Here is a first go at. Please all stayed posted as to what is going on as we are going to need the whole village again on this one. Also, when I write leaving time that is the time I want to leave, so please come 10-15 minutes before that to pack up your bike. That is all you should have to do when you arrive: pack your bike. You should have everything else done before you arrive.
Friday is the Time trial. I want all riders at Old Tucson Studios 2 hours before their start time. At the parking lot, at our tents two hours before their start. This gives them enough time to warm up with no stress or rushing.
Daniela, Lizzy, Lauren, and Jade will need to leave the clubhouse first at 9:30am to be there by 10am. Daniela will drive the Mini van and will bring out the tents, water and a bunch of trainers.
All riders racing in Junior categories are to leave next at 11:30am. Chloe, Emily, Tyler, Kyle, Connor, Ben, Keenan, Nick, Cameron, Santa Cruz, Daniel, Matthews, Jesse. Nippy I am hoping that you could drive the team van at this time to get the kids there by noon. You will need to pack the bikes on the trailer. Also, we will need one more parent to drive at this time. More parents are welcome to help load up bikes and get riders out there and warmed up if possible.
Then at 12:30 I, Ignacio, would like to leave with Logan and Donovan. Nippy can I borrow your truck for this?
All racers should have a change of clothes with them so they can be comfortable before and after their races. As well please eat well in the morning and stay hydrated all day. If you need to stay in school longer and can have your parent drive you out, please let us know via the comment section. Also please let me know if you will be going with the team so we can plan best. I will make sure that there is plenty of water and food out at the race for all.
Each group of riders will leave for home after they are done with their TT racing to maximize rest. It is going to be a long weekend!
Saturday Road Race in Green Valley
The parking area for this event is at the intersection of Duval Mine Road and Continental – on Continental. The feed zone is just up the road on the North side of the street. I am going to want one car in the feed zone area and one in the start line staging area on Continental. We will need help with that in the Second Wave only.
Women cat 4, Juniors in the 15-16 age group and 13-14 age group are going to need to be at the start one hour early at the latest. Which mean I want you there at 6:10am which means leaving town at 5:15am. Daniela will drive the team van at this time, but will need some driving help to get everyone there. (You will not all fit!) This first wave is EARLY in the morning so please dress accordingly with extra clothes to change into for the ride home – it will be chilly in the morning!
Juniors in the 17-18 category, Men 3 and 4 we need to be down there at 8am which means we need to leave at 7am. I will be driving the mini van at this time. Richard will have to drive his car, as well.
We will have some food with us for post-race replenishment – but please feel free to contribute to that!
Circuit Race on Sunday
All racers will ride to the start from the clubhouse as a great warm up for the event. I will have some one (Colin?) drive the van up though at 6am to put up the tents and such.
Women Cat 4 will leave the clubhouse at 5:45am.
Men 4, and all juniors need to leave the clubhouse at 7:45 am.
After the racing on Sunday, we will most likely need to stick around for awards. Here is where that village of people comes in, again! Riders – you should plan ahead with a change of clothes in a bag that a parent or someone else can take up for you (or ride with backpack to start). Parents – it would be great to have some food and cold drinks to enjoy. We will have the tents and chairs up there. And we will have an El Grupo info table near the start/finish line since we are beneficiaries of this event – Monique and Colin can help with it, but it would be great to have others help out as needed, as well.
Digest all of this and then let us know what your questions are! Thanks everyone!
