While we don't know what September will look like, we do know that mowing season has started! Thanks for helping out with the gas donations through BikeReg - no matter what happens come September, we can't afford to let the track disappear back into the wilderness!

Brendon Sharratt NZCX Rider

There's lots you can be working on! Cross will be here soon enough... Here's our friend Brendon Sharratt NZCX Rider with a few pointers on shouldering.

We'll see you on September 12...!

Shouldering Sunday Skill Session.
A must to be learnt for cyclocross. Running with the bike through mud, up hills or even down hills is what you'll encounter in a cyclocross race.
As you can see in my video I am clipping out of my pedals the same as I would for a barrier.
While my foot is ready & to hit the ground running I am getting my right hand & arm ready for the bike lift.
Once my feet are on the ground the shouldering motion starts.
Also. See how my left hand is still on the handlebars as I am running up the hill?. This is to get ready for next step of the motion and that's the bike drop & remount.
Once I get the bike back on the ground I can keep control of my bike while my right hand is getting his act together to join back on the bars ready for me to jump back on.
Hope you find this info helpful๐Ÿ‘

We're making a few modifications to the race day schedule this year! There are still PLENTY of options to double-up on race day, and these changes will help keep things moving along, encourage larger fields on course, allow for more practice laps, and overall help to streamline the day. We are still offering 17 total race categories, but the day schedule is changing.

We'll see you on September 12 - registration for the 2020 Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross & 5K will open soon!

Thanks to the hard work of #cyclocross promoters across USAC- and non-USAC events in Michigan, the 2020 'cx season schedule is shaping up nicely!

Stay tuned for a few changes to the day schedule (to better accommodate changes in our racer demographics) and an updated race calendar soon.

Now, in your free time start thinking about how you and/or your team might start a Monday Fun Day, Questionable Traction, or CXpreX-esque informal gathering to help encourage new 'cxers this fall!

What, exactly, are #FlamingoProTips? They can be difficult to describe, but you can see evidence of them if you look hard enough.

For example, check out Tyler Cloutier's third row start position at USA Cycling's #cyclocross national championships yesterday. Within 150 m, Tyler - a.k.a. "Mr. FlamingoProTips" himself - maneuvers himself to be in great positioning for the first turn.

From all of us at the #AlmaGPofCX, congrats to Tyler on a great effort at nationals!

Lord of the Springs scheduled same day as Alma ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.
Come to the Sekrit Bar (follow the signs) and get a selfie with Famous Doug. Give our hand ups from there, have a cool beverage (on is) listen to music and chill...
Is there a winner in a kilt challenge again this year? Jeff Abernathy???
Are we doing the Monday Funday in the rain tonight?
Just registered for my 1st cx single speed race.
Oh no! I had a crazy evening and didnโ€™t get my clothing order in yesterday ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ hope none of you were like me
Where can we find results?
The Alma GP is tomorrow. Look for this at the race. If you are racing, donate. If you are spectating, stop out and donate. If you hate callous drivers, donate. If you hate cell phones in cars, donate. If youโ€™ve been passed close, donate. If you think rolling coal is for the insecure and weak, donate. If you knew Mike, donate.
Is there Day-of registration? Is there a discount for second races?
Justin Lindine you free this weekend?
I wish there were 3 like buttons for Alma Grand Prix!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ––๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค™
