Dear BMR sponsors,

The 2007/'08 cross season is officially here. We even had the opportunity to start a couple of weeks early with the new Livermore CX series, courtesy of Shane at Livermore BMX. It's great to see other disciplines in cycling see the benefit of putting on cross to fill their otherwise empty Winter calendars.

The team used a shotgun approach early in September, sending myself and Janel to Livermore, while Trina and Edwin tackled the race in Truckee and Sacramento. Trina and Edwin also made the journey to Interbike-Las Vegas to check out the cycling fare, as well as some "heavy" racing in the Elites categories. I think they are still recovering from the smoke and heavy AC of the arena(!).

We look forward to the first race at the Bay Area Superprestige race, where we expect to have the whole team in one place. By the look of things, we are on track for another banner season, picking up right where we left off in January, and making our presence felt at the front of each and every race we suite-up for.

Thank you all for your continued support of Blackmarket Racing.

Mark "Howie" Howland
Team Director
