As I am sure everyone knows by now, Craig Heywod will not be available to officiate this year due to some health issues, and an email solicitation was sent out the the local ride list serve seeking volunteers to become USA Cycling officials so that we would be able to hold the practice crits this year.
Everyone be sure to thank the two individuals, Jason Austin and John Tedesco, who stepped up to become official USA Cycling officials and will serve as the officials for the practice crits in Craig Heywood's absence. Without their help, we would not be having the practice crits this year - so thanks guys!
At this point, things appear to be progressing on time and they should both have their official's licenses by the start of the practice crits. If things change, be sure to check this site for updates.
