Cyclocross Bicycle Races:

  • Why the Bubba Pre-Memorial?  Big Shark Division Four Cyclist Butthead (aka- Josh Johnson)- last year's series 1st Second Place winner recieved a dog, Bubba.  Butthead thought Bubba was a puppy, which it/he is definitely not. Actually, many people at first mistake Bubba for some sort of Hog, but that is a different issue entirely. Although we enjoy Bubba we do not think Bubba is going to live past another cross season. We really don't.  He is NOT a puppy.  So this series is dedicated to Butthead's soon to be late dog. We'll miss ya Bubba.
  • When? Select Saturdays and Sundays in October, November, and December 
  • DId you know? Big Shark Bicycle Company sells Felt, Surly, Redline, Bianchi, Scott, Alan, Cannondale, Kona and Ridley Cyclocross bikes. We thought you might want to know.

To Jefferson Barracks Park and the Lee's Shelter:

From Highway 270 South heads towards the appropriately named Jefferson Barracks (JB) Bridge. Exit at Telegraph Ave. North (left) and follow for about 2 miles until you see the sign for Jefferson Barracks on your right.  Follow to Park (left at cemetary-don't enter) and follow signs to Lee's Shelter- which is toward towards the river on the eastern side of the park. The roads into the park are a bit windy with a few turns- don't be afraid. The venue rocks.
