Have you heard about this little crit in Chico at the end of September? No? Well, you should.
I know it’s late in the season. I know we’re all tired. But…it’s a new race. On a new course. And they’re giving the W1/2/3 field a prize list equal to the P1/2 (and the 35+ 1/2/3, too, if you’re into that sort of thing). Okay, it’s no NRC $10,000 prize list, but equal money is equal money.
I’m kind of worried that they won’t have a good turnout (which, well, they hopefully thought about when they decided to promote a race at the end of September), and that certain people will start crowing about how women don’t want to race, look at how few showed up, blah blah blah…and hell, it’s flat, there’s money to be won and a new race to support, and Chico is a college town so you can start your off-season with beer and nachos right after our race (nothin’ says off-season like beer before noon).
So, what do you say, head up there and race with me? Pretty please? I’ll buy your first brew…
