The rainy season has passed, and the trails are dry. So CU's Summer Short Track Series has finally begun! And what a way to begin, with a whopping 154 racers, including 20 wicked fast kids!
As always, Chuck from Full Cycle was out grilling hot dogs and brats, competing with the Boulder Junior Cycles tent with their hot dogs and biker-friendly (healthy) cookies. Dave Wright was on hand photographing the Women's A and Men's A fields. Check out some sweet photos here. Thanks Dave!
Results are posted.
We still have a few bugs to work out, so let us know if there are any corrections.
Additionally we had advertised hosting girls Juniors with the Women's B's, and boys Juniors with the Men's C's, but ended up racing all juniors together with Women's B's - the way we have normally done it in the past. We apologize to the juniors who missed the women's B start and raced in the C's instead.
We also started the single speed racers 30 seconds after the Men's B race. On that long course, several of the single speeders caught up and jumped right in with the B's, with a few passing more than half of the B field. Let us know either in comments or emails how you felt it went, and which style you'd prefer. How should we mix the juniors? Should single speeders just start with the B's, 30 seconds ahead, or 30 seconds behind?
Thanks for your input, and a big thanks for racing! We'll see you next Wednesday!
