Greetings, the City has kindly done a first pass at sweeping the mighty course. Our plan is to get out there in the coming week to tidy it up a little more.
As usual to take part in any activity put on by Midweek Mayhem you must be a Alberta Bicycle Association Member (this includes our Learn To Ride nights).
Registration for the Mayhem opens on Zone4.ca on April 29th, with the first races to be held on May 13. Check out the race schedule under the Crit Series Link.
Learn to Crit # 1 will be held on May6th.
Learn to Crit # 2 will be on May 12th.
Did I mention the Learn To Crit nights are FREE :)
You must sign up in advance for the Learn To Ride Clinics on Zone4. We are limiting each Learn To Crit night to 25 people so get on it! Our clinics are highly recommended for all new riders and anyone who needs an early season refresher. Each evening includes discussion about proper crit racing technique and strategies along with riding some laps around the course. Each session will last around 1 hr and are hosted by experienced racers.
For 2014 we will continue to have Race Chaperons riding with the Women’s Group and the C Group. The Chaperons will help give out race pointers in real time during the races.
All Mayhem events are very dependant on the weather co-operating. Please stay tuned to this blog or our Twitter feed (@midweekmayhem) for any last minute cancellations.
Please remember we always need help with Marshal’s around the course. Even if your not racing, coming out and lending a hand on course can be a great way to learn more about crit racing.
thx, and cya out there
