  • Details for SCCA/Starbucks GP

    Season Pass Holders and Preregistered Riders that have a MFG Race Numbers and RFID Chips will not have to check in this week. If you are missing either of these items please check in at registration.

    If you are making a Category Change please check in and registration.

    Numbers on the Left.

    Day of race registration will be available. Riders must register 25 minutes before start of their category.

    Tents this week will be placed in the same place as StarCrossed. Please keep them tight, together and in orderly rows. King County Parks is very picky about tents. Keep them in this area or risk (say it with me!) having them taken down “East Coast Style”. Please be set up by 8:30.

    Course map is here.

    Expo Area & Food

    • Here and There Grill will be on site as always. Here is the Menu for this week.
    • Yeah! Cookie will be serving up sweets.
    • Tim will serving up coffee again this week from his cart.
    • Rapha Mobile Cycle Club will be rolling in to show off their winter performance clothing line.
    • Mad Fiber will be offering demo wheels for test.
    • Net-Profits from this race will be donated to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Visit them in the Expo Area if you would like to donate to them directly.
    Demo Bikes
    Focus Bicycles and Cascade Bicycle Studio will be offering free demo bikes to race on this week. First come, first served.

  • Details for Magnuson Park Cross

    We are excited for the Second Annual Magnuson Park Cross. Big thanks to Seattle Parks for working with us.

    Couple of Details for the Race:

    1. Reminder that the SR520 Bridge is closed this weekend. Allow more time from the Eastside.
    2. We will have a coffee cart on site this week and the rest of the season in the Expo Area.
    3. Course map is here for review.
    4. For Season Pass Holders and Preregister Riders WE ARE REQUIRING THAT YOU CHECK IN AT REGISTRATION AT LEAST 25 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR RACE, TO EITHER RECEIVE A CHIP OR HAVE YOUR CHIP LOGGED INTO OUR SYSTEM. This will help insure accurate results. Chips at StarCrossed were not permanently recorded in our series-wide registration system. ALL RIDERS WHO DO NOT CHECK IN WILL NOT BE SCORED.
    5. Day of Race Registration is available. Riders must register 25 MINUTES BEFORE THEIR RACE.
    6. Tents will be placed in Parking Lot E4. Enter from the 65th Entrance to the park. Please start the row at the east side of the lot running north to south. Start the second row 10′ off the first to the west. For this week it is critical that you are loaded in by 8:30 pm. Tents not in this area will be taken down as Zac likes to say, “East Coast Style”.
    7. Please be super friendly to other park users this week. Many folks walk Magnuson Park as a weekly ritual. We are disrupting their ritual a bit this week.

    Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday!
