Last Race of the Season(4 posts)

Last Race of the Seasonallervite

Now that daylight savings time is about to change, I was wondering if any of you guys/girls out there have an end of the season, unofficial race. We call ours the Wednesday Night World Championship. It's for big time local bragging rights. Shirt has a real shot at winning it if he is still riding.

It's a short intense hilly road race. There are five intermediate sprints. First place is worth 3 points, second is 2 and third is 1. The last sprint is double points.

I have never won the damn thing, but I have come close.

Our is called the Tuesday Night World Championship - what a coincidence. It's a 1+ mile crit in an industrial park. Next Tuesday is the last of the season and I expect a rocket-ride as the power guys flex their legs for one last time.

We also have a points system leading to a yellow jersey. Usually the jersey owner refuses to wear it because it makes him a marked man (I say he because it's always been a guy so far).

We're ending the evening with beer. That seems appropriate.

We have an above 45 and below 45 category along with a women's category. Last year we had about $800. in prizes.
Thanks, but shirt has not been riding :-( (nm)shirt
