Cyclocross Bicycle Races:

First - a bit of History. Why the Bubba Memorial?  Big Shark "Veteran Racer" Butthead (aka- Josh Johnson)- a previous season's A Race winner received a dog a long, long time ago named "Bubba."  Butthead thought Bubba was a puppy, which it/he was definitely not. Actually, many people at first mistook Bubba for some sort of Hog, (perhaps a razorback?), but that is a different issue entirely. Although we enjoyed Bubba we did not think Bubba was going to live past another cross season. We really didn't.  He was NOT a puppy.  So this series is dedicated, again, to Bubba. Sadly, Bubba passed away a few summers ago- despite being commemorated for the past decade. We'll miss ya Bubba, although in truth he really had exceeded all of our expectations by remaining somewhat alive for as long as he did. He was adorable, albeit weird.

When? Select Saturdays and Sundays in October, November, and December 

What? Cyclocross features a perfect blend of mountain biking and road bike racing - plus a few skills unique to the sport. It's a great way to spend the day outdoors as the seasons change - and keep your competitive edge. Lots of cowbell.  Each race is under an hour - and we allow athletes to self-select their category based on fitness, competency, and what they did the night before.

Did you know? Big Shark Bicycle Company carries Cannondale, Raleigh, Giant, Surly, All City, Kona, MOOTS, and other super awesome cyclocross bikes. Yep.

Daily Prizes: Over $660 Prize List Each Day, $7260 for the series.

Special Prizes: Kounter  Kulture is a carry out restaurant offering a locally sourced Asian menu. Clean proteins, local rice, convenient, sustainable fuel. They are going to be offering $5 Off Vouchers to the winners each week of the Women's B, Masters Overall, and Men's Category C racers.

Overall Series Prize: The individual man, woman, or child with the highest point total (regardless of category) will win a $2000 Training Vacation to The Cycling House in Tucson, Arizona.

Overall Winner of the Men's and Women's "A" Race will win free entry for the following season.

Overall Winner of the "B" Race will win a fabulous set of something fabulous. Stay tuned!

Overall Winner of the Masters Races will win a fabulous set of something fabulous. Really. Men/Women

Overall Winner of the "C" Race, Women's "B", and the Single Speed category will win something worthy of your titan efforts. No. You won't win a pup named "Bubba". Nice try though.
