2014 Racing Calendar Posted;
Important Info for 2014
Here it is! Over the last couple of months, your hard-working ABC Road Division committee has hammered out the 2014 racing calendar. You can access the calendar by the link at right throughout the season.
Updated Racing Categories
It's time to shake things up a bit, so for 2014 we will recognize the following categories:
- Open (formerly Expert)
- Intermediate (formerly Sport)
- Novice (formerly Beginner)
- Masters 45+
- Masters 60+
Hill Climb and Criterium Race Series
The hill climb series was a great success in 2013, so we are bringing it back in 2014 with seven great hill climb races. In addtion, we will have a separate criterium series, with five separate races on the fun Kulis air park loop throughout the summer!
One thing that will not change for 2014 is our race fee structure. Typical race fees will still be $18 online and $25 on site. Stay tuned for special series and stage race fees.
Mandatory Upgrade Policy
To ensure fair competition in the Novice and Intermediate categories, we are implementing a mandatory upgrade policy for 2014. It's simple: Novice or Intermediate racers who win a stage race overall general classification or five individual races in a season are required to upgrade to the next category.
Remembering Peter Lekisch
Our friend, fellow racer, and longtime Alaskan cycling patron Peter Lekisch passed away in December. In honor of Peter's contributions to ABC, we are retiring his bib number 11. Please consider attending the celebration of Peter's life on Thursday January 23, 3:30-4:30, at the Dena'ina Center.
