A few notes:
I will be bringing along series results that have been compiled thus far. I few things i needed to change since our attendance for the series did not allow me to use more that two race times to compile overall standings. Most riders have only come to two or three races at the most, and some may not attend tonight's race. Given the situation, I will average the race times for the leaders of each category and that will determine the winners. Those names will then be put into a hat and the winner will be drawn for the prize from Geoff's Bike & Ski which is a time trial helmet from Specialized. The winner can then go to Geoff's and order the correct size and choice of color. We just did not get enough sponsors to get a prize for each category. We did not get enough riders to use race funds for a cash prize either.
I would love to hear from you as to whether you think we should continue the series next season. If there is a consensus that we need another Time trial series, then i will consider doing this again. It takes a lot of personal time and sweat equity to put on races. Frankly, I was hoping more racers would give it a try. If you don't, grass roots racing will go away. The excuse i heard the most was "I don't do time trials" well I hate road races and I do them anyway. It is good practice.
So i am done with my speech and hope those of you that hate time trials and or "they won't help my training" will try it on for size.
Thanks and see you tonight.
