Course Description

  • VSRT, in collaboration with renowned course designer Dan English (Rock Lobster Cycles), has engineered a legit CX race course at this historic park. 

  • Dan most notably designed the 2019 VSRT cyclocross course at our Las Positas College Venue, where he transformed a “Hot Dusty Hellscape” to provide a great mix of:

    • technical features,

    • leg opening straightaways,

    • lung searing climbs,

    • Loose, dusty descents that Cyclocross Magazine compared to the hallowed grounds of “Zonhoven”, Belgium

    • and (most importantlymiles of smiles!!!

Course Description
  • We hope to have a course video on website before race day. In the meantime, expect dry, hard, packed dead grass, some gravel, twists and turns, just the right amount of elevation change including a legit run up, a challenging descent or two, a fast dirt road section and a soft soft rodeo arena. What more could you ask for?!


  • "Number pick up" at registration tent opens at 7:30 on race day.​

  • FREE Balance Bike / skills area for kids: open 8am - 2:30pm.
