All in all it was a great race this past weekend. There were a couple of crashes, but luckily no one was hurt.
As for the results, Patrick Decker was the race winner. The overall winner was Peter Cook, holding onto his lead from the past two races. He also takes fastest brakeless fixed gear rider, and best young rider. Sprint classification stayed with Casey Temanson. King of the mountains went to Adam Mork (Me!), so did trix, cus like last time no one showed up.
Full Results will be posted soon !
NEWS: With this first round of races now complete, ive learned alot, and got alot of suggestions which have lead me to make some changes to the format.
- Race Winner now gets a SpokeCard - All SpokeCards are going to be slightly smaller* - Registration is 2$ for all races - All volunteers get free registration in their next race, or for a friend** * I can send image files to previous winners if they want the new sizes. ** If you volunteer in a race you automatically recieve the median or average race time (whichever is lower) for that race. You also recieve 4 Sprint points.
NEXT MONTHS RACE: Its going down November 15th. Same location, same time. (Folsom/Pearl ; 1:00 registration)
This race is the first in trilogy (set of 3 races). So everyone starts fresh. All finishing times and points will be cumalative.
Chances are that the conditions for next months race will be less than ideal... SO GET THOSE WINTER BIKES READY !
OTHER NEWS: StreetTumblers is hosting their first race November 1st. They've got shirts, hoodies, and goodies for the winners !! Check out their blog for more information (streettumblers.blogspot.com).
**** MORE UPDATES **** Ive got a new map submission, which claims to take the best checkpoints from all the other maps, to make the greatest map submission to date. Ill let the readers decide, blogger wont let me change the existing poll, so i just created a new one with the only option being map #7.
**** UPDATE **** So im going to do a volunteer roll-call. If you already emailed me, show up early like 12:30, if you didnt, you can still volunteer, just email me (email@example.com) or post a comment to this post.
Also i would like to enforce my new rule about classification leaders bringing a volunteer. That boils down to casey bringing atleast one volunteer (maybe ridge will do suckland) !!! And peter should also bring one.
Ok keep those votes coming im gonna end the poll in a couple of days !
So the next race is almost here, and although im waiting on some map submissions, ive already got quite a few, so if you intended on submitting a map, do it ASAP !! (email to: firstname.lastname@example.org)
My plan is to just post up the different maps and let people discuss which map/checkpoints they like. In the end ill be making the final decisions, and as usual the finalized checkpoints will be posted online a few days before the race !
Below are the map links, listed in no particular order.
