Thanks to the Sacramento Golden Wheelmen and the Bariani Family for sponsoring this fantastic race opportunity again. Thanks to this race I've discovered a wonderful local product I've come to love.
It was disappointing this year however to learn that neighbors prevented the organizers from obtaining a road closure from Yolo county for the finishing sprint. I'm concerned that the new Matchbox Winery may not be an easy fit for this race in the future, and wonder if there is some way they can be persuaded to accomodate and perhaps even support this regionally historic event.
If not, an alternative finish should be considered that allows a reasonable full-field sprint. Perhaps a finish at the KOM would prevent the chaos from a sprint on a road too narrow for a centerline, much less an arbitrary single lane sprint?
