Cult Cross

Either this is the first CX of 2010 or the last of the previous 09 season....

Full Details

For those of you planning on racing Cult Cross 2010, the race is ON. The reason you do not see it on the ACA Calender is because the ACA is just too difficult for a grassroots race like Cult Cross to deal with. By the time I pay all their fee's, join the clubs, pay for officials, pay for insurance, etc, the race just ends up being a pile of work for free. Hence, Cult Cross will be run independent of any sanctioning body this year under an independent insurance carrier. Stay tuned here for start times and other details, but we are on for April 3rd. The biggest problem for me with the ACA was that I asked for six dates to do two races, the fact that I do not want to travel to Denver due to work and other restraints puts me behind the 8 ball and the ACA will not sanction competing races on the same day even though I am 2.5 hours away from the front range. Promoters are cannabalizing one another every weekend for dates of events, and Cult Cross really has no weight as it makes very little money for the ACA. I'm about having fun at a fun event and keeping it affordable, I can not do this through the ACA.

To Sanction...or not..to Sanction

Had to reply to this post as I feel I am in the same situation. We are looking at doing some CycloCross events here in Las Vegas...I know what your thinking.."Las Vegas?" hey, Cross-Vegas planted a seed, what can I say. I am one of a few promoters, but no one yet doing cyclo cross. I understand the "sanctioning" dilemma.
Would love to chat offline about this.
