Race #7 in the Southern California Cyclocross Series will take place this Sunday, November 6th. at Hart Park in Bakersfield, CA. The race is hosted by the Kern Wheelmen Bicycle Club of Bakersfield.
This season's series has seen record turn outs and Hart Park should be no exception. "We're expecting 200 racers, that's our goal" says Sam Ames, Race Director. "All the other races in our series so far have had record fields and we hope to do the same." The 13 race SCCX Cup, as its known, started in September and concludes with the famous "Santa Cross" in December.

A blend of road, grass and dirt, the course features two running sections, lots of turns and technical challenges. The speed will be high as riders make their way around a very fun and professional style course. Spectator viewing is supreme and their will be music, food and hot racing action. The weather will be cool and clear, ideal for spectators, fans and families.
