Hi Everyone! Just a reminder that there are 3 R.A.C.E. events going on this weekend - the Humboldt Road Race at 7:00am on Saturday morning, the Women's ONLY Criterium at 6:00pm on Saturday evening and the Cohasset Road Race on Sunday at 9:00am. Hope to see you out there!!!

Saturday, August 1st - Humboldt Road Race - 7:00AM (3.4 miles and 751 feet of climbing - just an early morning leg burn!) - Beat the heat with this quick early morning training race up old Humboldt Road! Registration will open at 6:45am at the bottom of Humboldt Road(right near Stilson Canyon Road), with the race starting promptly at 7:00AM. This will be a mass-start event for this short climb up Humboldt Road - starting near Stilson Canyon Road and finishing at the Stop Ahead Sign at the top of the hill. A map of this short-course Road Race can be found here: (Point event for the 2009 Chico Road R.A.C.E. Series)

Saturday, August 1st - SATURDAY NIGHT WOMEN'S ONLY Airport Criterium - 6:00PM - DOUBLE POINT NIGHT!!! Registration will open at 5:45pm on Convair avenue at the Airport - with the event starting promptly at 6:00pm. We'll be using our standard Tuesday Night course starting/finishing at Convair Avenue - . This is a WOMEN'S ONLY Criterium!! ALL Category A, B or C women riders are encouraged to attend!! The race will be 40 minutes PLUS 3 laps - but will include a ton of Point Primes, and any product that we can also get to give away as Prime Prizes. Must sign in and wear a helmet in order to compete. In addition, we MAY have one or two Mentors out there helping with coaching and skills-learning, but will be HIGHLY dependent upon who shows up. If you would like to be a MENTOR, please e-mail me at or talk to me at the race on Saturday Night. ***DUDES - PLEASE Come out to cheer on our ladies!!!! RAIN OR WET PAVEMENT WILL CANCEL THIS EVENT. (Part of the 2009 Chico Airport Criterium Series!)

Sunday, August 2nd - Cohasset Road Race (Airport to the Gravel!) - 9:00AM - A NEW Event in the 2009 Chico Road R.A.C.E. Series - and it could be a tough one! Registration will open at 8:30am on Ryan Avenue on the north end of the airport - just to the west of the Fifth Sun parking lot (look for me on Ryan Avenue with the clipboard and the!). This will be the START location. There will be two Categories for this event - Category "A" and Category "B" - Women's fields will be picked separately. Category "A" will start at 9:00am, with Category "B" starting at 9:03am. Fields MAY be combined if voted on by the riders. This is a tough road race course - we go from the Chico Airport all the way up Cohasset Road(NOT Vilas Road!) to where it turns to gravel - this is the FINISH line. The course is approximately 13.2 miles in length and climbs about 3,451 feet!! A map of this course can be found here: I will be there with the SAG vehicle for a portion of the race event - and, as usual, will have water at the top. As usual, MOST United States Cycling Federation will apply to this event - you know, WEAR A HELMET, don't ride like a lunatic, stay safe, mind the rules of the road, etc. ***One Note - The section from Fifth Sun to Cohasset Road(VERY short section) will be a neutral start - after that, the racing will be on.
