Stuckylife Semiprestige Cyclocross Race - December 18th 2016




 

This December 18th in collaboration with Stuckylife, Broad Street Cycles is proud to announce the fourth annual Stuckylife Semiprestige. Heading back to the year's best venue: Mary’s Farm & Sanctuary on Finlayson Arm Road.

Details:   

11am
A & B race
$15 entry

All abilities, bikes and ages welcome. Spectating encouraged!
The course is on an amazing venue, kindly offered up by Mary of Mary’s Farm & Sanctuary. It will be a Vancouver Island variation of a classic CX course: twisty, flowy, grassy and off-cambered. The farm is a tubular-friendly field, and set in a large rolling pasture. It should provide a fantastic mix of challenging features, and lung-searing laps. Think maximum flow, crazy Belgian off-camber lines, and natural grass bowls.

Parking: Riding out to the race is encouraged, though limited parking is available at the Farm & Sanctuary. Likely room for 15-20 cars MAX. However, parking is available in Goldstream Park, 1.5km away from the venue!

The Broad St. crew will be leading a group ride from their shop up to the race. Rolling out at 9:30am from the shop (1419 Broad St).

Broad Street Cycles will be on hand for “neutral” support solutions.

Bring a backpack with warm clothes and drinks. We will have a few tents set up, possibly some warming beverages on tap, and are planning on making a day of it. Lights for the ride home are a good idea.

PRESENTING PARTIES
Big thanks to the following for helping us get this crazy event off the ground.

Broad Street Cycles
Providing a landing pad for all things Stuckylife & cycling counter culture, these guys are not jerks, and can sell you a really nice set of tires for your CX race rig.

Driftwood Brewery
Fat Tug? Need we say more? Driftwood is on board for their 3rd year of providing the best podium prizing at any CX race ever.

Velofix Victoria
Supporting, and racing at, our ridiculous little CX races for years, the crew at Velofix Victoria can do a PRO repair job on your whipped cross bike, and will probably out ride you in the main event. What's not to love?

FOCUS Bikes
Making some of the shreddiest CX race bikes on the scene, Focus is wrapping the course in their ultra-technical, highly-engineered course tape. Look for a couple of their Mares CX bikes sweeping podiums all afternoon.
