Points tallies updated through eight races

Linkable off to the right, as usual. We hope to have all the bugs worked out by now, but if you see anything funky, let us know at stephen erickson temporary, no spaces, at gmail.

Next stop: Boyle Park for the Jingle Bell Cross (sung to the tune of "Jingle Bell Rock"). Looks like some more mud might be in store! If last year's race is any indication, the Boyle course will be slightly less technical and more power-oriented than Allsopp, but with plenty of features to make it, ahem, interesting.

Turkey Burn coverage on Arkansas Outside

It was a muddy, sloppy day out at Allsopp Park yesterday, and Arkansas Outside has written up the Turkey Burn, with a bunch of cool photos and links.

JBar also has some nice photos and comments.

Results are linkable off to the right. Hose off your bike and get ready for next Sunday's Jingle Bell Cross!

Last minute note for Turkey Burn

There is a covered pavilion right near the start/finish of the course at Allsopp, so you can stay toasty dry and still be social, even if there is some lingering precipitation tomorrow.

And watch this vid so you can argue whether or not Nys should have been relegated:

Joey's not OK

In fact, he's pretty messed up.

Don't be a Joey. Get your hand on that top tube before dismounting.

Outdoors Inc results are up


It was a crazy, windy day. Tough racing. My back is killing me. But the event was great, lots of energy, fun course, longest running cross race in the country!

The cross monkeys are hard at work compiling series points. They'll be updated later in the week.

Quick note about Outdoors Inc race

The Outdoors Inc race is a fantastic event with a lot of history.  We're excited that they've agreed to be part of the Arkansas Super-Prestige series.

The set-up of categories in the Outdoors Inc race is slightly different than the ASP.  So if you want your Outdoors Inc results to count toward the series, this is what you do:

ASP Women: Sign up for your appropriate women's category in the B race.  All women, regardless of category, will earn points in the ASP Women's class, based on finish order among women.
ASP Juniors: Sign up for the Juniors 15-18 category in the B race.
ASP Fours: Sign up for the CX4 category in the B race.
ASP Masters: Sign up for the appropriate masters category in the A race. Masters racers 40 and older will earn points for ASP Masters.
ASP Open: Sign up for the appropriate category in the A race. Per ASP rules, all participants in the A race, masters or otherwise, will earn points in the ASP Open class, based on overall finish order.

Here's the catch: Non-Masters cat 4 racers are not allowed in the A race.  If you fit this description, and you want to race the A race, I would highly recommend seeking an upgrade, via usacycling.org, as soon as possible.
