For those of you about to Cyclocross, Mr. Mack is throwing a kickoff party in SF tonight with CX Goldsprints to boot:
NorCal CX Season Kickoff Party!
Teams form all over NorCal will be descending on SF to push each other around and see who's the fastest... Come Friday night, September 17th (7 pm at 1090 Folsom Street, SF, CA) and get in on the fun. Team competition racing CX style GoldSprints.
Just $15 gets you beers and food all night, non boozy drinks too. All included for $15! DJ's all night. Prizes galore. Check out the sponsor list... we'll probably have TOO MUCH STUFF TO GIVE AWAY.
If you're coming from the East Bay or the South Bay, the venue is the Marin Bike's new factory store in downtown SF. SUPER EZ freeway access and tons of free, easy parking. After the event jump back on the freeway and you're in the rocket chair all the way home. Secure bike parking too.
Some people have asked me... "What's cyclocross style GoldSprints?" We set the distance at 800 meters. You race until you're at the 400 meter mark, jump off the GoldSprint bike, pick up a pixie bike and run a lap around the barriers and then you're back on the Sprint bike finishing the 400 meter distance to the end. We'll run a few heats of standard 500 meter races too as this is also a qualifying event for the 2010 GoldSprints World Championships being held in Las Vegas Thursday night during InterBike. It could be your ticket to fame and glory!
