    New question here. Whats up with CCCX MTB final??

    A lot of people have raced the mountain bike series races and still there is no posted date for the final that was supposed to happen in July. Not fair to the riders that have supported the cccx. Now they go on to hosting cx races.

    I dont buy that. Keith has run 2 cyclocross races this month at Ft. Ord and will have a cx race this weekend at Manzanita.

    That's fine. I'm not selling you anything.

    Why don't you ask him then? I don't think you'll get an "official" answer from anyone other than the organizer.

    Cyclocross courses are much smaller. CX #3 was supposed to be at Fort Ord, and was moved.

    CX #3 was always scheduled for Manzanita.

    Keith is probably the only person that can answer that question but at this point I'd be a little surprised if they do actually host that series finale. Looking at some of the race results it appears that the turnouts this year have been historically low for their XC races. A lot of categories that only have one or two riders showing up. CX is much more prosperous and easier to host.

    I believe his email is posted on CCCXCYCLING.COM or you could reach out to him on Facebook.

    Please update us if you get an answer.

    I never understood my more people didn't race the CCCX XC races. I know understand why many people are choosing to take their racing to other areas. I know people that schedule their vacation around the CCCX XC race series. They are very disappointed in supporting CCCX and having the series finally postponed 3 days before the event, TWICE.

    CA Dirt Series https://ybonc.org/events/dirt-classic/ does an outstanding job with their 5 race series. The first race in the series is Sea Otter.

    Total Body Fitness at Folsom Lake has their 2020 race schedule up. I wish there was some XC races around the East Bay, at least one a year would be nice.

    I did a couple seasons of CCCX and it was well run. Always had a good vibe, but the fields were not that big and the time commitment was almost a full day away from the family.
    I wish there was a series in the east bay too.
    Making shit harder than it needs to be isn't awesome, it's just...harder.

    Hmm, I have it on my calendar as Ft. Ord. I could've sworn the first 3 were at Ord this year.

    For sure, but the turnout isn't all that great, still. Less than 10 in most categories, and the women's filed is usually smaller, and even only 1 or 0. What's interesting is you get lots of Master's A. Cardio geezers.

    I think the one thing that helps the CX series is that people chase points for nationals.
