B.A.S.P. #2- Big Race By The Bay

Kerry Barnholt(Scott/Ritchey) and Josh Snead(HRS Rock Lobster) cranked out strong wins in the Women's & Men's Elite divisions on a testy course at Coyote Point today. It was a picture perfect day for racing on a stellar course that really tested technical skills and power output. The B.A.S.P. event was huge in turn out, with 136 riders in the "C" Men's division alone. That is most likely a Nor-Cal record for riders in one division. I can remember many, many years ago when most Nor-Cal races did not even have 136 riders total! All in all, around 600 Cross racers lined up for the challenge at hand and were greeted by great crowd support, a beautiful day, plus some fun riding. Congratulations to all who raced! Here are the rest of the division winners on the day: Single Speed A- Rich Maile Sacramento CX, B Men- Isaiah Rapko Team Oakland, Single Speed B- Evan Sarna Sheila Moon, C Men- Miles Stepto, Junior Women- Madeleine Myall Cal Giant Specialized, Juniors 10-14- Skyler Taylor Above Category Racing, Juniors 15-18- Brandon Chan Sycip Racing, Master 55+- John Elgart Webcor Alto Velo, C Women- Alison Starnes Evergreen, B Women- Courtney Shipman, Women 35+ A- Linda Elgart Webcor/Alto Velo, Master 45+ A- Robert Meighan Cal Giant Specialized, Master 35+ A- Don Myrah Ibis/, Master 35+ B- Mike Morgan Sycip, Master 45+ B- Zachary W. Beekler Pen Velo/Pomodoro. Full results can be found here-

Your series is coming on strong! When most series boast of nearly 200 riders, nearly 600 is huge! Proof that the PNW isn't the only place cyclocross is accessible! (For full disclosure, I participate in the Cross crusade)

Great course! I managed to lodge my seat in a tree limb on a run up and toppled over more than I can remember.
