With April 3rd just over a month away it';s time for a quick update on changes that will take place at the 2010 CultCross race with regards to Category changes. Since CultCross is no longer affiliated with the ACA I am going to a more lax "flight" system but will still have SS and Junior races. Three flights will be available for racers eliminating age classifications. There will be A,B and C flights for men and women. This hopefully will keep things even more grassroots and keep everything fun for everyone, plus you will get to line it up against people you might not normally get to race against in the more "structured" age classification format. Race entry will still be $20 and $10 for a second race. Juniors will be 16 and under and we will race for 30 minutes (or longer if they should choose). The third installment of CultCross should be another good time and I hope to see you all there! I'm trying to come up with some new course ideas, but I think courses of the past have been pretty rock solid according to your feedback, so look for more of the same with a tweak or two.

And do not worry, Single speed will still be one of them, I am actually looking to eliminatwe age classifications and use "flights" instead to consolodate and have more people racing for fun. I'll keep you posted and listen for feedback as well. It's looking like A, B and C flights right now for men and women with a Junior race (free) and a SS cat as well. And you know the course will reflect courses of the past, which means alot of FUN for every rider.

For those of you planning on racing Cult Cross 2010, the race is ON. The reason you do not see it on the ACA Calender is because the ACA is just too difficult for a grassroots race like Cult Cross to deal with. By the time I pay all their fee's, join the clubs, pay for officials, pay for insurance, etc, the race just ends up being a pile of work for free. Hence, Cult Cross will be run independent of any sanctioning body this year under an independent insurance carrier. Stay tuned here for start times and other details, but we are on for April 3rd. The biggest problem for me with the ACA was that I asked for six dates to do two races, the fact that I do not want to travel to Denver due to work and other restraints puts me behind the 8 ball and the ACA will not sanction competing races on the same day even though I am 2.5 hours away from the front range. Promoters are cannabalizing one another every weekend for dates of events, and Cult Cross really has no weight as it makes very little money for the ACA. I'm about having fun at a fun event and keeping it affordable, I can not do this through the ACA.
