Sacramento Cyclocross series starts this weekend.


Sacramento, my cx alma mater, is having their first cyclocross race this weekend. The series kicks off with the Folsom Rodeo. I did it last year, and found it to be pretty challenging, that is until my wheels flatted. There were a lot of flats there last year. I wouldn't show up unless you're running rim strips or Tufo Slime in your wheels.

It is tough to keep air in your tires. I flatted twice in my 45 minute race last year.
