Jackson and Finchamp Victorious at SoCalCross Finale


The 2012-13 SoCalCross Prestige Series Finale was the final event of the SoCalCross Prestige Series, which consisted of 17 events in various venues since the end of September.

The  Finale was held at Pierce College in Woodland Hills and offered 50 percent bonus points, with the rider’s best nine scores in previous events in the Series going toward the final standings.

Hannah Rae Finchamp (Cynergy Cycles) and  Chris Jackson (Castex/Felt) both rode a strong final race to win the last event of the Series, with Finchamp and Brandon Gritters (Rock n’ Road) taking the Overall SoCalCross Prestige Series victory.

As the cross season winds down, SoCal’s cyclocross riders still have a few events left to compete in on the calendar. The Cyclocross National Championships will be held this weekend in Madison, WI.  In addition, the 3rd Annual NorCal VS. SoCal CX Championships, which will be held in Hart Park, Bakersfield,  will provide an exciting showdown between NorCal and SoCal cross riders on January  20. Go SoCal!
