**Bombers Race**

NO RACE BIKES! Oak City Cycling along with Berger Hardware Bikes will be host to CX Central's first ever BOMBERS race on September 10th at 4:20PM at Spring Hill.

What's a bombers race, you say? Basically it is weird, off-the-wall fun for 30 minutes. Ride whatever you want! The jankier the better. Ride a beach cruiser, cargo bike, road bike with 23c tires, folding bike, penny farthing, bike-share bike, tall bike, WHATEVER! All we ask is that you keep your race worthy CX, SSCX, and/or mountain bikes out of it! Prizes will be awarded to worst bike, best dressed, biggest smile, and whatever we make up in the moment. This is a USA Cycling sanctioned event and bicycles need to comply with the safety rules that USAC outlines.

Participation is $10 to cover general costs and licensing. Register at pre-reg.com or day-of. Remember, NO RACE BIKES. Let's get weird

New to Cyclocross?

This series is designed as a fun and welcoming series catering to all types of racers. Most importantly Cross Central is designed as a relaxed but competitive race series with an encouraging and fun atmosphere that should cater well to the beginning racer that wants to try cyclocross racing.  Beginners who may be considering racing cross but do not own a cyclocross specific bike are always welcome to use mountain bikes (without bar ends) and should find this a great series to find mentors and start a first race.

If you are new to cyclocross and have any questions/concerns, please send an email to macamp0328(at)gmail.com.
