It's quite the festival with push bikers all the way up to kitted out pros. Here's a rundown of what to expect for next Wednesday's racing:
Buckley Eliminator Wed May 23
Registration: $10 5:00-6:15, Buckley Park, across from Durango Cyclery
Race Description: This race bouts 4 racers in a head to headlap around the course. The top two racers from each round continue on to the next. There is a last chance qualifier for racers that are eliminated early to come back and steal the overall win.
Racing begins around 6:15 with a seeding run for each racer. Holeshot primes from RGP's!!!
Registration: 5:30-6:30: 1-2 people
Seeding Timers: 6:30-6:45: Grady, 4-5 others
Results: 6:30-end: Grady, 1-2 others
And don't forget an extra $5 to enter yourself into the drawing to win 1 of two Trek bikes or a signed Jersey from some dudes named Howard and Payson... Heard they're pretty quick.
Categories: Racers can choose between A and B categories. Start times will be based on what time you arrive at the start, NOT based on category- We are recommending A racers arrive at the start early so they can start early.
(No longer will endurance races be held exclusively in the spring, and enduro in the fall. Instead, we will mix it up each week. Additionally, new this season, we will have two different omniums. The first will be a one-day points based omnium for combined results at the Purg race. The second omnium will cover the Fall season and points will be ranked on a racer's best 3 out of 4 races.
A week before each event you will receive an email with registration times, locations and race info as well as a list of volunteer needs for the race. You are not required to volunteer but it always helps! Please note that all town races will have a $10 entry fee. And a friendly reminder, this series costs DEVO money to run, so please help support a program that is unique to our community!
Finally, a big thanks to all the sponsors of DEVO and this series: Zia Taqueria, Durango Urgent Care, Mercy Sports Medicine, and Fort Lewis College.)
