First Adaptive Race

This week CU Cycling will be fitting the first of two adaptive races into the season. If you've never seen one of these races, you're in for a real treat. The athletes range from wounded veterans to racers who have overcome their disabilities since birth. Nearly all the adaptive racers ride custom bikes made by one of the racers: if you have a chance to get up close and check out the mechanics, it's definitely worth the inspection.

In order to fit in this extra race, the normal race schedule will be altered slightly as shown below:

4:30 p.m. - Registration begins
5:00 p.m. - Kid's Race ages 9 and under (10 minutes)
5:15 p.m. - Women's B and Juniors age 10-14 (20 min)
5:40 p.m. - Men's C's (20 min)
6:05 p.m. - Men's B (20 min)
6:30 p.m. - Adaptive Bikes (20 min)
6:55 p.m. - Women's A and Single Speed (20 min)
7:20 p.m. - Men's A (25 min)

Only the Men's A and B and Women's A should be affected by these changes. The typical race schedule applies again next week. Please see below for the course map; Garrett's been nice, it's gonna be a quick one with lots of passing! (Note: the adaptive racers will likely ride the entire course marked "non-adaptive".)
