    The Surf City Series has been the longest running cyclocross series in
    the country. We are holding one race this year to keep the tradition
    alive, with hopes that we can work with others to bring the series back
    again next year.

    The race will be held at the famous Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in
    Watsonville CA, one of the most flexible venues around. You can expect all
    the high standards of Surf City racing: great course design, fast and
    accurate results, awesome prizes, with the added twist of Velo Bella
    fun: Costume contest, kid's race, live music and general mischief and
    mayhem.

    A clinic will be taught on Oct 30, 2004 at the fairgrounds site. The
    clinic fee is $15.

    Early registration is encouraged. No surcharge will apply for using
    Bikereg.com and pre-registrants will enjoy faster race day registration.

    USCF license is required. One day licenses are available.

    As part of our mission to encourage junior racing, all juniors will race
    free. The USCF surcharge will be paid for by race sponsorship.

    Prizes will generally be in merchandise but may also be in cash or some
    combination of the two. Trick or Treat!!

    Proceeds from the race will be used to help send our Cyclocross Elite
    team to UCI events and Nationals. Represent! Thank you for your support!

    A huge thank you to the sponsors who stepped up and offered their help
    to keep Surf City running:

    Chris King, GU, Kelly Bikes, Clif Bar, Il Fornaio, Jeremiah's Pick
    Coffee, Ritchey, Roudon Smith Winery, Soulcraft, Sheila Moon, Studio 5,
    Truvativ, WTB, Wild Dingo.com, Velo Bella and Roaring Mouse Cycles.

    And visit these fine shops who support Surf City:

    Valley Cyclesport and The Bicycle Trip.

    See you there, if you dare......muuwahhaahaaahaaaa

    Your race has been on my calendar since I first heard the rumor of it. Glad you didn't get the boot in favor of some equestrian event.

    Thanks for picking up the pieces and keeping the Spirit of Surf City alive and well.
