Wow the addition of a fat bike division was pretty impressive. As long as we have snow on the ground I can see this becoming a tradition. The 2013 Kisscross season has come and gone quickly and I’d like to thank all the supports through the year. It isn’t just the racers, it is all the folk behind the scenes too, the sponsors, the volunteers, the venue hosts. We could not do it without all of you.
Sorry that there seemed to be a mix up with the raffle, for some reason folks thought we were raffling items off at Velo City Cycles but that wasn’t the case, we always do it at the park after tear down. Greg Newland won the Kona frame and fork and Brian Gurd won the Velocity wheelset.
See you at Barry-Roubaix!

Markin Glen is such a fun venue and Tim Krone’s crew from Pedal Bike and the Trikats do such an amazing job setting it up, providing beer, food, tear down and also supporting the race by having his crew all race it as well. We could keep coming back to Kazoo with out all of this support. Cheers to you guys!
Today’s moves ups include Caleb Ohland, Brad Zapalowski and Sue Wellinghoff.
Also, we found a pair of car keys in the parking lot and turned them into the Kalamazoo Markin Glen Parks department. A volunteer also lost a very sentimental ring she got from her grandmother. Please give me a shout if you found it.
Great weather once again! Thank you Alger Bikes and Brian Walquist for the course work yesterday. We had a few folks in the Halloween spirit and Josh Duggan took first male with the tree scape costume complete with a squirrel and Danielle Musto took first with Captain America. We had quite a few errors during scoring in the B races yesterday due to some errant reads from Lowell 50 timing chips. The internet results should be correct now. Todays move up’s include Steve Kunnath, Pat Kulwicki, Max Anthes, John Hubbard and Bob Lalley.
Good luck at Iceman, we’ll see you in two weeks!
My apologies to the A racers that had to endure the bandit sand trap mound. If anyone reading this think that they can alter the course between races, you’re very wrong. Many people crashed due to this unfortunate event. One person ripped a derailleur off. If you would like to pay for his equipment, let me know, I will keep it anonymiss.
Thanks go out to Pete Hall for the great course layout and the TNR that set up the wickedness. Chad Rector also contributed the awesome Request Foods lasagna. thanks Chad!
This weeks move ups include Matt Acker, Doug Wise, Charlie Pike and Mike Lacy
Next event is Oct 27th at Manhattan Park in EGR. Always a good time there. Brian Walquist and Alger Bikes will handle the course plans, so head to the shop for you input ;-). This is the Halloween race- we will award for best costume men and women!
Overnight rains barely made a wet spot on the super dry soil at the park. The sun came out, cool temps, baked potatoes, the Lions won and the Founders Racing Team set up one long, wicked, technical course. Check out Jacks pictures for an idea of what was out there. Thanks for coming out and supporting Kisscross!
Thanks again to Rapid Wheelmen and Village Bike Shops for the awesome course and wonderful food, you guys do it up right. If you missed the race, we announced and awarded Jack Kunnen his donation check. Thank you to everyone that contributed, I appreciate it and I know Jack did too!
Time for move up notices. The following need to move up one class: Keean Mansour, Sherry Grimard, Paul Bybee, Scott Walburn.
Our only Saturday race of the season, hope to see you there.
