Kabush Confirmed for Star Crossed 'Cross
Star Crossed, the nation's first and only twilight cyclocross criterium, announced today that this year's Clif Bar/Hagens Berman Star Crossed Cyclocross race will be a battle royal of past and future Champions.
Carl Decker, who is coming off of two wins in a row, will compete against former champion Jonny Sundt who is re-energized and highly motivated after a two-year absence from the cyclocross scene.
"I may be a bit tired from setting up for the event but once I get out there it is game on and I will do everything I can to win the event again," said Jonny "The Cat" Sundt.
Carl Decker and teammate Adam Craig have spent a long season on the Norba and World Cup circuit which may or may not work to Jonny's advantage. Craig is just coming off an 8th place at the final stop of the World Cup mountain bike circuit and Decker has had a few weeks to recover after the World World Mountain Bike Championships. The dark horse of the night is Former Olympian Geoff Kabush who has taken a bit of time off and is busy preparing for his wedding in October.
Star Crossed is an event that features a spectator friendly course in Redmond's Marymoor Park. The race action is intense but the onsite festivities really keep the mood special. This year, the event includes a beer garden, live DJ, an industry expo, and a free spectator raffle and giveaway including a Ridley Crossbow frameset.The event will also include food and Zoka coffee.
