These commemorative tees will let all your friends know that you are supporter of cyclocross in the Natural State and as such you are much cooler than they are. They will be green with envy and will covet your most amazing shirt until their dying day. … Or until they get one for themselves.

In all seriousness though, tee shirts are still available! $20 plus mailing fees. Leave a comment or email mrbenglenn at yahoo dot com

All the proceeds go to the betterment of cyclocross in Arkansas. and the purchase of bourbon and beer.

Arkansas Cyclocross State Champs

2 Dec

We have a little less than two weeks from the Arkansas Cyclocross State Champs. I am using this blog as a way to put out some info on the event.

So far we are set up to have a really great event. We have had a great season of racing this year (so I have heard). This is the last race in the Arkansas Super Prestige Series and I hope to make it memorable.

I am mainly interested in making the course as good as possible. That is why most of us race cross anyway. Here is the basic outline of the course. It will be run in a counter clockwise direction. I am hoping to make the course very European in nature. There should be a long muddy section, sand, pavement, long field sections, and good spectating areas too.

We also know that those traveling into the area may want to know where to stay. If you need suggestions check out this list

The event is the State Champs for Cyclocross if you didn’t know already. As such we will be awarding state champ jerseys to the following categories. I have secured no extra $ for the payout other than the % of entry fees that was listed on the flyer.

Cat 1/2
Cat 3
Cat 4
Cat 5
Juniors men(boys)
Juniors women(girls)
Women cat 4
Women cat123
Masters 35-40
Masters 41-45
Master 46-55
Master 56+

I confirmed today that we will be hosted by the Ozark Beer Co for the after party. We will award jerseys and medals at that time and place. Not before. This will give us time to calculate results for the categories before the awards presentation. The overall awards for the Arkansas Super Prestige Series will also be presented at that time.

This is going to be fun.

De Pijp is producing these limited edish tees to commemprate the 2013 Season of ASPS. They will be available for purchase at the race.
