I won’t even attempt to thank everyone that deserves praise for making this weekend possible, there were just too many friends, family and BAMACROSS faithful that step forward to keep it rolling. Much love to all of you. Bike Link Man did a great job of support once again, thanks Joe. The first race did not go without glitches, as usual and many deserving podium getters did not get there time in the spotlight, I apologize for that. We do need to get your prize bags to you though because Bike Link takes a ton of pride in the quality prizes they distribute for BAMACROSS. I would do us all a disservice if I don’t get your awards to you. I will have the results up shortly. Please message me if you did not pick up your awards.
I am getting a few messages regarding race info. I have not created flyers this year as in past years for a couple of reasons. The biggest reason is that we have 3 areas to obtain information (usacycling.org/bikereg.com/series rules) not to mention facebook, twitter… But, the fact that I am getting these notes means that I am not conveying race info very clearly. Let me know if the flyers need to come back or if I just need to make it clear where the info is, please? One of the problems is that I had the bikereg confirmed riders page linked instead of the main registration page. That is fixed now.
OK, this weekend is going to be so rad. The Tannehill venue has got a great area for course layout, spectator viewing areas, bathrooms, showers…ahhh. Remember the TEAM TENT POINTS!!! I have attached a venue map for your viewing pleasure.
Pre Reg ends on WEDNESDAY!!!!! Do not forget. No lines, No waiting.
Let’s get it on!!!!
Is still on for the Tannehill race. This will be a fundraiser for Magic City Cycle Chix/BUMP. So get out your old or new old parts-merchandise-shop old stock, etc… and get ready to make some cash.This is open to individuals, shops and any bike related sellers out there. Table space is 10 bucks and you can get one by e mailing jacquelynhm at g mail
I’ve gotten a few emails from folks wanting to upgrade their category and not having final results from last year. I’m not sure what’s going on, but the code keeps getting “eaten” when I load it. I should have this fixed at some point today. If you need the file, just e-mail me and I will get it to you.

I am pleased to announce that BAMACROSS has a new presenting sponsor in Cycling SOS. This is going to be a super cool application launching soon!
I have updated the schedule on the sidebar. Yep…the Kermesse races that I announced are gone, sorry. That was something I can’t remember ever doing (cancelling a race), but the venue shakeup was pretty crazy this year. Things have shaped up and we have some great venues on tap for you.
Tannehill is a venue that many of you have suggested over the years and with a little help from some friends, it is now a reality. We are still doing the “Parts Bin swap” at the first race, so if you want to set up a table, be sure to e-mail jacquelynhm at g mail dot com.
The schedule has been updated on the sidebar and flyers will soon follow. We are still seeking sponsors, so if you are interested shoot me a message and we can discuss options. You will notice a few venue changes, their may be a few to follow as we wrap up negotiations with potential venues. We will offer a season pass for purchase soon on Bikereg, so keep your eyes open.
At ease ladies,
I know you are all teary eyed and sullen now that little bike race in France is over. But, never fear- the doctor has a cure. Now is the time when we set our sights on the less serious side of cycling and start thinking of cooler temeratures, knobby tires, sand, barriers and beer. It’s time for cross. Time to start training and thinking about what’s to come. I will have some updates on venues and sponsors coming shortly, so hold your hat. It’s getting close.
It’s been awhile between posts…I almost forgot the password.
