“Cyclocross is an incredibly fun and exciting sport, for racers and spectators,” said Jessica Cos, director of Harpoon Helps and Sponsorship at Harpoon Brewery, long time sponsor of the event. “It lends itself f to a great fun, social environment where celebrating with beer is an integral part of it all. Harpoon’s ‘Love Beer, Love Life’ motto is a great fit! The KMC Crossfest in particular is an incredibly well organized event in a beautiful setting. It is a well attended event that we’ve been proud to be a part of since day one. It’s been fun to watch the growth of the event itself but also the impact it has had on the area, bringing so many visitors to the Providence area. We hope everyone has fun in the Harpoon beer garden getting up close to the racers as they pass through!"
