evident with this sweet setup.

 

Alfred Pacheco is still the man to beat as he has gone undefeated in the series.

 

Race director Dorothy Wong finds the time to pin a number on and race the Single Speed category.

 

Brent Franze makes the soft corner around the tree look easy.

 

Lynn Marie Kennedy is always in attendance and we think she raced two races in a row, awesome!!
