Race Season is Coming!



Speed Theory Cycling Presents:

Prairie-Roubaix 'The Spring Classic Europe wished it had'
An April 18th Spring Road Event.
Speed Theory Cycling is hosting the April 18th Spring Road Event which promises to test your winter training program, road handling skills and your off-season Twinkie consumption problem.

The course is typically 'Spring Classic' and should be fun, fast and exciting.

The race will be held in three heats. CatA, CatB, CatC, with people able to choose which Cat they compete in, but sandbagging is highly discouraged. For example: Alex 'A-Train' would not race CatB.

CatA will be 5 laps (72km), CatB will be 4laps (58km), CatC will be 3 laps (43km). There will be a time cut-off of 2.5hours, to help encourage our volunteers to come out and help.

The race is $5 !! Yes, that is right, $5 !! You must be a 2010 member of the ABA though, this is slightly higher than a club race as it is sanctioned by the ABA.

Bring a tube or patchkit, no follow cars.


Start pushing the cardio because your first race is only a month and a half away!

We need 8 volunteers to help out during the race. No technical skills are required so convince your spouse, ex-spouse, friend or neighbor to help out so you can race. Let me (Tom) know as without volunteers we can't make this race happen. This is a short race, so it will only be 2.5 hours of volunteering.

Hmmm, maybe I should use my cross bike with fenders attached if it looks like that one picture...

I was thinking about coming, but 43 km in 2.5 hours might be outside my fitness level right now.

Rode the route today. The gravel was bone dry. We'll see what happens in a month and a half.

Those pictures aren't exactly inspiring me to participate in this event. I don't even have a mild mud fetish.

marshallmatt said...

does anybody know how many km's include gravel? and if a regular road bike will suffice?

Trev said...

I think it is only about 2 or 3 km. A regular road bike is totally fine and recommended. That is what most, if not all, of us will be racing on.

Will it be cancelled if it snows or rains?
