I am working on a program for local licensed mechanics, but I also wanted to pass along info about pro tech support. We have a branch of the SRAM neutral tech support based in the Sacramento area, run by Chad Contreras. He is frequently available for hire to provide support at local races (pending conflicts with national events e.g. Amgen).
For a fee+travel costs an event can get a pro mechanic with tools etc. and neutral equipment. I think that this would be a real asset at races, particularly criteriums with large turnout. It improves the production values of the event, and is a help for the riders. Some of you have seen him at San Rafael, or the Pilarcitos cx races.
If anybody wants more detailed costs and contact info, contact me via email: email@example.com
