Shirts and Pint Glasses!

If you're interested in stopping by the Alma Brewing Company on Friday, September 5, from 6-8 p.m. to pick up your number, you may just be in luck...

The first 25 racers to do so will get a FREE pint glass!

But what if you can't make it? Don't worry - I'll have a limited quantity on hand to sell for the low low bargain price of $5 each.

Wow, what an awesome design though! It's not too good to be true... I'll also have a limited run of 50 Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross shirts on hand as well! Cost is $15 and when they're gone they're gone...

Don't forget, pre-registration is open HERE until Sunday, August 31 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Late registration is available on site for an additional $5. If you are NEW to 'cx and don't hold an annual USA Cycling license you can purchase a one-day license when you register for the Category 5 men's or Category 4 women's events (required for ALL racers). However, thanks to the supporters at Seals, Tacia, Bartz, Zainea, & Whitmore Optometry, I have a discount code to help offset this one-day license fee! E-mail me, racepromoter at gmail dot com, for the code.

Work day on Saturday, June 21!

THIS SATURDAY, June 21, from 10-1, will be a work day at the venue. Things needed:

Detroit Mower Gang - style mowing of the path. Push mowers at this point are best, as some of the lumps are large and in charge. Four push mowers would probably necessitate only two laps of the course for a complete cutting. Please bring gas, but I'll have a few gallons on reserve.

Following behind the mowers, the course should be raked to be free from debris. If you want to rake please bring a rake!

One of the old compost mulch piles needs to be cut down from scratch; two others need to be cut down a bit more than they already are. If you want to dig, please bring a spade and or a hard metal rake if you have one to help grade the ramps.

Random dirt-filling of old ruts from when this was an active compost area - these are hit and miss; some are worse than others but there are five or six that at this point would cause more than just an annoyance to your front wheel...

If you want to bring a bike to ride afterwards, I'd recommend 29'ers at this point, as the course is rough.

Plan on 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. (ish) on Saturday! If you are interested and available please either e-mail me (racepromoter at gmail dot com) or post up on Facebook in the comments!

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP! The next work day will be towards the end of July.
