2022 Cross Infestation returns to Coyote Point, with Clara Honsinger, free races for beginners and food trucks
2022 Cross Infestation will close out the five-race, six-day Bay Area Super Prestige series. The event is moving from last year’s Lake Stafford Park to Coyote Point Park in San Mateo.
Coyote Point Park, one of NorCal’s top cyclocross courses, returns this December 4th. Home to dozens of thrilling races over the decades, this year’s Bike Law Cross-Infestation, presented by the Roaring Mouse team, is set to raise the standard even higher.
Cash prizes of at least $1,000 are expected to attract top talent to the race, as is the announcement that current national champion Clara Honsinger will be starting to prepare for the national championships.
Honsinger adds his name to a list of cyclocross stars who have traveled to race at the venue, including Thomas Frischknecht, Ryan Trebon and Todd Wells.
Located on a rocky headland in San Francisco Bay, the race features two steep climbing challenges on each turn, as well as a scenic but painful beach run. There are long sections of grass and woods, as well as long straights on the sidewalk. Since recent upgrades to the park, there are more spectator options than ever, with clear sight lines and plenty of spots to visit during the race.
