Alabama’s First Hundie: The Oak Ass 100

THIS JUST IN

This bit of news just came into xxcmag.com via the digital grape vine….

Chain Buster Racing will be hosting Alabama’s first hundie! The first annual Oak Ass 100 (and 50) will take place on Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. Chain Buster Racing sends out a huge thanks to Birmingham Urban Mountain Pedalers (BUMP) and John Karrasch for creating and maintaining this great trails system and race course.

The difference between the Oak Ass 50/100 and the Battle For Oak Mountain is that Oak Ass uses 90% of the trails available at Oak Mountain vs the 10%-15% used by Battle For Oak Mountain.

An “official” GPS track of the course will be be posted next week. More information to come soon, so stay tuned to chainbusterracing.com and bump.org.

Believe me I am not one to ever complain about there being too many races for folks to choose from, but I just wonder if the amount of races in the series helps or hurts it?  I ask this of both racers and promoters. Hmm…. Thoughts?

In any event, it is awesome to see so many races. Don’t forget to check out XXC’s 2013 Race Calendar which is growing daily and full of XCM, XXC, hundies, stage races and multi-day ultras!
