Alma GP racers!

I hope your winter riding, running, skiing, or eating season is going well and you're doing whatever it is that you love to do!
We've been hard at work setting up for a great 2015 event, which is once again slated to kick off the 2015 Michigan 'cx season on Saturday, September 12 (the first Saturday after Labor Day). Sponsors are signing on and other new things are always in the works to make this a great event for you and your family.

On the Alma GP Facebook page ( the latest post covers the "rules" (I use that term loosely...) for the opportunity to win an entry to this year's Alma GP! Simply make the best picks for the top FIVE elite men and elite women for this weekend's world championships, and you win! How easy is that?
Please share this with anyone you think might be interested in racing at the Alma GP later this year. After all the work we did late this fall I'm itching to get back out there and make the course even smoother than it already is. We're also in the process of making one pretty great staircase run-up, with the possibility of yet another depending on the availability of materials and time.
As always, if you get a chance, please support the sponsors that support the Alma GP!

Snow and Sponsors

Well winter finally hit the mid-Michigan area - there's currently enough snow around here to set your own XC tracks in the local parks. Unfortunately that means my 'cx fix is currently coming from live streaming of the European races and following up on the latest news in the industry.

If you haven't yet done so, please take a moment to stop by the SPONSORS page (or just look to the sidebar on the left of this page) and support those that support this event. Additionally, I've updated the MEDIA page as well, which now includes a link to the Cyclocross Down Under podcast where coach Jeff and I talk about the Alma GP. Also added to the Media page is Brian Harville's first lap in the Elite Masters 45+ race from last year. Man, those dry dusty days seem long behind us...

If you're not already following @TheAlmaGP on Twitter, do so! I always post sponsorship updates both there and on the race Facebook page. I'm sure lots will be happening in the coming months, so thanks in advance for supporting this race as well as all of the sponsors that support the event!
