Registration has officially opened on SBO for the Palo Alto Bicycles 2008 "Ronde van Brisbeen" presented by Kaiser-Permanente. A few new twists have been added to the weekend, principally switching the traditional dates for the Criterium and Circuit races.
Team Oakland and Pilarcitos Cyclesports have always placed their priority on rider safety at the Brisbane Highlands Circuit Race making sure delivery trucks and riders are never on the same page. Held on Saturday since 2004, the heavy volume of semi-truck traffic is significantly lighter on sunday and the City of Brisbane is much happier if we switch dates for our venues. 2008 RvB will present the "Sierra Point Criterium" on saturday, March 29th and the finale, "Brisbane Highlands Circuit Race", will occur on Sunday, March 30th.
We'll be presenting the traditional Girl Scout "Thin Mint" cookies to our podium guests, as well as a continually expanding prize list. And a very special offer for the first 150 riders who sign up for the whole weekend - commemorative cloth cycling caps in Green and Black - the full retro "Ronde van Brisbeen" experience.
