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.
