Welcome

Team Magic series third race is once again held where CX got its start in Alabama - Oak Mountain State Park.  Venue is back at the Fishing Lake area. 

History of CX:  Cyclocross started in France, yet Belgium remains the most popular CX race country.  The origins of the sport are depicted in the European style of our logo. The Lion of Flanders, from the flag of Belgium, was used by our graphic designer and CX racer Scott Thigpen as a guide.  You will notice that the lions in our logo are a fierce bunny and goat. Within the shield are the 3 sports that make up Team Magic Professional Multisport Events. The bunny is to illustrate the "Magic" of Team Magic and the goat is our Team Magic CX mascots "Flanders & Clarine" - who will be at every race (provided rain is NOT in the forecast).  

So why a Team Magic CX events in Alabama?  We are going back to the roots of cyclocross in Alabama.  The original CX series in Alabama started over 25 years ago at Oak Mountain State Park.  Team Magic owners Therese Bynum and Faye Yates, as well as several Team Magic members, participated in these races. We welcome the opportunity to bring our style of race management to CX and offer a fun, adventurous series. Check out the CX video hereSports Illustrated supported 2015 CX Nationals with coverage.
