pilarcitos-basp-logoThe Bay Area Super Prestige cyclocross series is set to start this Sunday at San Francisco’s McLaren Park, but the festivities actually get started this Thursday at Sports Basement in the Presidio with a season kick-off party. It’s the perfect way to reunite with old friends, have a drink  and win cool ‘cross stuff. The event features free beer,  a big prize giveaway, and a cyclocross panel discussion featuring Vanderkitten pro Barbara Howe, series promoter and cyclocross legend Tom Simpson, and the editor of Cyclocross Magazine, Andrew Yee. Talk cyclocross history, technique, training, equipment and more with the panelists and get all your cyclocross questions answered.

Perhaps the biggest draw may be the grand prize up for grabs: A Jamis Supernova cyclocross frameset with an Easton EC90X fork – the same frame and fork ridden by cyclocross pro and seven-time National Champion Jesse Anthony.

The fun is free and starts at 6:30 and goes through 8:30 p.m on Thursday, October 1st.
