Simpsons to Bow Out of BASP

30 October 2015

Tom Simpson is announcing 2015 is his and Alec’s last season running the Bay Area Super Prestige cyclocross races. Except for the CCCP race at Coyote Point, that will continue as a stand-alone event, Simpson says he will “bow out of event promotion”. The future for the remaining events in the group go over to Murphy Mack and SuperPro CX. “SuperPro Racing will provide the manpower to keep Tom and Alec Simpson’s BASP rolling on just as it is,” reported Mack by e-mail. “Nothing is changing, it is BASP as BASP has always been BASP.”

CX Nation Announces:
The CX Nation Cyclocross Team 2014

Santa Rosa, CA 8/25/2014: CX Nation officially announced the formation of a new cyclocross team in Northern California – CX Nation. The team will be based out of Santa Rosa, CA. The CX Nation cyclocross team is composed of five riders that will be competing in the Northern California cyclocross circuit, as well as taking part in several races across the country; culminating in the National Championships in Austin, Texas.

The team includes Brian Staby, owner and founder, Brij Lunine, Kristin Drumm, Sage Aldeberan, and Miles Daly. All riders are “A” level/Category 1,2 racers and will compete in Master’s, Open, and Junior races. Sponsors include Rock Lobster Bicycles, Easton, crankbrothers, Rip van Wafels, Smith Sunglasses, Bar Fly, Osmo Nutrition, Challenge Tires, Cross Propz, Bike Monkey, Taylor Maid Coffee, Eschelon Cycle and Multisport, and Cranking Glass Photography.

The goal of CX Nation is to support the sport of cyclocross through clinics, coaching, events, and now a team. CX Nation offers clinics throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and coaching via the internet. CX Nation and Bike Monkey co-produce the Santa Rosa Cup Cyclocross races in Sonoma County each fall.

“I started CX Nation 5 years ago because there was not a way to introduce new riders to the sport,” described Staby. “Now with cyclocross specific clinics and coaching, the San Francisco Bay Area has that outlet. Also, being from Northern California, I wanted to support the area because we have such great resources for cyclocross. Hence, I searched for most of our sponsors and riders who are based in Northern California. I believe the quality of riders and race venues in Northern California compares with and even surpasses all the other regions in the country.”

For further information about CX Nation and the team: Contact Brian Staby by cxnation at gmail.com or 707-486-7610. Also check out all that is CX Nation at the website.

“Kid” Kaiser to Wear Different Togs

29 July 2014

Cody Kaiser has been a member of Cal Giant/Specialized for such a long time that it became a common and expected sight of the NorCal rider in familiar Giant Berry-red. As a cyclocross racer, “Kid” Kaiser has competed internationally and nationally but also locally; it was always gratifying for the region to see him cranking around courses at SacCX, CCCX, or BASP. Yet now the local bicycle-racing community needs to become familiar with one of its favorite sons wearing a different livery. Getting older happens to even the best and young Cody Kaiser has aged-out of Cal Giant’s under-23 programme.

Competing here at the Little City Stage Race, Kaiser (far right) has already been seen racing in a different kit.
