June will be a quiet month for road racing with only 3 races listed on the calendar for NCNCA. These races will be the aggressive Dash 4 Cash criterium in Pleasanton followed by on the Sunday the Regalado Road race which will be the Masters District Championships. Then a couple of weeks after that will be the Pescadero Road Race which I think will be the Elite road championships.
Dash 4 Cash criterium in Pleasanton is on a nice flat course with 3 wide corners and a sweeping bend. Sprint primes of $10 are up for grabs for 10-20 laps depending on field size and a bonus $100 to whoever laps the field.
Regalado Road Race is held at Oakdale and is a race in memory of Jeremy Regalado who passed away in 2010. The course is a 17mile loop and can be very deceiving with rolling terrain making it a tough course. It used to have a 1mile gravel section but word is that it has been paved, apparently very poorly though and now is littered with potholes.
Pescadero Coastal Classic is a race I used to be Race Director of. A 28mile course through some of the most scenic places to have a bike race. A course with an elevation gain of 1500′ per lap, P12 is a 103mile race making it one of the longest races on the NCNCA calendar. This is a race for the climbers, although the climbs on Stage Rd and Haskins hill are not overly long, it is the rest of the undulating course that will take its toll on most riders as the laps go by.

4 – Dash 4 Cash
5 – Regalado Road Race, Masters District Championships
18 – Pescadero Coastal Classic, Elite District Championships
