would you be a good race announcer?
At the 1st Annual PG&E Criterium, we are going to try something different...
So, do you think you could hang with Phil and Paul? Do you scoff at Dave Towle and yearn for a shot at calling a live race?!?! Or maybe you've wondered, hmmm, if Dave Silva and Al Trautwig, got paid for THAT, where do I sign up?
Answer: Right here! We at Tri Valley Velo are willing to give TWO or THREE of you a chance to co-announce* your choice of fields on May 8th. All you need to do is pick a field (or two) below, and explain WHY we should give you a chance. Nice voice, broadcast experience, cool European accent, inside knowledge of the top and/or typical racers and teams, a suitcase full of interesting verbal analogies, whatever.
Winners will be selected by an informal and subjective process based on the strength of your message. We are also willing to entertain that you nominate someone - who would you LIKE to hear announce, and why? Of course, they have to be willing to do it...
Oh, and the winners will get ONE FREE RACE REGISTRATION (may be transferred to a different rider) and LUNCH.
So, have at it!
