Bay Area Super Prestige Series 2009 Version Complete- Karen Brems & Josh Snead Claim Elite Titles- Congratulations Division Champions

The BASP Series is complete for 2009. The popular Cross Series wrapped up its racing at Coyote Point on a course that was lengthy in distance and featured all aspects of Super Prestige course design. The famous beach section that forces most riders to dismount and run through the sand is always a crowd favorite of this race route. There are also equal parts on course of dirt trails and pavement bike paths that balance out the overall feel of the racing for the riders.

hey Bikes Gone Wild-
wow your a fool-
last time I looked Young Gun was winning the Junior National Championship and doing USGP races as the #1 ranked Young Gun in America. Snead is amazing, but at least there is Junior's around here to push the old farts! Sure Dusty was spot on by listing Snead as the #1 rider in Norcal last year. And Snead backed that up by winning the BASP series as well as the final race there. But the Young Guns in Norcal have made bigger noise on the national level then Sneadly has. Snead is really good for a little guy. But it was the year of the Young Guns, like it or not.
