    the race is this sunday, its in toro park, its right by laguna seca, its an awesome little race series that they made

    http://www.cccx.org/dh/2006/index.shtml

    RACE # 5 2006 CCCX DH SERIES FINAL- The course has been selected and the route will be a mixture of races #1 and #3, with some new sections added to challenge NorCal's DH racers. This final event of the series will determine who are the Division Champions as all races count toward the final point total.

    Directly following the race, CCCX medals will be presented for the race itself, and then the final CCCX Series awards. Most groups will have series awards to the top 5 point totals, and our largest group the 14-16 year old racers will receive series awards to the top 10 in the division. These divisions will receive series awards to the top three due to overall field sizes- Single-Speed, Expert Women, Sport Men 35-44, Beg. Men 35-44.

    This event will take place rain or shine. Toro Park gates will open at 8:00 a.m. on race day. Please note that the park closes at 4 p.m. on Saturday.

    Awards- Series Champions will receive a custom Hot Shoppe DH Winners Jersey, the custom made CCCX Series plaques are the highest quality available and are 16X19 in size, 2006 CCCX DH T-shirts, and other prizes from sponsors will be presented to top finishers in the series.

    The CCCX Series would like to thank its sponsors who make a strong effort to support Downhill Racing in Northern California: Fox Racing Shox, Monster Energy, WTB, Ritchey, Hot Shoppe Design Factory, Cal Giant Inc., The Vitamin Shoppe, Calabazas Cyclery, Castro Valley Cyclery, Trail Head Cycles, Family Cycling Center, Scotts Valley Cycle Sport, Joselyns, Pegasus Bicycle Works. Montara Heim Components.

    Race Day Info:

    Registration and Practice Opens at 8:00 am.
    Registration Closes at 11:00 am.
    Practice Closes at 11:45 am.
    Timed Run Starts at 12:00 noon.

    Anyone who practices must have a race #.

    Course is closed for all non racers on race day.

    Upon registration racers will choose their starting time- first come first serve basis.

    Racers who miss assigned start time must wait until the end of session for start- or take unclaimed start position.

    Awards 30 minutes after final run.

    Practice Schedule- Race day practice is from 8:00 am to 11:45 am. First time trial run is 12 noon. This is a time trial format. One rider will be sent on course at a time, time gaps will be 1 minute between starts. It takes approximately 30-35 minutes to hike to the start. Be sure and allow enough time when leaving parking/registration area to make it to the start and your selected start time. You should head to the start 40 minutes before your scheduled start time just to allow enough time. The hike to the top is steep in some sections!

    There will be registration and course inspection on Saturday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The course will not be fully marked until this time(2:00 p.m.). Riders must follow all park rules when inspecting the course on Saturday before the Sunday race. Toro Park bicycle speed limits are in effect and riders must control speed and share trails with other park users. The trails are not closed for Saturday to other park users, so riders must control speed and ride at park speed limit 15 miles per hour, and riders must share trails with other park users. Sunday practice is on closed trails just for race participants.

    Also for future races, the starter will call out names and times of the starting order! So the start time you sign up for at registration will be used at the start, and your name and # will be called 5 minutes before your scheduled time to get racers in proper starting order. If there are course holds, your start time could reflect this, but the starting order will be the same. Hopefully calling out the starting order will help keep riders from racing out of turn, and waiting at the top to a smaller time frame. There should not be a long line of racers waiting to start, just a group of racers waiting for their chosen start time to arrive. So please be at the start and ready to run before your scheduled start time. If you miss your start time, see the starter and he will try and fit you in as soon as possible. Odds are that the start times will be a few minutes behind your exact starting time requested, but the order will be the same. If you feel a much slower rider is in front of you, please tell the starter and take a 2 minute gap between starts. If any rider catches you during your run, please pull over when alerted and let the faster rider pass as quickly as possible.

    All races count toward the overall series championship. Bring your race # from your first event at this series please.

    Awards- CCCX Medals to top finishers in each group. Cash $$$ paid to fastest 3 times of the day!-Any Division.

    Series Awards- CCCX Series Plaques For Top 5 In Each Division.

    All information subject to change- check web site regularly for updated information.

    This is a non NORBA race, yet NORBA rules apply. Entry fee includes one day insurance.

    I'll be there. Still holding on to 1st place in my division 35-45 Beginner. It's a small class, and I've made every race so far, but there a few guys who have beat me before, that'll definitely give me a run for the money!

    I'll be there to take my 2nd place in the series... good racing.... if only I didn't space race #3

    all you gotta do is show up and don't crash out and your #1- I can't make enough pts to take series champ.

    I'm upping to sport class next year and plan on hitting other Super D type races accross the state.

    Congrats and see you Sunday!
    Earn your turns. )'(

    Yo, I think I'm going to check it out This will be the maiden race for my Marin Quake. Sounds like the course has some fast fireroads; would it be wise to bump up my 32T chainring to a 36?
    I'll be on an ano black Marin(duh) and most like be wearing red/back Marzocchi MX shorts.

    Might be a little bit too big. There,s one steep climb that you might have jump off your bike and run up on. With the 32T ring you'll be fine. If your good at the cycle cross thing, running with your bike, the use the bigger ring.

    What courses does this combine? Is it the uphill after the downhill, and a right turn into it, with sand at the base?

    yes it is that climb you are thinking of, and you can carry a ton of speed into the climb(for the people who dont know). i would run a 36, instead of a 32, because of all the downhill on fireroads. i use a 38 and its possible to get up all the hills pretty fast.

    Well I had alot of fun, Finish time was 4:54 which is eh....ok to say the best, kinda played it conservative at the end because I took a digger on the second to last turn on my pratice run other than that it was a blast kinda slick in some parts but I thought that made it better, Howd everyone else do?

    4:39. You were right Spez One; the 36 would have been killer! The 32 was way too low. I mostly had to coast the fireroads I somehow shifted my chain onto my bash guard on the Singletrack before the drop turn so I ended up pedaling air until I got the chain back on the ring just before the bottom of the uphill . My mistake for not double checking my F Der limit screws. That sh*t was adjusted first thing when I got to the truck.
    I'm stoked that I got down there-it was my first DH race! I'm definitely making it out to more next year. The CCCX guys put on a great event.

    ya that was funny, but 4:39 for ur first race, messed up chain, is perrty damn good if i so. the fire roads were awesome, bunny hopping over the ruts made it really intreseting, and who ever was up at the top around 12:30. the topic that was being discussed was hilarious.
