Saturday is the Old Pueblo Grand Prix – only 15-16 and older are racing, but all are welcome and expected to come out to cheer on their teammates and enjoy some awesome racing close up.
Meet at clubhouse at 9am to get bikes and ride over to the crit area downtown. We will have the van and tents there already and some food. Plan on staying for the day with a change of clothes (if you are racing, or just street clothes – El Grupo t-shirts). If you don’t have a t-shirt, please ask for one bc we have a few left and might be able to make one work.
Juniors go off at 10:30am. We will stick around for other races after that, some of you will be in them, until Damiano maybe participates in the Kids’ Ride at 1:30. Then we will all take a break. Whether that means coming over to our house to hang out, or your own house. We will convene back by 4pm for the street sprints and pro women and men races to cheer them on.
El Grupo will be set up (if all goes well) on the Southwest corner of the Tucson Children’s Museum area, off of Scott and 13th St or nearby there to help animate that side of the event.
Sunday is Tumacacori Road Race. The weather predictions are not looking good so please, please plan accordingly.
The majority of folks will be going up in the first wave.
Steve Bohn will be driving Jesse, Alex and Nathan (if he wants) in the second wave.
More details to come in a few moments. Just wanted to get this up first.
