Hello Racers, registration is open for our May 8th event in Livermore!
We are a first year club but many of us have been racing in the region for a while now. We also have some good collective experience in putting on races - and apparently some good connections for prizes and race support!
As a first year club and race, we had to make some tough decisions about field offerings and after consulting smart women in the know, we opted for a single womens category 4 event. We hope to have great success and be able to extend our day and add fields in the future.
We have already obtained $2000 worth of merchandise prizes and we are still gathering more. Cash only to those hungry E3, 35+1/2/3 and Pro/1/2 fields (not included in the $2000 figure). The first 300 racers and 50-75 kids who race will enjoy a very fine swag bag. Primes? oh yeah! Look for some PG&E cash Power Primes! Also, E3 and 35+1/2/3 can win a free entry into San Jose Bicycle Club's Memorial Day criterium.
I will post some updates to our prize configuration here, but for now, thanks to our race sponsors for merchandise and/or race support:
Pacific Gas & Electric (amazing support including energy efficient compact florescent bulbs in swag bags!)
Cyclepath of Pleasanton
Cytosport (prizes and race site product to keep you hydrated & powered up)
Mission Skincare products (Athlete engineered!)
Also, we support Best Buddies a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Only 11% of their funds go to administrative costs.
See you at the races!
