StatenCX 3.0 Thank you’s, Results, and Media

(photo by Pete Marney)
StatenCX 3.0 was as big as a success as I could ever hope for it to be.  For me, it was the epitome of everything i love about cyclocross.  We had the perfect mix of racers,spectators, weather, sponsors, and fun.   The course was fun to ride and fun to watch.  I couldn’t have asked for a better event.
A HUGE thank you needs to go out to the following people/companies that made this race possible.

A HUGE Thank you to The Kingpin racing team crew as well as my friends and teammates who helped with set up, reg, and tear down.  This race would have been a disaster without them.
Myles Romanow was a huge help as well, and you should all check out his race, thesupercross cup, this weekend.  It’s in Nassau county now, so it’s a quick 30 minute drive to a great 2-day CX event (it’s closer than Staten Island).
I’d also like to mention that Alan Atwood is awesome.  So are the officials he brought along.  They went above and beyond with supporting this race.  We’re extremely lucky to have him in our cycling scene.

Racers: This race is all about you guys.  It’s not my race,  it’s ours.  Thanks for coming out and being a part of it.  The race has come to epitomize what’s great about our CX scene. We aren’t MAC and we aren’t New England.  We’re something else.  I can’t wait for next year already.
Let’s get down to business-  here’s everything you want post-race.
MEDIA (so far,  I’m sure there’s more to come):
If you couldn’t find a photo of yourself in these albums, you must be a ghost.  Enjoy the new Facebook profile photos!
Speaking of which,  be sure to follow Staten CX on Facebook and Twitter-  I’ll be posting more links to media as they are made available:
Thanks again everyone!!!!  See you at Whitmores Super cross this weekend.

It’s also on the Tube all day today!

The promoters of SICX understand you have a lot of choices for racing during the Thanksgiving holiday, so we’ve put together this FAQ to give a few more reasons to come to NYC and hang out on Wu-Tang’s turf:

Q: What does SICX mean?
A: SICX is our way of abbreviating Staten Island Cyclocross. Isn’t SICX much easier? Yes, yes it is.

Q: When is SICX?
A: Sunday November 29

Q: Where is SICX?
A: Uh… on Staten Island

Q: No, really… Where’s the race?
A: Wolfe’s Pond Park: The park is next to the Staten Island University Hospital and right off of the main drag, Hylan Boulevard (420 Cornelia Ave, Staten Island, NY 10312)

Q: Is that really in NYC?
A: Yes, Staten Island is a part of NYC. It’s one of the 5 boroughs of our lovely metropolis.

Q: How far is it from my house?
A: Glad you asked!

Distance from Albany: 176 miles or 2.75 hours
Distance from Philadelphia: 75.6 miles or 80 minutes
Distance from Phillipsburg, NJ: 61 miles or 60 minutes
Distance from Danbury, CT: 96 miles or 90 minutes
Distance from Manhattan/Brooklyn: Well that depends on how you’d like to travel: Via car, 27 miles from Central Park or 26 miles from Prospect Park

Public Transportation: Take the Staten Island Ferry to Staten Island- then Hop on the Staten Island Commuter Rail and take it to Prince’s Bay. See the Staten Island Commuter Rail Schedules pdf for full schedule (Page 8 – Sunday Service to Tottenville).

Q: What if my husband/wife/bf/gf/buddy/housemate/neighbor/uncle/cellmate wants to come? Will there be anything for him/her to do?
A: YES! Bring them! We’ll have food, music, racing to watch, etc. If they want to race get in touch and we’ll set them up with a demo bike (supplied limited)

Q: Tell me more about the food and other things you mentioned
A: OK. We’ll have a spread of traditional Belgian fare presented by Wafels & Dinges available for purchase all day, including wafels AND Croque Monsieurs, AND bacon (courtesy of Wellshire Farms). DJ Kendra will be cranking out music from dawn to dusk (if you consider 8AM dawn), and if the foul weather returns for another battle with our riders then we’ll have a bunch of huge party tents to keep you warm and dry while the riders get to suffer.
Please arrive early, CJ will likely eat all of the bacon.

Q: Music, huh? Do you mean real music or “bike race music”? You know what I’m talking about, right?
A: Yes, we know what you are talking about (wink wink). There won’t be any trance/rave/spin class music at SICX. You’ll have the unique experience of going totally anaerobic while Slayer pounds your skull with every pass of the DJ tent. Yeah, it’s going to be like that. If you would like to send music requests for the day, please do so:

Q: If I hear any trance, may I punch you in the face?
A: Yes, but with fair warning please.

Q: But I have a race in my home state that day, so why should I come to SICX?
A: Because our race is simply more fun. It might not have a big series with points and huge cash prizes, but we offer a very challenging course, great food, great entertainment, and we’re so close to every major roadway there’s no reason you can’t find a way to get here! That, plus our race is more fun. Trust us.

Q: But it’s Thanksgiving weekend and traffic is going to suck, right?
A: Actually, it’s not that bad. You’ll experience far worse traffic heading up to Massachusetts for Baystate and have to endure the worst traffic known to man by heading south to the MABRA Championships. So split the difference and come to Staten Island. It’s south of Manhattan and just off of exit 13A of the NJ Turnpike (The Holland Tunnel is exit 14), which is very easy to find from all of the major roadways.

Q: Can you give me any reason why I shouldn’t go to SICX on Sunday November 29?
A: Yes, you hate having a good time.
