Andy Jacques-Maynes(Cal. Giant Inc./Specialized) keeps his 2012 regional race un-beaten streak alive with a standout victory in the Men's Elite division at
Bay Area Super Prestige opener.

It's a bird, it's a plane... No! It is AJM the current "Super Man" of Cyclocross in the NCNCA region.

Ellen Sherrill(Bicycle Blue Book/HRS/Rock Lobster) rides to her second win in two weekends, backing up her Livermore Cross Festival 1st place ride, with another stellar victory at BASP Candlestick Park.

Below- Smooth as silk.... Ben Jacques-Maynes uses the right-side mount style in perfect application, and demonstrates a silky smooth racing style that Nor-Cal Cross fans appreciate with high regard.

Men's Elite division race saw one of Nor-Cal's finest Cross racers ever return to action, as Ben Jacques-Maynes(Ritte Racing) joins brother Andy on the podium.  The fast Bro's put Nor-Cal's other top Cross dog Scott Chapin(Bicycle Blue Book/HRS/Rock Lobster) in a
Jacques-Maynes sandwich during the main event.

Gigantic fields ruled the day on a course that demanded complete concentration from start to finish. 
One adverse slip or slide and next thing you know your covered in dust and a road hazard for the rest of the field.
Temperatures soared as one of the best weather weekends of the year greeted riders to BASP at Candlestick Park.

All aspects of Cross came into play as racers battled with eachother and the course near San Francisco.

Full groups in all divisions made for tight racing all the way down the line.  It very much was an awesome display of
Cyclocross fever for Nor-Cal. 

The 2012 season is in top gear and the racing action will only get better as the year progresses. 
So many awesome events in Nor-Cal to take part in, with Surf City Series- CCCX Series- El Dorado Hills Classic- Sacramento Series- Santa Rosa Cup Series- Fresno Homegrown- Sagebrush Series. 
The racing just keeps getting better!

World Masters Champion Karen Brems(Team Rambuski Law) shows fine form and serious strength on her way to another podium ride near Candlestick Park.

Contested in balmy weather where sunscreen was the called for protection from the elements, the Bay Area Super Prestige at Candlestick Park showed Cyclocross Racing truly is King in Northern California!

The weather was so hot, it was surprising some racers simply just did not race naked...

Women Cross racers of Northern California rule!

The heat was on in San Francisco for the Bay Area Super Prestige Event.

Cross is King & Queen in Nor-Cal!
