Round 2 Bay Area Super Prestige Cyclocross series

Candlestick News

The 49’ers are taking a breather this weekend, leaving Candlestick Point State Recreation area open for Round 2 of the Bay Area Super Prestige Cyclocross Series, presented by Accelerade – and we intend to fill the parking spaces with ‘cross fans instead of grid iron fans.

Extended weather reports expect – sun, sun, and more sun. There will be no standing water on the course, except for the dusty locations of barricades and a couple downhills that last year raised a cloud of chaff. Our staff will be on hand with their orange 5-gallon thermos jugs to periodically throw a water layer onto the sand and keep that haze at bay.

And we’re adding our 2nd Ritchey Neutral Wheels tent to the course – 2 locations to stop for a spare and get back into the race. As always, riders can stash their own spare wheels and bikes anywhere on the course except inside the Start/Finish zone.

Just released on both Pilarcitos and Roaring Mouse websites are the 2006 Team results in the “Roaring Mouse Team Competie” and with a Round 1 lead – it’s HRS/Rocklobster with a 1 point margin over the Sycip gang. Check here for the news: Final award will be made at District Championships at CCCP on December 3rd and consists of the most fabulous prize possible – Bragging Rights until the 2007 season! Take it with you to Providence!

And speaking of awards – we are finalizing our packages to the 14 different categories in this year’s BASP series, presented by Accelerade and are pleased to announce some headline packages going to the winners of the following categories:

EMen, Category “C” – a 2006 Bianchi “Axis” cyclocross bicycle – from the Celeste people themselves – Bianchi USA

EWomen, Category “C” – a 2006 Felt F1X cyclocross bicycle – from Roaring Mouse Cycles and Felt

Master Men, 35+ “A” – a Ritchey WCS wheelset from Ritchey logic, and the best handmade Dugast tires from Dick and retiring-from-business Eurocycling Imports

Master Men, 35+ “B” – a Cannondale CAAD 9 frameset from Big Swingin’ Cycles of San Francisco

EMen Cateogry "A" have added nearly $400 to their series prize package with a hefty turnout at Hellyer Park - and just think of Noble, Hernandez, and Funke - all Masters racers - getting the 1st row call up in front of some of the Big Kahunas who were in Gloucester (pronounced "Glow-cester", right?) and missed Hellyer. It's going to be a sweet start.

The Pilarcitos Emporium will be open for business this weekend and will have new BASP T-shirts (3 different shirt colors – black, red, and white), hoodie sweatshirts, for the “Hooskie-twoski-brewski” fans BASP pint glasses, and bells – you gotta have bells. Sheila Moon caps are on the way and they are GORGEOUS and we will have in time for Round 3 Sheila Moon Women’s T’s in full BASP regalia. And on the Pilarcitos Bistro
Menu - Chili Frito pie returns to the menu. We have all electrical generators working full steam so there WILL BE COFFEE in the morning.

And from our reg. Crew – how many competitors from Round 1 can put their hands on their series number? Start digging in the laundry pile and bring it to all BASP Series events.
