Big Shark Bicycle Company of St. Louis, Missouri, has announced the return of the Bubba Memorial Cyclocross Series. This year's eight-race series starts Saturday, October 15 with the Ronde von Evergreen in Carbondale, Illinois, and continues the next day at Tilles Park in St. Louis, Missouri. Bubbas will thereafter be held on Sundays until the end of November.
The Bubba Memorial is unique in the world of Cyclo-cross because each race is held in memory of a dog that isn't dead yet. All racers will get the opportunity to meet Bubba, the aforementioned not-yet-dead dog, at the start of the A, B, C, and women's races, and they will also compete for over $5000 in cash and Bianchi prizes.
