"Kelley Acres" Cross - FlyOver Update

Unfortunately we were unable to secure the Thunderbirds for an official fly over. We could not convince Dolly Parton to come sing "God Bless America". This means construction of the "Kelley Acres" Cross Fly Over sponsored by Wheelbase Bikes is getting assembled later this week for the Oct. 4th event. A fly over is a bridge that the racers will ascend up, cross over the race course and decend down the other side. (below is an example, ours is a variation)

Our goal is to make this a fun, exciting and most of all a safe obstacle riders of all abilities will enjoy. If you have never seen or ridden a fly over have no fear it will be super exciting. We will be posting pictures and possibly a few videos of assembly on the weekend.
A few other race updates. The Cat. 1,2,3 Women's field is now paying the top 3 Cat 3 ladies a separate prize list of $150/3 deep in addition to the $700/7 deep in the main field. This makes the total women's prize list more than the men. Thanks to The Bike Rack of D.C. and Team Kenda!
All the Lil' Belgians (9 & under) will get a medal and a pumpkin.
**The GamJams Podium Pageant is going live tomorrow with online voting. There could clearly be some team tactics involved here. Stay tuned!**

Heads Up~ GamJams Podium Opportunity!!!

How many times did Chuck Hutch take your spot on the podium this season? Or Leslie J. or Erin or Fuentes?
Now is your chance to have full podium access for a whole day!!! GamJams and "Kelley Acres" Cross are having a contest. An on-line pageant of sorts, in search of GamJams Podium Candy. This is your chance to be a star. We need one individual to compliment our very own Heidi G. as podium candy. There are a few lite duties along the way but it will be worth it.
Details to be posted early next week but we wanted to give you the holiday weekend to get the creative juices going. What will your platform be? Pictures can be submitted and encouraged.
Remember this GamJams photo of the week from last fall.
2008 Podium girls Ms. Frederick County, Lorena and Ms. Washington County, Anna were one of the highlights of race day! Lorena has moved to Sweden and awaiting the birth of her first child named biggie smalls and Anna is about to enter wedded bliss on the eve of "Kelley Acres" Cross.
The ladies may not be presenting you on the podium THIS year but they are in an executive role on the 2009 GamJams Podium selection committee. The pressure is totally ON to deliver top notch podiumness.
Come on boys and us what you got!
Do you really think Chutch, Fuentes, Silliman or Jennings would try to win this competition?
