Merry Crossmas / 16 Dec 2012
Marin Bikes is back with their neutral/demo bikes (Cortina Cross and CXR 29rs) & mechanical support. Like last time, they won't have neutral wheels, so BYOW.
Course change: Note that the course is at its rev 2 stage. Fewer twists and turns than the previous map, but one, possibly two add'l run ups.
Send Tobin to Camp! Tobin Ortenblad has been selected to participate in EuroCross Camp 2012. To help defray his expenses, we're hosting an online fundraising raffle as well as selling tickets race day.
Free Photos with Santa: Bring the kids out and have their picture taken with Santa! 10am to 12pm, limit 1 per family.
New for 2012: SCCX is operating under USAC permit (#2012-3819) - you must have a USAC license to race. One day licenses will be available at registration for an additional $10 fee, and full season licenses can also be purchased online via the USAC website. You must present your license at registration to avoid being charged the one-day license fee. Annual licenses bought after December 1st are good through the rest of 2012 and all of 2013.
Chip Timing: We're implementing a new and entirely homebrew RFID chip timing system this season. The software is written by a long-time 'crosser, Justin Eatinger, who is well aware of the need for sweating the details when it comes to tailoring a software system for scoring 'cross. As a result, we expect to have results and lap splits up on the results page on the evening of each race. The chips will mounted on the helmet and will will be used for the entire series. A $5 replacement free will apply for lost or damaged chips.
Make our registration staff's life easier by registering via BikeReg!
