Misc events to help fill the gaps in the NM calendar.




In accordance with our poll, we will do two more road criteriums at BFP.
Please RSVP as there will be a 12 rider minimum. Info below.
We will do our clinic with the C races at 5:45

2018 Baloon Fiesta Park Tuesday Races






Since turnout is a bit up and down for late season events, We will have an RSVP for
the last two criteriums. It does not cost anything just sign up on the form below. I think we need about a dozen riders to make it worthwhile setting up the crits, so if we do not get that many we will cancel.

The C race is for beginners, older masters, and women. We will give the women a separate start if they want.  
6:40PM Mens A/B 50min: (5 tempo) everyone else.  
If we get a lot of A riders we will run the A and B together.  
Women who want to do another race can line up for mens A or B. 
A and B racers, please consider riding the C race as an informal coach, see below.
Results at bottom of page.

Notes on the A race:
Last time we combined the As with the Bs as there were only 5 or so of them. 
If you are an A rider, check the this website after Tuesday AM to see what race you will do.  If there is not a separate A race you will need to be ready to race at 6:40PM with the Bs.

Notes on the C race:
I am going to do a mini clinic and talk about crit racing for a few minutes before the C race, starting at 5:45PM. Just gather at the start line. More experienced riders can just line up at 6PM. I will also answer questions. I will try to cover the basics and then something a little different each Tuesday. I will try to have a brief question session after the C race. We will do 5 tempo laps, but the last one will be a little faster. If you are men 50+ or a cat 5 and can hang in the Bs for at least half the race, I am going to ask you to ride with them. You or any other A or B rider are welcome to ride around with the C racers, maybe give them some pointers, show them lines through corners, or even give them a wheel to sit on if they are off the back. You get a warm up and also help someone out.      

We may add, move, or change categories. Any changes will be posted here on this webpage.

Directions (for the west side summer course)
  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
(for the TNMTB go through the gate on the NE corner of the same parking area to get to the course)

General Info:
  These will be insured through bikeraces.org. USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. This means that they are a little easier to organize and a little cheaper. We will do fewer starts than has been done previously, and crits will be a little longer. We will post try to 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. No TNC point series this year. We will have someone at the finish with a lap card.  Entry $10, juniors free.  
  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. Warm up riders must have a piece of orange ribbon tied to their seatpost (provided.)
  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.  If you have armrest/aero bars we do not ask that you take them off, only that you do not use them during the crits.  
  
Tempo laps:
  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.  

Weather:
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.
