Star Crossed takes it up a notch

The Star Crossed, America's first twilight cyclo-cross race, will return September 22 to King County's Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington. The event will kick off the US 'cross season for the sixth consecutive year under the bright lights of the velodrome.

This year the race is stepping up in prestige; it's earned UCI designation and will be not only the first UCI race in a series of top caliber cyclo-cross races on the West Coast, but also the first UCI level race in the US. Current Danish national champion Jochim Parbo is the first big name international rider to confirm his attendance.

Long time sponsor Full Speed Ahead has increased their support to become co-title sponsor. "Star Crossed has been a fixture in the northwest cyclo-cross scene and it keeps getting bigger and better. It's a great kick-off for the national season," said Max Ralph, Marketing Manager FSA. Local sponsor Gerk's Alpine Hut also joins the family of sponsors for this year.
