One of the biggest California road events of the 1970s and early 1980s, the Pacific Grove Butterfly Criterium returned to the streets of "Americas Last Hometown" in 2009. We had a strong cash purse and great primes and prizes from local Pacific Grove businesses.
The June 6, 2010 race sees lower entry fees AND a bigger purse. Local businesses have donated great prizes. Pacific Grove's Winning Wheels Bike Shop, Monterey's Joselyn's Bicycles and local Bed and Breakfasts like the beautiful Martine Inn have gone out of their way to support this race with unique prizes.
This has made the Butterfly not your usual Crit. It is well supported by the City of Pacific Grove and runs right through the normally busy downtown. PG businesses bring a unique community aspect, and the City residents come out to produce strong crowds of fans.
Come join host clubs GTR and VOS Racing and ride the Pacific Grove Butterfly Criterium. Pre-registration CLOSES at noon Thursday, June 3, but raceday registration is available. More info is at: http://ghosttreeracing.com/butterfly-criterium.html
