Visit - goneriding.com check out the Florida XC series (FSC)  series starts in about 2 - 3 months and runs through December.  Lots of fun....and it's racing too...

North and south Florida. Different times of the year with some combined races counting as points for both

Another difference is the CC courses generally repeat the same courses in the Miami area, the FSC series is all over Florida and will expose you to all the awesome trail systems we have over a lot of different terrain from beach side trails to the technical man made stuff in at Markham.


Also - as a general rule - the FSC racer bois are a little friendlier than the CC racers....
