CycloCross is Coming to Moreno Valley

Moreno Valley, CA-The City of Moreno Valley will host its first CycloCross race as Southern California CycloCross closes out its season with a final race on a 1.8 mile custom built course on March Air Reserve Base January 15.

CycloCross combines road racing and mountain biking while challenging riders with a course featuring everything from grass and sand to gravel and dirt mounds. Riders must also negotiate a number of obstacles that may force them to dismount, shoulder their bikes while they negotiate the obstruction and then remount their bikes to continuing riding.
