UP NEXT…COLLEGIATE ROAD NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

May 8-10, 2015 • Asheville, NC

Venue Change for NCCCC Championship Criterium on Sunday April 26th

Please find the following note from Anthony Corradi, UMTC Race Director, concerning the change in venue for the NCCCC Championship Campus Criterium this coming weekend.  Consult our Conference Google Group or see attachments below  for a map to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and a revised Race Flyer, suggested directions to the new venue (Minnesota State Fairgrounds), homestay contacts and pre-registration requests. The link to registration for the Ken Woods Memorial Road Race is HERE and the link to registration for the Campus Criterium is HERE. The Team Time Trial is filling up fast…only 8 spots left. See you at the races.

 We’ve had a few changes so I want to make sure everyone has the most current info. Our race is now being held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The flyer on USAC is current (just search for Campus Criterium), and I’ll also attach it here. Free parking will be available in the Camel lot (see attached map of Fairgrounds), and note that there will be a lot of road closures so I would advise everyone to come in from the east side via Snelling Avenue. If anyone is in need of a homestay please contact Emily at ballx153@umn.edu as soon as possible to get that worked out. Also please pre-register for the RR, TTT, and the Criterium if possible as that speeds things up for all of us on race day – Ken Woods Memorial is the name of the RR/TTT on USAC. There are only eight spots left in the TTT, so make sure you get those in soon. If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to email me at corr0231@umn.edu.

Here it is…the NCCCC 2015 Road Championships April 25 & 26!

With the 2015 Lindenwood University’s Road Extravaganza in the history books, individual and team competition standings have been calculated and posted.  NEXT UP–the 2015 NCCCC Road Championships hosted by the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities.  The Ken Woods Memorial Road Race and Collegiate Team Time Trial (OnLine Registration ONLY!) is on Saturday, April 25th.   The Campus Criterium is on the University of Minnesota–St. Paul Campus on Sunday, April 26th (Register Here).  Get your game face on and your kit together…this is for all the bragging rights!  See you in the Twin Cities.

It’s The Bell Lap for Lindenwood University’s Road Extravaganza!

The Dual-Conference (MWCCC and NCCCC) Event at Lindenwood University is this coming weekend, April 18-19.  It’s time to register (here) if you haven’t already done so!

The following is from Julie Carter, the Lindenwood Coach regarding the races this weekend:
Hey Everyone,

I wanted to put out a few notes to everyone to make sure everything is communicated clearly.

1. Friday Night there will be Street Sprints hosted on our campus. These are not for collegiate points, but they are for money! The prize money is $500/8 for the Men’s Open and $500/8 for the Women’s Open. Several of our own riders will be there and racing, and I hope it works with some of your timelines to come out and support the event. Even if you don’t race, they’re a great event to watch.

2. The Team Time Trial is still the same course as it was the last time we hosted a dual-conference race with the NCCCC. Please remember that parking is at the Danial Boone Home for both the TTT and the RR. Please respect that the Daniel Boone Home is open for its regular visitors, and don’t act in a way that would be disrespectful to its normal visitors (i.e. public urination or questionable language) while we are utilizing their facilities. Also, except for buses and trailers, we will need everyone attending the race to park in the “lower” parking lot (farthest from the Daniel Boone Home). This is so regular guests are able to park closer to the facility. If you bring friends or family, please know that they are welcome to actually visit the Daniel Boone Home (a state historic site) for $7. It would make a great way to kill time while visiting our race between laps. Please also make sure that NO BIKES are taken into the “village” where the Daniel Boone Home is located.

3. The RR course has been very slightly altered due to a bridge that is under construction. The contractor was supposed to have the bridge work completed by 4/9, but they will not be finished before our event after all. The course change adds almost exactly 1 mile to each lap (and another average-sized climb and descent). At this time, I do not plan to alter the number of laps that any group completes (except I will shorten the Junior 15-18 which doesn’t affect any of you). The feed zone is within walking distance of the parking area on the rise between the finish line and parking.

4. There are 3 locally-owned restaurants in Augusta, MO (just off the back side of the RR course); Augusta houses the first government-appointed wine-growing district in the U.S. If you go to any of the restaurants in Augusa, turn at either Church Street or Jackson Street off of Hwy 94. Either street will get you to the small, historic town in wine country. The nearest dining option is Wine Country Gardens. Their complete lunch menu is available on their website. Many, many other dining options are available farther away from the course.

5. There are very few gas stations near the RR and TTT course, so please plan ahead for this. You will definitely have to drive well out of your way if you need to fuel up at the RR course.

6. On Sunday, the start order of the Criterium races are a little odd and not the normal D-C-WB-B-WA-MA order. There is a reason for this! About 30 minutes away from our criterium is another excellent non-collegiate criterium held at Tilles Park Criterium. I have arranged the start times of our race, so almost anyone who would like should be able to race in 2 criteriums on the same day (though it is tight for some race categories)! I wanted to do my best to allow riders to be able to take advantage of all of the racing opportunities possible.

7. Also, there are lots of great restaurants right along the historic downtown St. Charles crit course. Since we are using their streets, I hope many of you will patronize the local restaurants and coffee shops!

Thanks & Looking Forward to it,
Julie
