It was a lot of fun last year, and people reacted very well to the competition, so we've decided to continue presenting it. In fact, we hope that some of the crits who didn't get on board in 2008 will also present the prize:

For the 2009 road racing season, Cycles Gladiator Wine and Cycle Circus will once again proudly present the 'Uninhibited Racer Awards' for the most "aggressive" racers in each of the categories at participating criteriums in the Northern California region.

Throughout the 2009 racing season, Cycles Gladiator Wine and Cycle Circus will offer a bottle of their fine vintage wine for each of the adult categories of participating criterium races to the rider whose performance in that race best exemplified the vivacious, uninhibited style of a true "Cycles Gladiator."

The winners will be judged by criteria to be set by the individual race promoters. The wine will be awarded at the conclusion of the race. All racers may compete for the title, but only racers 21 years of age or older are eligible for the wine prize.

The winners' names will be recorded on a special web page devoted to the competition, hopefully with some pictures of the Gladiators in "combat."

Teams and promoters who wish to have their event included in the 2009 competition should contact Zebraman at There is neither cost nor obligation to have the awards for your event.

Dedicated to having MORE FUN ... oh yeh, baby..... CYCLES GLADIATOR WINE and CYCLE CIRCUS!!
