FIRST AND FOREMOST....All Midwest CX Stitch awards will be handed out at the after CX party Saturday night, beginning at 7:30, HR Lounge. You must be present to win.
DAY OF RACE PRIZES....
In the combined 3/4 field, Flatwater Cycling has contributed a BONUS pay-out to the top 3 finishers. $50, $30, $20. This is in addition to the race day payout for the top 5 finishers of the Women's Open ($100, $75, $50, $40, $35). So, if you were the first cat 3 or cat 4 across the line and got third place overall, you'd get $100 dollars for your effort.
First 3 places in EACH cat 4 and cat 3....
Thanks to Trek Bicycles of Omaha, Kansas City & St. Louis, there are gift certificates worth $100, $75 and $50 for the top three finishers in EACH category.
She who makes CX look like the most fun.... If you're not having fun, you shouldn't be doing it and we want to recognize racers who are really diggin' it.
The woman with Skillz doesn't come by those out of the blue. She works at it.
One freakin' gear...this chick either likes less complicated or simply makes the most of what she's got. ROCK ON.
Now to mix it up.....on Hooligan's Hill
- Best Costume (prize table)
- Match Race ($25 prime) - If you are neck and neck with another woman, pay attention to the spectators. Conrad Castañeda who hosts the Mundo Latino radio show will let you know you've been selected for the match race. The back round the course to Hooligan's Hill wins the prime.
- Lanterne Rouge ($25 prime) - Anyone can race around like a mad woman, but it takes measured discipline to be chill and enjoy the hand-ups. Most laps down wins this one.
- Grindcore Memorial Jump In Headfirst Award - With a bike like that, it's obvious you can't resist a dare. This goes to whoever has the MOST inappropriate bike for cyclocross. (Grindcore's first effort was on a fixed roadie.) (prize table)
- Crowd Favorite - What would CX be without the spectators? Give 'em something to holler about. There will be a ballot box on Hooligan's Hill. (prize table)
We're doing it prize table style. You will get to choose what you when. We just pick in which order.
- Top three places category 3 (1st - Jersey + Prize Table)
- Top three places category 4 (1st - Jersey + Prize Table)
- Single-speed (1st - Jersey + Prize Table)
- Makes CX Look Most Fun
