June update

Opening weekend
There's been a slight juggling of dates for this fall's cyclocross season.  The opening weekend of the Arkansas Super-Prestige will be October 13 & 14 with the Night Race followed by Reservoir Cross.  If you were there last year, you know it will be pretty flippin' cool whether you're racing or watching.  There will be prizes, merchandise, and $800 up for grabs.  Watch this space for more details.

Showdown at Sundown/Ruts n Guts
The opening weekend was moved up a week to allow Arkansans to race in Tulsa the following weekend.  They offer quite a bit of cash, so it attracts really good racers from a wide area, which in turn attracts large fields across all categories.  Highly recommended.

Tubeless experiment
A lot of people coming to CX from mountain biking are interested in going tubeless.  In the next month or so, I'll be trying out a set-up with:
1) Velocity A23 rims
2) Stan's No-tubes rim strips
3) Michelin Mud 2 tires
and I'll be reporting on my experiences.

My oh my how time has flown.  The AMBCS season is in full swing, the temps are hitting the 90s, and le Tour starts in a couple weeks, which means that fall is coming!
