Amendments to the series rules

1. There will be no double points race this year.
2. We have included a "drop" race in the final series tally. This means that you will get to drop your lowest score. If you have to miss a race this will keep you in the hunt for the overall.

Avondale is so close. I'm partial to this course...as I'm sure I've mentioned before. The stair climbs are offset by downhills like you see Hurley ripping. I hope to see all the usual suspect next weekend along with a fresh crop of new riders looking to see what all this stuff is about. One shot at Avondale and they'll be hooked.

the first two are up. click on the races to the right.


It's official: Tuesday nights starting September 16 @ 6 p.m. Matt Holdbrooks and I will be hosting an informal, weekly cyclocross practice at the Trussville Disc Golf course. We ask everyone to meet at the golf course parking lot off of Cherokee Street at 5:45, or at the Trussville Cahaba Cycles at 5:30 p.m. I would expect to spend about an hour riding, dismounting, running and suffering for about an hour. The course is 1.7 miles in length consisting of about 4 natural dismount spots and a couple of rideable steep sections. As we move deeper into the season plans to incorporate artificial barriers to force running on some of the steep sections are being considered.

If you want to race up this year, you must have your official upgrade. Make sure to contact Bill Seitz for this request. You may be able to do this onsite, but you should verify with Bill first.

We are inching closer and closer to opening day for the 2008 Alabama Cyclocross season and as we approach a few items to note:

The Mobile race weekend has been cancelled. We will leave this weekend open due to the Dead Dog Mt Bike race conflict.

We should announce the main sponsors of the 08 season this week, so stay tuned.

The remainder of the previously posted schedule should remain the same. Wig is still working on the course for the night race. We may have to switch this race if it doesn't work out. The previous date given for this race was a Sunday, if the night race happens the date will be changed to the day before (Saturday). There are a couple of races that may be added as non-series races (sloss and george ward).

the first race will be at Avondale instead of Homewood on Oct. 5th.

In addition to our bike shops that have supported the series the past two seasons, we have some great companies stepping up to add support.Urgent Care Center, Kenda, Twin Six, Primavera Coffee, Myogenesis, Hammer Nutrition. Bike Link has also stepped up to lend a hand this year. So, stick around for the whole season, there will be some great prizes for the series finalists!

We did a great cyclocross workout Saturday morning at George Ward Park. There were four of us and we were nice and muddy when it was over! I am going to switch the weekly practice from Avondale to George Ward as it is just a great course for practice. Avondale is sure to brutalize you on October 5th.
