WHY CULT CROSS IS NOT ON THE ACA CALENDER, BUT THE RACE IS ON!

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.

Does this mean you'll have strippers for officials?

I am Brian said...

I'll be there! And no doubt, it will once again be the most fun race of the year ...which just might be illegal in the ACA handbook...

Yes, I will do my best to secure strippers as officials, and the course will be a Cult Cross Classic. Snow is already almost gone. Thanks for the support guys.

So there. BCS will send a strong contingent if I have anything to do about it. I think we should all have to race with eye patches on to promote the "privateer" concept, John Paul Jones Style.
