POS clarified...not a clarified POS

This contest has generated more interest than I imagined...and why shouldn't it. You do not need a fancy cross specific bike to race cross. You do, however, need a POS to win a fancy MONSTERCROSS bike. Here are the rules:

The contest will run through the entire series

- I will be watching all series long and making mental notes and taking pictures
- You must race more than one race to be eligible
- ..... I thought there was another point to make, but, that just about wraps it up

Show me what you've got. Have some swagger. A costume will speak volumes to me. Themes are encouraged.

The winner will be announced at the series finale in Cullman, Be there.

this and that

George Ward flyer is up...you can officially start geeking out, spazzing out, dancing, singing, running into the wall... whatever it is you do.

and this...

A bunch of us got together and made a franken-cross course out at Oak Mtn. It has steep run ups, a long run up, several barrier crossings, singletrack, chip seal, gravel, slippery stuff, and grass. The only thing we don't have is sand. We meet on Sundays at 8AM, South Trailhead parking lot.

POS Contest

Do you have a parts bin cross bike, frankenbike, crossified mountain bike or just a plain old POS? You want a cross bike dontcha? Not just any cross bike - a monstercross bike. You're racing the BAMACROSS Series, Right?

I'm working out details, but, basically you will enter the POS contest at the first race. Your bike will receive a POS rating from 1-5. The winner of the Fisticuff will be the rider who scores the best results on the worst bike.

I will be the judge, judging will be influenced by my general mood, your general mood, my personal feelings regarding your appearance, your personal feelings regarding the color brown...and some other items I've yet to think up.

Judging can also be influenced by cash donations (brown paper bag only).

More details to follow.

This frame/fork is in addition to the one being raffled.

~5 Weeks

I swear, it seems like the gap between seasons gets shorter every year. Please note the date change for the first race. This will most likely be at West Oxmoor Park. Bike Link is the race promoter and they are working hard to get everything right.

Avondale Park is still a mystery and may be thrown in one of the inactive weeks whenever I can get a definite start date for construction. Don't forget that cx practices are going on at Ruffner Park on Wed afternoons. I'll probably skip avondale thursdays as they are doing this on Wed.

I'd like to start doing a group cx ride on Sat mornings if anyone is interested...
