* It was lumpy grass at McLaren Park
* It was muddy for the first time at Candelstick Point
* It was dusty and warm under the lights at Sierra Point
* It was the best of all worlds at Golden Gate Park
And it all comes to a 2008 conclusion at the Beach Run at CCCP - Cyclo Cross @ Coyote Point this sunday with Round 5 of the Bay Area Super Prestige Cyclocross Series, presented by Kaiser-Permanente/Team Oakland. And then - our final awards ceremonies for the 2008 season. We will be distributing $20,000 worth of merchandise prizes to our Amateur categories and our "A" Men and Women will have their pay day, too!
Our website has the distribution for final Cat. "A" prize money and as of Golden Gate Park, here are the stats.
"A" Men starters - 184 - that means $1,840 is currently in the prize pot and final payout will be determined by starters at CCCP.
"A" Women starters - 75 - that means $750 is currently in their prize pot with same conditions for final payout as the Men.
We'll have the hand calculator ready to crunch some numbers.
And for our Beginner categories - Men and Women "C"'s - for the first time we'll hold a special raffle for your top prizes in those categories - with every rider present that day eligible for a shot at the gold ring. We'll take your actual race numbers from that day, drop them into the box and draw the winning race number.
See you Sunday for CCCP, Comrades!
