Midweek Race Info

We may start a Wednesday MTB starting 8-11, if there is enough interest. Most of my dirt racers do not do the crits.

Tuesday crits will be doing the Nationals course on 7/20 and 7/27.

Note that the 7-27 and 8-24 races will be run by Nero Veloce and will NOT require that riders be show proof of vaccination in order to race their normal categories.  All the other creteriums will require this.

Tuesday Night Road Criteriums

Please sign up on the RSVP page if you are coming.  We are going to need to have an idea of field sizes, as we may need to add a group. There will be a a 12 rider minimum for each Tuesday, so if you do not RSVP the crit may not happen. Please RSVP by 11pm the Monday before each crit.

If you are interested 7:15 race, email me directly at hawke@bcdacing.com by the night before the crit. I took it off the form. If we have enough riders sigh upi I will email you back. Vaccinated riders are welcome to do the 7:15 race for some extra miles if they wish, but non vaccinated riders cannot do the earlier races.  

Entry fee $15, 23 & under $7.50, 18 and under, free, you can pay at the race or
Use our online payment site to pay online.

We will require that all participants show documentation of COVID vaccination for the clinic, A and B races. The best thing to do is scan and email me the vaccination documentation before the race. The next best thing is to bring it with you. A copy is fine. I am not going to make exeptions for this, so be warned.

7-27 and 8-24 races will NOT require documentation of COVID vaccination.

Balloon Fiesta Park Directions:
Get off I-25 at the Alameda exit. Go west on Alameda to San Mateo, turn right and head north to Balloon Fiesta Parkway, turn west, go to then end and park. Ride through the gate and across to the west side of the park.  Google Maps Placemark.

Crit info:
The first few laps will be ridden at a fast tempo pace with no attacks. Tempo on each group will be a little faster than the group before. This lets beginner and recently moving up riders do a few laps with the peloton to practice, so (almost) no one gets shelled on the first lap. The more experienced riders can show the newer riders about proper cornering lines and smoothness. We will shoot for the ideal of “a little less than as fast as we can go and keep the group together” speed. After the tempo laps riders may attack as they please.

We will post results for the top 5 finishers in each group. This will be self scored, if you do not log your finish you will not be listed. We may have some nominal prizes or crowd primes. We will have someone at the finish with a lap card.
Riders may do as many crits as they wish (and qualify for) at no extra charge. There will be no time space between groups, but riders can warm up behind any other group as long as they stay out of the way and stay behind the largest group of riders.

Riders dropped from the group may draft warm up riders or the field. If you come in 5 or 10 mins late, just jump in behind the peloton. Lapped riders will not be pulled; get back on the peloton if you can. We ask riders that are 2 or more laps down on the largest group to stay at the back of the peloton and not participate in chasing, attacking, etc. Free laps for mechanicals/flats are fine. If you take a free lap within the last 5 laps, please stay at the back with the twice lapped riders. Get into the group you came out of.

We will run these rain or shine, but promoter reserves the right to cancel or move the course in the event of severe inclement weather or other issues. If weather looks dodgy, I make a call if we are on or not at 4PM raceday, this will be posted on the website and to the bike-racers list.  There is a park lightning alarm. If it goes off we have to stop. 

We may do some variations, but the yellow line shows the basic loop.
