The American pro cyclocross scene gets under way October 1st in Seattle with the fourth annual Clif Bar/FSA Star-Crossed Cyclocross at King County's Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA. Called the Daytona 500 of 'Cross and held under the lights of the Group Health Velodrome on a fast and spectator friendly course, is as much a festival for the 'cross season as it is a race; Star Crossed features DJ spun tunes, the Tona Cerveza beer garden and a Giant Bicycles free raffle for the crowd. Brats, sandwiches and coffee by Zoka Roastery.

Expected to race is 2004 U.S. Gran Prix overall winner Ryan Trebon, who is just recovering from a fractured wrist suffered in the International Tour de 'Toona, NORBA National Series Cross Country and Short Track Champioan Geoff Kabush and Notrthwest-based cyclists from Ann Knapp to Barry Wicks.
