The Alta Alpina Cycling Club is sad to announce that the Minden Criterium on Sunday 25 July is cancelled and the Diamond Valley Road Race is confirmed with great anticipation. With all the events the club promotes: Pinenut Cracker MTB race, Kingsbury Hill Climb Time Trial, The Alta Alpina Challenge, Carson Valley Classic, Kirkwood Cyclocross (and maybe another one: check the calendar) Wild Hillacious Century Series our volunteer base could also use a break. We really love to have this race (I love to race it myself), but the number of registered riders (20) between all the categories just couldn't make it work. There may be a lot of reasons why we were unsuccessful in promoting this race, and we will look into what we could do for next year (perhaps have both master's championship events: road and criterium together again). Any input or suggestions are welcome (ex-non constructive criticism ;})
Please reply to alpinajr at gmail.com with any concerns or comments.
I had a suggestion if we don't get the Master Crit Bid next year:
Only Category races, no ages. It might look like:
That way Most people could race two races and test their legs with the next category up. This way all races would be somewhat cooler and everyone would have time for a dip in Lake Tahoe on the way home. Just a thought.
We will refund any pre-registered (thanks to you) riders fees.
The Diamond Valley Road Race Master's Championship event is seeing great registration numbers and we expect to see top level racing on Saturday. The weather will be pretty warm so plan accordingly. We expect to have nuetral water, lead motorcycles and follow cars. Hope to see you there!
