The Gadsden Times took some great photos of the early races. The link is here
I want to thank everyone for coming out to our first night race. We had a bunch of help from the city of Gadsden, it is race to host a cyclocross event where a local Tourism Board, Parks and Rec. Dept. and Public Works pull together to make it happen. Gadsden has been a great host for us. Back Forty Brewing Co. is not a bad ally to have either, eh?
Series points tally will be up shortly. We are already plotting and scheming course deviations for our next race in Cullman…
SEE FLYER FOR TIME CHANGES!
Podiums will be after the last race at Back Forty Brewery near the course. There are plenty of hotels nearby and camping is available 2 miles from the course at Noccolula Falls.
Remember:If you are a series leader, you must wear the leaders jersey. Pick them up at registration!
Remember to bring your race number from Bamacross #1!
THE SKYWAY EPIC MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE
SUNDAY MAY 19, 2013
SYLAWARD TRAILS AT LAKE HOWARD
The Skyway Epic is an endurance mountain bike race in the Talledega National Forest. The race will be 60ish miles long and feature enough climbing to satisfy a mountain goat, enough rolling forest service road to satisfy a roadie, enough crazy descending to scare the timid and satisfy the unstable. The race will begin and end on some of the finest flowy, grin-enducing singletrack in the southeast via the Sylaward trail.
It’s all over but the cryin’, folks…and it’s only me cryin’. The trailer is parked for a while. What a great season. We started and ended with epic mud at great venues. Thanks to all the support staff, promoters (Wig,Hiott), Jacquelyn(my lovely wife), Matt,Jason,Lindsay, and of course all the racers.
If you aint training for skyway yet, you better get on it! The trailer rolls again in May!
The link for the updated results is below. The last race of the year is this Sunday at the Historic Sloss Furnaces. The forcast currently calls for rain so be sure to bring your tents and umbrellas to keep the grills dry.
Remember that pre reg closes Friday, December 14, 2012 at 4:00PM.
