If anyone knows the start time, please post. Also, I take it from the discussion below that race#1 is at Blackhawk. I'm trying to decide on gearing, so could somebody who is familiar please describe the course?

I'm so sorry I forgot to bring hardcopies for you this weekend!

Registration and course pre-ride starts at 10am; registration is CASH ONLY ($15) as they pay out from registration.

Women/Citizen/Juniors/Single Speed/Tandem (??? How do you shoulder THAT??) at 11am

Masters at 12pm (40 thru 70 yrs old)

"B" RAce (Cat 4-5/Sport) at 1pm (40mins)

"A" RAce (Cat 1-3/Pro) at 2:00pm

Yes, the course is at Blackhawk; I would guess you'd be safe with gearing 12-25 this week (if 42 in front; 21 if 39 chainring) as it shouldn't be soupy muddy. Forecast is rain, though.....hahahahahahahah

Be sure to get there early enough to pre-ride before first race. I'm going to pin a flyer to my jersey so I remember to give it to you!

Tip #1: bring garbage bags to put dirty clothes and shoes into. Buy bulk "Shout" stain remover. Pre-soak everything. ;)

see you sunday!
How come nothing was sent in the mail?greg n

I've gotten all the flyers in the mail in past years. This is the first I've heard of the race on the 28th.
they can deliver anthrax, but not race flyers?rollo tommassi

I had to call the promoter three times to see if he'd mailed them yet. Each time I had to give him my address,as if he'd not remembered the last time i'd called. harumph!

He doesn't have email or a fax, so what a pain.

I have a hardcopy here at the office, so I can fax it to you or I can send you a PDF. via email.

Let me know i'd be more than happy to send either way.
Please shoot me a PDFgreg n
