Black Friday didn't forget BAMACROSS

make custom gifts at Zazzle

Trucker hats and tees with the SS design. Get some.


There are some scary tight battles raging in the series thus far. It looks as though Monty is going to be cold and sloppy! Probably want to pack a towel for this one.

NOTE: In the event of a tie: Tie breaker will be resolved by dance-off to be held immediately after your race in Cullman. Style of music to be selected by committee.

Somebody submit some photos. Dang, all i got is video and I'm making a sweet rendition mostly comprised of Jim Brock's dance routine. He said he hated the Beastie Boys...But the routine he put together suggests otherwise. I'm gonna go ahead and tell you that it was Bobby Brown mixed with MC Hammer and add a dash of 60's soul grooving... I'm not sure if it's blackmail material or promotional.

Anniston Cross...dressing

"popular search engine" pulls up the following when searching for "anniston cross":

Hairpieces at a local beauty supply store proved too tempting for a woman and a cross-dressing man Monday afternoon.

Anniston Police investigators said the pair walked into the Beauty Outlet at 1801 Noble Street and looked around for a while.

One approached the shopkeeper — apparently to distract her — while the other went to the back of the store and grabbed two black Harlem 125 hairpieces valued at about $100 a piece.

According to police, when the pair then met at the front of the store preparing to exit, the shopkeeper tried to stop them.

The cross-dressing man struck the shopkeeper and knocked her out of the way.

The two were seen fleeing in a small black Pontiac, possibly with out-of-state license tags.

The shopkeeper was not seriously injured.

Police had no suspects in custody Wednesday afternoon. If caught, the two would face second degree robbery charges

Wig brought the stars


Last night was a special event for Bamacross. We have established night time 'cross racing in Alabama. The sandpit being right at the center of spectatorship was great. Much heckling and cheering took place...I'm just now getting my voice back. I think the event went of without a hitch...with the exception of some idiot that kept jumping on the course and pushing racers...and pouring beer on them, what a waste of beer.

I have no idea what happened to make the 1/2/3 race play out the way it did, but it was a nailbiter fo sho.

What did you think of last night?

Let's meet up this Sunday in Montgomery and do it again, eh?

Good 'ol fashion capitalism, BAMACROSS style!

Just to let everyone know, we'll be selling this fancy international custom issue totally official BAMACROSS series stickers in Anniston. $3.00 in hard cash, and you could be taking one of these home.

Imagine the status treatment you'll receive with one of these on your ride?

Do it. Do it.

Results and night racing

Ok, The results for Heardmont are final. I gave it through the weekend and no protests arose. We will have the spreadsheet updated shortly. I hope everyone is as geared up about the Saturday night race this weekend as I am. The concession stand will be open, the music will be bumpin' and it will likely be c-c-c-cold. This should be...epic?

One of the main things to worry about is making sure that you bring appropriate dress for the conditions, both on and off the bike.

See you on Saturday!

Hope JAVABIKE doesn't mind

...But google says he has pictures and video from the previous 2 races...sweet

Preliminary Results

Please Note: I am only posting the categories which we had problems with. The remaining categories followed the normal protest procedures and were deemed complete as they were posted at the race. My earlier post said that the Men's 45+ were needed. Actually it was the 35+ in question. Thanks for all of the input I have been getting today. I think I just about got everything situated. I have been tweaking the results below as I get more input. So, keep it coming.

Heardmont Results

I will need a little bit of racer input on the men's 3/4, masters 45+ and the 5,6,7,8 place finishers of the men's 1/2/3 race. Not sure what happened, but we had a snafu with the start sheets. I will post the results as I see them and keep the protests open for input until friday at lunch. Bear with me and I'll get these up asap. Sorry for this, it doesn't happen often. Lucky for us cross racers are the coolest of any discipline and this didn't cause an issue at the races. If you have any input on these races or if you know what you're placement was on the above races, e-mail me marshallbrent at gmail dot com

Sorry for the delay

I'm back..sort of. I hope everyone is planning on coming out to Heardmont park on Sunday. The GSMR crew has been working hard to put together a great course and event for everyone. Heardmont has been a site of interest over the past few years for prospective promoters. I believe the local high schools have a cross country track out there that they use for training and competitions. I haven't personally been out there, but Hurley and the Bob's Bikes crew tell me it is a great course with a creek crossing that will get sloppy. The series contenders are shaping up and consistensy is almost beating out the higher placings.

Better bring your "A" game on Sunday, The B'ham Boys claim they are going to sweep all the categories...

Congratulations to the Promoter

It should be noted that the Alabama cyclocross scene just became one member stronger.

Our tireless promoter welcomed his second baby girl into the world yesterday morning; Sarah Cecilia Marshall was born at 12:27pm on Wednesday, November 5th. 6lbs 8oz.

Mama and baby are doing fine. Truth is, we're not even worried about Brent.

So if any updates are slow, now you know...

Sounds like everyone had a great time once again in T'town. The weather couldn't have been nicer. Scanning the results, it appears that some regulars didn't show and some new faces appeared. This should shake up the series points a bit and make it more interesting.

The results should be up today. If you have photos, send them to marshallbrent at gmail dot com
