MFG Cyclocross Series Race #5
October 27, 2013
Seattle-based SCCA/Starbucks Cycling Team hosted the 2012 SCCA/Starbucks Gran Prix. Unique to the SCCA/Starbucks Gran Prix is the partnership with Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), based in Seattle, WA. As part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, proceeds from the event went towards treatment and care for breast cancer patients of SCCA.
The course was fast and slick.The Cat 4 riders (me), got a good jump on decent conditions but the rain started just as we concluded. Many Cat 3 riders slipped, fell, slid and wiped out. Many costumes were donned which made for a fun race as a spectator.
Many thanks to MFG, the volunteers, Marymoor Park and the sponsors/vendors.
