Tuesday races, NMCX races, and a few other miscellaneous races.
TNCX at Hays Apple Farm on 10/2
I am beginning a new insurance policy year with the 10/2 race. I will be charging a $5 one time per year administrative fee, but we will keep the Tuesday races at $10, unless we do some lit ones where I have special expenses. Detailed info below.
Tuesday CX at Hays Apple Farm in Bosque Farms
Directions: Take I-25 South from Albuquerque to the NM47/ Broadway Exit (215). (There is some construction at Rio Bravo, but it clears up after that.) After the exit, go south 7 miles to Bosque Farms. Do not speed through the reservation near the casinos, there are almost always rez cops there. Turn Right on Esperanza at the Blake's Lottaburger. Go west (right) 1/4 mile to the farm.
Course winds through the trees of Mr Hays' apple orchard and goes up onto the ditchroad for some fast bits. The cottonwoods should be turning yellow to add a nice backdrop. We may be dodging some fallen apples as Mr. Hays is expecting a good harvest this year. One of the most scenic courses we have. Mud is possible. There will be a NNMCX race here in January. Top finishers will probably win some of Mr Hay's honey.
If you want apples or honey (both are luscious) get there before the shop closes at 5PM. Apples are $1.25/lb for 1sts $0.50/lb for 2nds. I will have some samples.
Wednesday CX at Paradise Hills Park, info TBA
Tuesday CX at Sunnislope, other info TBA
These will be insured through bikeraces.org. USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. Entry $10, juniors free. If you do not have cash, I have a Square reader so I can take cards.
Starting in with the 10/2 race, I will be charging $5 a once per year fee for any Hawke Races. So you pay the $5 at the first Hawke Races event you do and need not do so again until the beginning of my next insurance year, which will be the beginning of October 2019.
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.
What is this $5 administrative fee business?
Starting in with the 10/2 race, I will be charging a $5 once per year fee for any Hawke Races. So you pay the $5 at the first Hawke Races event and you do and need not do so again until the beginning of my next insurance year, which will be the beginning of October 2019. This will include Tuesday or weekend races, anything under my insurance.
I buy my insurance per rider per year. So someone who shows up and does NMCX race or one crit costs me about $5. Someone like Eric Mease who does like 20 races, also costs me $5 for all the 20 races he does. My insurance costs went up about 40% this year, as I had a lot of riders that just did one event. So instead of raising entry fees, I feel that this system adds a slight incentive for riders who do several of my races. Also I think it is fairer, as it charges the riders in proportion to the way I get billed.
