Sloss Cross! Bamacross #6
By far one of the team’s favorite venues. Not just because it is only 2 miles from the shop but also because our fair city is the backdrop. How rad is that? The first race saw Anna and Kate in the Women’s Elite race and John, Zach, and Lee in the single speed race. Despite losing her chain Kate was able to get her best result yet with second place coming in behind Maike from BBC racing. John was able to pick off George Mattison for third in the single speed race. Zach was having a great race until he fell victim to the course, knocking his knee on a fence post in the 3rd lap.

The second heat was the Men’s 4 and Juniors race. The usual suspects were in it for us. Taylor, Daniel, and Thomas were all together until Thomas flatted on the cement step up. That left Taylor and Daniel together in the top 10 with Nathan, Jonathan J. and Ben chasing. Taylor and Daniel finished 7th and 8th after battling with Kyle from NSAT. Our lone junior William rocked his race in style in his new Bici jersey!

The last race of the day was the Men’s Elite and Men’s 3 race. This week was Boris’s debut in the ‘big boy’ race and after hanging on for the first lap he wisely started beer feeds as the field started to leave him. Sam and Jonathan R. were able to snag 2nd and 3rd in the 3 race meaning that they will be joining Boris in the Elite field in Gadsden. Alan survived on the lead lap for 7th and Travis came in 14th place in his debut Cat 3 race. That wasn’t all Travis debuted this weekend as you can see in the following picture.
Daniel Day Lewis or Mario? You decide.
