Changes to Aug race schedule ( including the Dist RR)
There are some important changes to some of the races scheduled for next month that everyone needs to be aware of. Please pass this Info onto your friends who aren't on this list.
The Race at Fort Ord on Sat Aug 5th has been cancelled. They are doing controlled burns in the area and several roads normally used for the race will be closed to all traffic on that weekend. The only roads available would have left us with an unsuitable race on an out and back course that would have been of questionable safety.
THE DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP FOR CAT 1/2 MEN AND WOMEN AND CAT 4 MEN AND 17-18 JUNIORS HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE PATTERSON ROAD RACE ON AUG 12TH.
The Winters road race scheduled for Aug 18th is being replaced with another road race similar to the old Dunnigan Hills race. A section of the downhill section of the Winters course was washed out last winter leaving a section of gravel. For safety reasons it was decided not to run the race over the gravel section. The new race will start in Yolo and run clockwise around a 38 mile loop that will include several of the roads used in the old Dunnigan Hills race.
The Santa Nella road race scheduled for Sept 2nd will probably be replaced with a new road race in Yuba county. The new race will feature lots of climbing. More details will be available after Aug 2nd.
At the Giro di San Francisco the Junior race has been replaced by a separate race for Cat 3 women.
