Pilarcitos Kicks Off at Brisbane

Howdy 'cross fans, and welcome to October....Following on the heels of last week's well attended NCNCA Cup opener at the Lion of Fairfax, this year's Pilarcitos Bay Area SuperPrestige kicks off Sunday at Sierra Point in Brisbane.

The SuperPrestige race is a location change from the previously advertised Hellyer Park location due to construction at the track. The course in Brisbane is nearby the US Grand Prix race of a few years ago, but a new course for this year.

Tom Simpson says:
What's the course like? - net comparison is, "If you like Candlestick Point, you'll feel right at home at Sierra Point." Both are former land-fills with some modest bumps that we take advantage of 3 times at Sierra Point. We'll have a set of triple barricades leading to a short run-up, a Fish hook cut into the weeds, some resident jack rabbits to chase, a couple off-camber sections, a final set of double barricades - and a remarkable Swoop-Dee-Doo where modest air time is possible. Overall length is about 2,400 meters with maybe 400 meters of pavement overall in a couple sections.

For race times and details see the calendar or the Pilarcitos site.

Regarding the NCNCA Cup, results for all races are in the Results blog, and the first round of NCNCA season points will be in the NCNCA Cup blog shortly.

Yes, Candlestick point is a dump, and yes they have had reports of the dirt being contaminated.

But at least I can ride there without offending anyone but some african-american drug dealers.

And yes it is true that Candlestick point is a dump, Tom needs to understand this.
