A Boss Cross Season

I want to thank everyone that came out to race at this weekend Boss Cross 5 and 6, but also all season long!  We had a good number of racers (having great weather and the best courses in town helps!), lots of fast and competitive fields, and great times had by all!
We still have a lot of local racing to be had, but for now that's all from us at Boss Cross and Cycle City!

Boss Cross 5/6!

It's that time again. Course is set up, staked and taped; bikes are ready, prizes are sorted and I'm off to bed!
I hope you all are looking forward to racing at English Landing as much as I am!  It's a great friendly park, lots of open terrain, and some tech features to keep us honest.  Couple house keeping items:
English Landing is a very public park. Lots of regular park users will be there (not knowing a race is going on).  Please be kind and courteous to these small town folks. I've lived in Parkville my entire life and I want to come back and race here next year!
Parking: Please park in the large parking lot by the farmers market.  We all have bikes, and we are all perfectly capable of riding them to registration.  There is absolutely no parking inside the park.
Bathrooms: There are 4 brand new ports by the bridge (boat ramp) to use.  The others have been locked and winterized.
Food: We'll have a handful of chili crock pots, but don't be afraid to visit some local eateries while you're up this way.  Favorites: Parkville Coffee, Franks, Riverbend, Rusty Horse (up by my shop, Cycle City).
I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow! Come ready to race!

Points and such

2 more days kids.  Sorry about the confusion a couple days ago.  Race is at English Landing Park in downtown Parkville!  Super fast and fun venue.
Points:
1/2: Shchmalz and Coe are a ways ahead but with those guys probably racing at jingle, it's up to Britton Kusiak (22 points) and Brian West (16 points) to make it up!
Cat 3: With Jake out of the ball game and Jack Funk man'ing up, it's anybodies game, most notable Aaron Sims
Cat 4: Just got word that James Taylor will be out of town, he was crushing the 4's.  Now it's up to Tim Michael (19 points) and Matt Smith (17 points) to duke it out!
40+: Eric Burch (42 points) stole the jersey from Richard Hu (33) after Hu decided to play hookie from bc4.  It's Eric's series and jersey to lose!
50+: Songer has it wrapped up unless he heads up to JC, then Lucas is only 14 points behind with 46 total points.  Fun racing here!
SS: Britton has raced strong all season to amass 3 wins at BC.  He's off the front with 45 points, but Unruh and Williams will give him a fight to the finish!
Women's 1/2/3: Karen has a 7 point lead over Sarah Worthington (49-42), but with Karen headed North this weekend it might be Sarah's jersey to steal back after missing bc3
Women's 4: Been a close battle all season, but it's currently lead by Katie Kelter (30-28) over Tanya Hoffman Stevens. 
Women's 40+: Wanda Simchuck has managed 4 wins over Wendy G. and leads 60-44.  Barbara Wages is close behind with 38 and Jean Lucas at 34 points.  Great racing ladies!

I'll have full points posted at the races this weekend! Points are awarded to the top 10.  Break down is as follows: 15, 12, 10, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

See you Saturday!!
