BASP 2 2016 Sep 28, 2016 Categories: Cyclocross, MASH, San Francisco, Uncategorized 0 Comment With the 2016/17 Bay Area CX season in full swing, and aligned with our Indian summer, racers met out at Candlestick State Park for BASP #2 of the series. This State Park is along the waterfront, next to a pile of dirt that used to house the local football team. Dry dirt, tall grasses and pungent fennel set the vibe here, and we like it. With a day of racing bikes and hanging out with friends ahead of us, the stage was set for the Bay Area Super Prestige Series.Proving we have evolved as a species, everyone found shade early in the day.Eddy crashed the day before, so was volunteering with registration and holding down the watermelon.Juniors to the start.
