The North American UCI cyclo-cross season will kick off an international field heading to Redmond, Washington for the Full Speed Ahead Star Crossed Cyclo-cross, presented by Gerk's Alpine Hut. Taking place at King County's Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA on September 22nd, the Star Crossed field will include six current or past national cyclo-cross champions.
UCI number six ranked Swiss National Champion Christian Huele will join US National Champion Ryan Trebon (Kona/Les Gets) and Danish Champion Joachim Parbo (CCV) at the event. "We are very excited to have ranked European riders coming to Star Crossed," stated race director Terry Buchanan. "The scheduling of three excellent events with Star Crossed and Rad Racing GP in the same weekend and Cross Vegas the following Wednesday is a huge asset to bringing international talent together in the US."
Mountain bike champion Geoff Kabush (Maxxis/Litespeed), two time Star Crossed Champion ('04 & '05) Carl Decker (Giant), Barry Wicks (Kona/Les Gets), Troy Wells (Clif Bar) and ProTour roadie Aaron Olson will also be among a strong field for the first races of the UCI calendar.
