Round #2 is in the books and planning for Round #3- Beer, it's the luck of the Irish. is on......

We had an amazing turnout for the second round of our four round winter cross series this Sunday. It was an amazing crowd. We had people paying riders to eat twinkies whole on the start line, there were beer hand ups, doughnuts, twinkies, brownies, cash, and lots of kissing! We had a truly Belgium style back section that was technical and covered with snow and ice with a good mix of grass, pavement, and more snow and ice. All of our points have been tallied and you can download the latest update to points by clicking here. Want to thank all of our awards sponsors Obermeyer Honda Yamaha Suzuki of Jasper, IN, Mean Muggin Movers of Rockport, IN, Walnut Studio, Legend's of Evansville, IN and Owensboro, KY, The Sufferfest, and Be Real Sports!

Big shout out to the toughest rider of the day, Cody Clark 9 yrs old, going on a strong 10, he came out ran with the big boys in the Open Beginner and took top spot in the Under 12 Junior Category, He even stayed in front of quite a few of the adult beginners. Great job to Cody!!

Also, big thank you's go out to Rockport City Parks Board, the City of Rockport, Larry Myles of Be Real Sports, Keith Obermeyer of Obermeyer Honda Yamaha Suzuki, all the members of the Rockport Bicycle Group(gang), my lovely fiance Marcie, and every single person who came out to attend or participate.
