In preparation for our race, The Pacific Grove Butterfly Criterium on June 5 (http://ghosttreeracing.com/butterfly-criterium.html ), our club, GTR is co-promoting the May 12-edition of the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Twilight Ride Series. This series opens the track from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. one Wednesday per month for casual riding, training and some short races.
Along with local Rabobank executives, Laguna Seca and our club, we were able to convince Rabobank pros Lars Boom and Tom Leezer to come and ride with us May 12 and race the evening races on the Laguna Seca Circuit.
Lars and Tom will race the A race organizing under the Start/Finish Bridge at 6:15 p.m. Two minutes after the A start, a B-level race will begin. Joining the B race will be former Olympic Gold Medalist and World Road Race Champ Hennie Kuiper and former Rabobank Pro, Pedro Horrillo.
To prepare for the huge Butterfly Criterium Kids Race, there will also be a one-lap kids race at Laguna Seca that evening. That will start under the Start/Finish bridge at 6:00 p.m.
Cost is $10, with a portion of the proceeds going to SCRAMP charities. More information can be found at: http://ghosttreeracing.com/pdf/Mazda%20Raceway%20Laguna%20Seca%20Twilight%20Ride%205-10%20(1).pdf
