& word is that portos are en route.
Just got off the phone with Michael from Swamp Thing - things are a "go" but just have been hectic lately.

Michael's SoA Facebook page:
Standings will be updated as soon as I get converged results from the Lake Orion C- and B- fields!
Remember the SoA series will wrap up with a SANDY (and snowy?) race in Midland on December 9!
Stomach of Anger/Swamp Thing II this weekend? I haven't heard a peep. Somebody asked me today about updates because they couldn't find any.
Big weekend coming up for Michigan 'cross...
Tailwind is hosting the next Stomach of Anger race on SATURDAY at Lake Orion High School! Sunday is the second day of the Tailwind double header (but only Saturday's race is in the SoA series).
Information from Tailwind:
Updated Stomach of Anger series standings through Mad Anthony:
I concur w.r.t. Kensington; I could only make it out for day 1. Since sleep and training have both been a challenge to come by, I'm only entering my second race this weekend at Mad Anthony. I'm stoked to get over to Ft. Wayne as I missed out last year. Racing with the masters B group was fun and a more realistic field for me.
Ok... so we the CX season is more than under way?! What does everyone think?
Racing seems to have been pretty good in the Tailwind series.
Kensington about killed me, but Lower Huron was awesome!
The fifth annual Keweenaw Cup is on for Oct. 20 & 21 in Copper Harbor. Two days of racing, music, and mayhem. Details at http://www.keweenawcup.com
Updated Stomach of Anger series standings through Swamp Thing #1:
Next up is Mad Anthony on 10/20 followed by Tailwind's LOHS Saturday race on 10/27!
I didn't have a problem with having the B's as one group. Like I said before, 40 or 50 guys isn't out of the norm for a CX race. I think that Bryan is trying to allure more people by having smaller classes.
Passing people adds to the challenge when starting behind the 39 under.
Interesting post Adam. The B over 40 group is still pretty big even after the split. From my perspective (back of the pack) the racing experience is the same as before the split. The races are still fun and they still hurt just the same as always.
I’d be more than happy to transfer the first row of the B over 40s to the Masters though. I would do better in the rankings without having to actually get faster…
On another note, I was stranded at the course after the Saturday race so I hung around and helped a bit with the course changes for the next day’s race. I had never given any thought to how much physical effort, time, and skull-sweat the race promoters put in to designing and setting up the whole thing. I usually just show up, race and go home. My hat is off to Tailwind, Stomach of Anger, and Kisscross for putting so much time into our hobby and still dealing with their day jobs during the week.
