Looks like we are ready to start the 2014 Practice Crits tonight - slight chance of rain, but it is likely to hold off until after the race.
We will begin closing the course to traffic starting about 5:45 pm, and a few volunteers would be appreciated to help set up the road barricades. Meet at the registration area (Rosa Rd and Research Park Blvd intersection).
Please be sure to thank all the new volunteers as this year we have new officials (Jason Austin & John Tedesco) and new registration and corner guard coordinators (Ben Grabow, David Davis, Shawn Bass, & Kenny Kemp) - without their stepping up the crits would not be happening! Also, please be patient too as this is the first time in these roles for everyone.
Also, a license update for UW racers (or other collegiate racers). According to USA Cycling: If the collegiate license is purchased first and another license is added later, the rider will only need to pay the price difference of the two. Collegiate licenses are only valid for use in collegiate events. In other words, you are required to have an annual USA Cycling license (or a 1-day license) in order to race, the collegiate license is only valid for collegiate events. The annual license would then cost $35 if you already have the collegiate license.
