In case you haven't seen this, Chris Aitken and Tom Chapman, both of the Focus Attaquer Cycling Team, made a trip to Alma on one of their "off" weekends while in the U.S.! Here's their post-visit video from #AussiesInAlma2016...enjoy!

Race venue map, camping & food!

Take a look at the above map of the venue. Parking (if you're early) can be found in the lot to the right (East) of the big bus garage. If you have a Kuat Rack on your car, please feel free to park in the VIP Parking area by proceeding through the orange cones that will mark a path (next to the kid's course).

If you're late to the venue, you'll likely need to park to the north or south of the road that you drive in on. I'll have a small number of parking helpers on hand to guide your way!

Don't forget about the ProGold pit area and bike wash (located next to the Alma Transportation Center) - the forecast is looking wet, so don't go home with a dirty bike!

We're also excited to have a great wood-fired pizza vendor on site for race day! Plan your race day food options accordingly, and don't forget to stop by the Alma Brewing Company later on for $1 off pints (show your bib number)!

Name that beer! Contest is open!

Thanks to the Alma Brewing Company we're once again partnering to run a "name that beer" contest! Entries are due by Monday, September 5 (Labor Day) at 5:00 p.m. EST. Post your beer name(s) to the appropriate post on the Alma GP Facebook page HERE! Enter as many times as you want, but make sure to read the comments above your entry as to not double up on someone's intellectual property...
This year the special batch is described as "Belgian golden ale, light hint of a bubble gum flavor, with a sweet floral finish..." Basically awesome!

Don't forget, on Friday, September 9, and Saturday, September 10 (race day!) they will once again be running food and beer specials ($1 off pints with your bib number!) for racers - SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
