Darius Sampey is working on

Darius Sampey is working on our flyer now.  I do know work has been crazy busy for him, but he assured me that he would have it completed by the end of next week.  I can say with certainty, the show will go on.  Please come down and race with your southern brothers.

BR Battle Weather

The weather looks like it will be perfect for Sunday's race!  The high Sunday is 75 degrees, and there is only a very slight chance of rain for the remainder of this week. We did get some rain over the weekend, but I believe it will only improve trail conditions.  It was getting pretty dry and dusty out there.  So, if you haven't already, please register and come race with us this weekend.  Remember, the first 100 people to register get a commemorative pint glass.  After they're gone, all we'll have left is sympathy for your procrastinating ways.

As of 9:00 this morning, we
As of 9:00 this morning, we have 64 pre-registered riders.  Thank you to each and every one of you.  Having such a large portion of racers pre-register will really make our lives a bit easier this weekend.  

Again, we sincerely thank you all.

One more very important
One more very important announcement . . . The Baton Rouge Battle is an SCRCS race (as well as a LAXC series race).  Please don't forget your SCRCS number plate, or we will have to charge you $5 for a new one.  If you haven't raced any of the SCRCS races this year, you will get a number plate at no cost.  

Still not sure?  The following have been SCRCS races this year:

March 24 -25 Bonita Lakes, Meridian MS. 
April 21-22 LocoFest, Shreveport LA.
May 5-6 Mt Zion Dust n Bones, Brookhaven MS.
Sept 22-23 Clear Creek Challenge, Oxford MS.

The race course is now


The race course is now extremely well-marked, in Braille. We've removed a ton of face-slappers, and blown the trail clean of leaves. Even if you have no intentions of racing, you should go check it out. 

To all of you who've pre-registered, AND to those of you planning to register this weekend, PLEASE help us minimize our race morning stress, and ensure that we can start on time, by coming out Saturday evening to finalize your registration (sign your waiver, etc.)

We look forward to seeing you at the race.

Message from BRB Race Director

Racers,


The weather is looking great for the weekend here in Baton Rouge with predicted temperature of around 60F Sunday morning. All the weather websites I looked at show very little to no chance of rain. Should be awesome racing conditions.


The Comite trails are in great shape due to the tireless work of BRAMBA and the (W)reck.less Racing team. We plan to get out this evening and begin marking and taping off the course for pre-riding on Saturday. There will also be painted arrows on the ground at critical intersections where there is a possibility the tape could be knocked down or cut.


BIG FAVOR NEEDED IF POSSIBLE


We will be set up to get racers checked in and their waivers signed around 4PM Sat until dark. This is very important as we need as many racers checked in as possible on Saturday(especially Cat 3 and Jr) due to the 8AM start time for Cat 3. It will allow us to get as many entrants into the computer for timing as possible before Sunday morning which will be a rush as we only have 1 hr of daylight before the Cat 3 races start. Cat 1 and 2 can wait until after the Cat 3 are done and racing. We'll have about an hour and a half before you go off, so if possible, let the Cat 3 racers register 1st Sunday morning.


For everyone who pre-registered online (THANKS!) we will already have your USAC waiver printed and ready for your signature. For those of you with USAC licenses, please make certain you have it ready as well as a photo ID.


I have included a trail map with the route the race will take.


If you have an urgent question, feel free to call my cell. If it's a general question, please email me and I will respond as quick as possible via cell phone or computer.


Look forward to seeing everyone on the trails this weekend.


Oh, and please tell your buddies to sign up online today before 10PM when online registration closes and the entry fee goes up $5.

message from injured rider

A message from the rider injured at the Baton Rouge Battle:

"Many thanks to Johnny Smith and Rodney Dudley for staying with me until the paramedics took me to the hospital. I was released from the hospital yesterday with minor damage to two vertebrae. Have to report back to the neurosurgeon in 3 weeks and can not ride for 3 weeks. The front rim of the bike was badly damaged during the accident. Cant wait to get back on the bike and start racing again. Thanks again for the immediate care by the race director and all the special attention given to get me to the hospital asap. It was a great day for racing, hope everyone did well. Will see everyone at the South Central Regional Championship race in Ridgeland!"

Glad you are ok, get those

Glad you are ok, get those verts and rim fixed up and see you at the starting line again real soon.

Okay, I think I might have
Okay, I think I might have had enough time to gather my thoughts, now.  It took another delicious Schneider Weisse, plenty of time and sleep, and another ride out at Comite yesterday afternoon to reminisce.

First, thank you to all of the racers who came out to support our race.  It was great to see all of you again, and we sincerely appreciate you for helping us host a great event.  The sportsmanship was great, and the competition was fierce.  LOCO, Mt. Zion, and Team Eastbank, as always, showed up in large numbers.  A special thanks to all of you.

Another big thank you to goes out to the BRAMBA crew for the never-ending work you do to keep Comite an awesome place to ride.  Every year, we get positive feedback from out-of-towners who really love Comite.  It's a unique trail, and sometimes I forget how lucky we are to have such a great place to ride, so close to home.  Also, again this year, several of you helped us during the race.  Your help was needed and very appreciated

Thank you to the (W)reck.less crew, and all of our sponsors, for coming together and putting on an awesome race.  Several of you helped pre-race to spit-shine the trail, and many more showed up on race weekend to ensure we had a flawless race.  This is the 3rd year that we've hosted the BRB, and I think we really nailed this one.  Again, thanks to all of you.

Also, thanks to Raising Cane's for letting us borrow your PA system and a few members of your team.  We've never hosted this race without a little behind the scenes support from you guys, and we appreciate it greatly.

Thank you to the SCRCS and the LAXCS for allowing us to be a part of both series.  We had many riders come over from MS and AL, and we have the SCRCS to thank for that.  Special thanks to Revolution Cycles for continuing to support regional racing.  Thanks to the LA racers who again showed up in full-force.  The LAXCS is growing fast, and it is an awesome sight to see!  

The more appreciation I show, the more people I realize are vital to ensuring a race goes smoothly.  To all of our friends and family members who so selflessly allow us to play in the dirt, thank you, thank you, thank you.  Hopefully, you never force us to grow up. 

Finally, thank you, Darius for being a top-notch race director, teammate, and friend.  I'd hate to imagine trying to host a race without your masterful puppetry. Good job, sir!

Official Results - Baton Rouge Battle

"1st of all, THANKS to all the racers, friends and family that came out to the 2012 Baton Rouge Battle. We had a record turnout with record fun had by all.


Here is the link to the USAC online results. If you find anything out of order please let me know. The spreadsheet had to be done manually and I hope I got everything in the right order.

Look forward to seeing everyone next year.
