We had a very busy day at the first Early Bird event. A total of 376 riders ( the all time high for an Early Bird is 410 riders). Only one accident where someone got hurt ( a broken collar bone). We had 26 people take out their first USCF annual license at the race and 79 people take out a one day license.
Thanks to all the mentors who put in lots of miles helping out. The Cat 4 and experienced 5 race was only slightly slower than the 1/2/3 race but since the 1/2/3 race had a lot of mentors in it there were probably a lot of tired legs in the 1/2/3 race. Overall a lot of very fast racing put in by the 4s and different 5s groups and more importantly a lot of safe finishes. It was good to see that some of the 4s and 5s took the advise to keep things strung out on the last laps which helped keep things safer for everyone.
