Portable Cyclocross Training Barrier

It's time to start practicing! September 11 is going to be here before you know it...!

Portable cyclocross barrier for systematic Cyclocross training anywhere. Work your way up to the UCI CX barrier height systematically, or tune your MTB skills

The best way to double up on the Alma GP weekend is to come play bikes in Alma on September 11 and then make the short drive to the Uncle John's Dirty Ride on Sunday for their gravel race!

Camping is available at the Alma GP venue on Friday and Saturday nights, and from Steve's post below, on Saturday night at Uncle Johns as well!

Make a fun weekend out of this and get registered for both!

Updates!

1) It's full-on mowing season - any and all gas fund donations (https://www.bikereg.com/almagp) are greatly appreciated! This summer the grass has grown like CRAZY but we're on it!

2) Update on call-up procedure for race day: It would appear that USAC's CX rankings are mostly listed as "600" so we'll go with crossresults.com ranking to sort out race-day call ups. Remember, those only apply if you're pre-registered, so sign up (https://www.bikereg.com/almagp)

3) Monday Fun Days with The Alma GP are slated to kick off on August 2! Join us if you can.

4) Juniors are racing for free this year, thanks to Grimpeur Bros. coffee. 1 bag of the Alma GP Roast = 1 free entry for a junior, so thanks for supporting this! (https://www.grimpeurbros.com/products/alma-grand-prix-roast-coffee)

5) This year we added a category for masters 35+ women and also categories for men and women who race on bikes with rim brake bikes! #cantistopwontstop

6) The new Arbor Move section on course is going to be HOT, right Middy Matthews?

7) Our 11.5" tall Michigan Bicycle Law barriers will once again be positioned inside a tent!

8) We have TWO reserved team spots remaining. Sign up for those on BikeReg.

9) The Alma College Men's Lacrosse team will once again be helping with parking - thanks for making a ($2? $5?) donation as they assist you on race day!

10) The Avalon Pontoons Beach & Yacht Club is looking good, and the up.bike and Alma Optics stairs are ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

11) Friday night: Early number pick up at the Alma Brewing Co followed by shenanigans at the 'cx course thanks to up.bike - stay tuned! Camping is available on site (as always) but if you want something a little more refined, reserve a room at the Saravilla Bed & Breakfast of Alma, right near downtown!

12) If you're into disc golf, check out the Alma Disc Golf Club's event on August 7! https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/The_Runway_DGC_Trilogy_Challenge_2021?fbclid=IwAR1zG-rQhTODG--olEgrmialTzLVQ7IkPlUPRsDGPvKPi7AaAOW1bxDrqwc

Tire choice....questionable. JB, I'll be doing trail work tomorrow so if you need / want to give my Zoom slot to someone, please do. Bummed to miss the fun but the weather clock is ticking.
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?
