June 18 Mayhem race order is B group then C group starting at 7pm. BRING BUG SPRAY! Also stay tuned to Facebook and to our twitter feed for any last minute cancelation based on the weather. Please come out and volunteer to marshal a spot on the course, I have treats for everyone who helps
No onsite registration. Registration on Zone4 will close at 3 pm tomorrow so we can print paperwork for tomorrow night. Come early to sign waivers and get your Midweek number for 2013.
Our weather policy is “if it’s wet we cancel” so stay tuned to Facebook and our Twitter feed for details if the weather doesn’t cooperate tomorrow.
C and B groups racing tonight
cya out there…
We always need help with Course Marshals. We need up to 10 people per race. If you volunteer, you will be able to grab some sweet swag provided by Sean S at ROAD – powered by Calgary Cycle.
Zone 4 is still open till tomorrow night until 8pm. If your a C or B rider you have until then to sign up for this week. I will reopen registration again after the races on Tuesday night. If enough B riders sign up I will split the group in half and email everyone tomorrow night to tell you what B group you are riding in. Both B groups will ride Tuesday night, just separately.
The goal in dividing the B group is to allow a little more room out on the road for everyone to manoeuvre. After Pigeon Lake, I know a lot of people are a little freaked out about crashes. The Midweek Crits are a great opportunity to hone your pack riding skills. We brought back the C Group a couple of seasons back to specifically help out people who are new to pack racing.
Hope to see everyone Tuesday night.
The Contractor has assured me baring constant rain he will have the road patched in time for next week. Next week the race order is C Group, B1, and B2. Zone 4 is open for registration, but will close again temporarily at 8pm on Monday June 3 so that I can split the B group in half. I will then email the B Groupers to say what B Group you are in.
We will need course marshals, please come out and volunteer. All volunteers will be able to choose a prize from the PRIZE BAG!!!!
Registration will reopen late Tuesday night. So if your a C Group or B Group rider you have until 8pm Monday to sign up for this coming week.
The road still has holes in it. NO CRITS THIS WEEK. I am still trying to talk with someone at the City, can’t imagine more rain is gonna help…
Well the dude doing the work on the course didn’t get back to me. As of today it looks like the work is mostly done, but they haven’t quite patched all the holes they made. There will be NO CRIT this week. I will adjust the schedule and hope to get started on the 28th. Stay tuned for details of registration getting re opened sometime this week.
So here’s the scoop regarding the construction on the course. I talked with the dude responsible for digging the holes yesterday, as he happened to be standing in one of them. He says it is a short job, meaning hopefully not taking more than this week to complete. I will be touching base with him by weeks end looking for an update. The goal is to re open registration this weekend, with the hopes of still running the C, and two B races next week. Stay tuned….
Learn To Crit is a GO for tomorrow night. Corner 4 and 1 will have to be soft pedalled. Like last week there will be some chatting followed by some slow lap riding, so the obstacles on the road shouldn’t be too big a problem. Oh ya, tomorrow night is oversubscribed, so if you have contacted me you are in, otherwise you are out.
