Announcements For Cherry Pie (inc. new junior start info)

Hi ya'all.
We have some news for you about the upcoming Cherry Pie Criterium on February 11 in Napa.

JUNIORS FIELDS CHANGE:
In response to overwhelming disappointment in a lot of junior racers aged 15-18 who got shut out from pre-registration and in consultation with our NCNCA officials, we have expanded the fields AND CHANGED THE START TIMES! SO ATTENTION!!!
We have split the 15-16's from the 17-18's and shortened their races to 20 minutes. The new start times are as follows:

7:40 am - Junior 10-12, 13-14 20 min.
8:10 am - Junior 15-16 20 min.
8:40 am - Junior 17-18 20 min.

THE INFORMATION FOR ALL OTHER FIELDS REMAINS AS IN THE FLYER!

So tell your junior teammates, friends and relatives that we are immediately receiving pre-reg again for all fields.

**************************************

COURSE DIRECTION:
This year for the first time, Cherry Pie will be running COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. There is a good reason relating to traffic control and
the new hotel. There is a right turn (Turn 1) immediately at the bottom of the hill. It's Turn 1, so it's not critical to the outcome of the race, so RIDE IT SAFELY!! It has a very wide set-up, so take it nice and wide. Also, the finishing straight is much longer, as is the final hill. We think that you will find these modifications titilating.

**************************************

AMENITIES:
- Pavement quality is excellent.
- Food from Downtown Joe's Restaurant will be at the site.
- Neutral wheels from Williams Cyclery for all senior races.
- Cytomax and water will be available.
- Cherry Pies and Cycles Gladiator premium wine for all senior podiums. (Of course - it's Napa!)
- Lots of primes!!

**************************************

We think we'll be spared the rain, but prepare for the weather forecast to be accurate. Bring appropriate apparel, don't overinflate, and RIDE SAFE!!
