Hey all. I am a BC boy who was born in Ontario with americans as parents. All of my relatives live in the states, most being in California. My parents have told me I have dual citizenship, so border-crossings etc wont be a huge issue. I am thinking of living in California for the summer.
So my question is where to live in Cali. My most feasible option is with Grandma and Grandpa in Santa Cruz. The other option is with my cousins in San Diego. I know SC is great for riding, but dont know as much about San Diego. I ride and race XC, this being my first season. I will grad high-school in June and be 18 in July, and will be wanting a job to support my riding (as I don't think Grandma/Grandpa will be shelling out any money.. )
Hopefully there is something like a weekend race series or two in the area? (either San Diego or SC). I would be riding and training every day, as well as some part-time(possibly fulltime) work. The two biggest breaks in my schedule are: Between a BC Cup and Nationals (the latter is only 4 or so hours from my house, so I will be there as a racer or a spectator, but i will BE there! ) which is June 28-July 15, and the second break is between said Nationals and another BC Cup, between July 17 and August 5th.
Sorry if this is too mountainous(HORRIBLE pun) of a task, but this would really help, because other than BC (and Canada) Cups, there is NO XC racing scene in BC. As in like 8-10 events for the whole year. So a race every weekend or twice a week while in Cali would definately help my racing abilities grow. Hope you all are having a great weekend.
