2011 Boss Cross New and Details - Check it!
Hello all for 2011- Sorry for the lack of news. As you have probably figured, the flooding of 2011 dealt Boss Cross a harsh blow. 2 prized venues have spent the spring and summer underwater. The upside is that we have lots of new, natural sand. The downside is that we don't get to race in these parks this year. That's cool. We've been complacent, and it's forced use to find new venues, which is why we've been neglecting an update... Good news for 2011 - Boss Cross is going to do two weekends. We noticed a dearth of weekend racing this year, so we're filling the void. Kansas City Cross is huge, and we think we need to be racing Saturday and Sunday whenever possible. Second good news for 2011 - We are going to be rolling out a new park (to be named later...) in Kansas City North as a new venue for State CX Champs and Boss Cross 4. Which brings us to... Good News #3 - We (I - Jeremy) screwed up last year. I hosed Andy Lucas out of the Overall victory because we squeezed BC categories into MO State CX categories. Not that Dave H isn't a worthy winner, he's fast, a cool dude, and definitely deserved his win; however, I deprived both Dave and Andy the chance to dice it up and throw down for the V... Not this year. We are going to do Boss Cross Finals (#4) and MO State CX on separate days that way I can't be blamed for someone losing... even though I still think about it all the time... So, schedule (flyer to come later) Boss Cross 1 - Saturday, October 1 - Barry-Platte Park Boss Cross 2 - Sunday, October 2 - Barry-Platte Park Boss Cross 3 - Sunday, October 30 - Venue TBD (maybe wyco, maybe KC North, lots of options being tied down) Boss Cross 4 - Saturday, December 3 - Venue TBD (likely Gladstone - Oak Park) MO State CX Championships - Sunday December 4 - Venue TBD A flyer will be put out soon. You can begin preregistration at www.sportsbaseonline.com (as usual) on Tuesday September 5. Same categories and start times as last year, same entry fee, same package deal ($85) for all 4 Boss Cross races. Can't add CX States into that. Sorry. Racing starts on October 1. See you at Manions on 9/24... Hit me up with questions as usual... I'm around and will get back to you! Jeremy and Joe
