Just when you thought we were done, Bamacross returns to Brookside.
Due to a scheduling mix up Bamacross 9 saw us back in Brookside for the 5th time this season. No worries, with Brent at the helm there was no problem completely flipping the course upside down and all around. The course had features that we had seen before but throw in a lot more turns and a ton of mud you’ve got yourself a completely new course. The turnout was pretty low with road/mtn/lame season coming up and people transitioning into those disciplines but it was a good time none the less. In the first heat Kate lined up for the women’s race while Sam and Zach were all in for the Singlespeed race.

Kate had a great ride for another 2nd place finish while Sam rode away from the Singlespeed race with over a minute gap when all was said and done. Great job!
For the Men’s 4 race we had Daniel and Matthew rep the blue and brown. Daniel had a hard fought race, looking really strong through out and was able to net a 4th place finish.
Matthew was able to take off work to get a nice muddy ride in.

In the final race of the day Jonathan was the sole Cat 2 representative while Alan raced the Cat 3’s. Sam and Zach also lined up in the ‘here for the beer’ category, rocking heavy metal shirts, vests, jeans, and BMX bikes. They were definitely crowd favorites.

Only one race to go in the Bamacross series but don’t worry we’ve got some races on the books during the non cross months that should keep everybody busy.
Until next time.
