Bully Otter Sports attended the first Arkansas cyclocross race of 2010 in Fort Smith. This was a brand spank'n new race, and for a first year event I loved it. We lucked out and got a little rain prior to the race. It made the course a little nasty, but mainly just sticky. I think I overheard Carl from Champion Cycling saying there were 52 racers. There ended up being four starts in all. Most of the footage covers the race for first, second, third, and fourth of the Open CX race, but there is a little bit of the cat 4 beginners in there too. Sorry that there is no footage of the masters of cat3 and 4, but that is when I took a stab at it.(No such luck, but had a blast) Hope you enjoy!
We plan to bring you weekly races leading up to the Arkansas State Championship on Dec. 4. Remember cyclocross is soon to be big in the "AR", so the sooner you join the fun the better!!
Next weekend we will be heading over to Memphis to check out their race seen.
