Surf City Cyclocross Series Returns with Clinics and Costumes This Weekend
America’s oldest cyclocross series returns to Santa Cruz County this weekend with the return of its famous Halloween festivities including costume cross, a free kid’s race, and of course candy for the kids on Sunday at Aptos High School.
On Saturday, racers can hone their skills and get some a course preview by attending a skills clinic led by some of the region’s best-known cyclocrossers at Sunday’s race venue.
Welcome to the Surf City Cyclocross Halloween Weekend, Aptos High School
Changes are in store for this year for the long-running cyclocross series, with promotion now led by Mary Perez, sanctioning now handled by USA Cycling, and a new course designer. 2000 U23 Cyclocross National Champion Ben Jacques-Maynes is designing the race course on the hilly Aptos High School campus.
