    Fontana XC race

    Greetings,

    I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend.
    I am going to enter the July 17th XC race in Fontana California as a beginner and was wondering if anyone had info on what to expect? Mostly course conditions, temperature this time of year, all up hill? I dont even know the course length so any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again for all the help

    Course is 9mi long with three medium climbs.
    The temp at mid day is high 90's to 105. There are few shady spots (none) on the course.
    Smog can be a issue as well.

    Hey I just did the race today and it was pretty fun! A little hot though.... Not a lot of people showed up probably cuz of the heat. Anyawys, I had a fun time at the race except the ST was pretty loose and some spots I felt like falling off the edge. I raced beg men 15-18 and placed fouth (out of 5 )

    Did you happen to go out there?
