Thanks for the insight. I live in Long Beach, work in El Segundo. Would love to get some experience prior to racing! The SoCal Cross website is very dated so hard to figure out how to get plugged-in. :(
More action on the SoCal Cross Facebook page. I'd imagine some people might do some training at ElDo. We usually have a race or two there a season. (Though not on this year's tentative schedule.)
Velo Allegro is a team from that area with good numbers at the races, check with them for training groups.
The promoter is a bit on the ragtag side with race venues. We sometimes don't know until week of (like Tuesday or Wednesday) where this weekend's race will be.
Saw her last night at a CX practice and her schedule is still really fluid. Most of the dates can be counted on, locations - not so much.
Only a few of the races will require a USAC license, most will have no license requirement.
Let me know if you have any more ?'s about our local scene.
